Mixing It Up.Barcelona is home to countless tapas joints. They sit on street corners and back alleys all over the city. Many are commercialized and target tourists, while others are homegrown, centuries-old locations. There are plenty to choose from.
After checking out a few duds, a few run-of-the-mills, and a few locales with an abundance of food and lack of patrons, it was surely a sign from the tapas gods that we stumbled upon Bodega Biarritz.
Owned by a smiling and talented young woman from Biarritz (another destination that holds a special place in my heart) and staffed by the friendly and accommodating Manolo, Bodega Biarritz is home to some amazing tapas/pinchos and a fantastic vibe. The chorizo was my favorite, but the potato cake and onion tart also held high spots. Nothing that I ate was forgettable. While one night, we had to line up in the street for a seat at the bar, another afternoon we were one of four groups enjoying a quick bite; both times, it was an experience to remember.
Bodega Biarritz was, and will remain, my favorite tapas/pinchos joint in Barcelona. It's anything but run-of-the-mill.
