Barcelona Food Experience

Hi.

Welcome to Barcelona Food Experience! I'm on a mission to find good food in the city, and share it with you. I hope you can find something you like! 

El Tast de Joan Noi

This is a place we discovered when we were food shopping at the local market in Gracia. Sometimes bars/food stalls in markets can be a hit, but sometimes really a big miss. So I was suspicious, but we went ahead and sat down in one of the high chairs and ordered a few dishes. And it was delicious!

We usually have almejas (clams), little fried fish, scallops which is all great, but the tuna is really amazing. They put a delicious sauce on it that just makes it tuna perfection. This is a place to go for early Saturday (before noon) when it’s easier to get a seat.
