It's crazy how many new places keep opening in the city! Every time I see something interesting I write it down in my notebook. Here are my recent findings (I haven't tried them yet so I don't know if they're good or not!):

  • La Trocadero: This place hasn't opened yet, but you can follow them on Instagram (@latrocadero). Urban vegan food.

  • Rocambolesc: Michelin-starred Jordi Roca's crazy ice-cream place has just opened in Liceu!

  • Casa Dorita: a tapas bar in Sant Antoni, with a pretty interior.

  • Dos Pebrots: The team behind Dos Palillos is opening this place very soon, on Dr Dou in the Raval (@dospebrots)

  • Chigre: The team behind Llamber is opening up a new place, very curious what it will be like!

  • All you Eat is Love: Flexitarian restaurant on Marina, looks great. @allyoueatislove

  • El Mama y La Papa: A restaurant that will open in an old anchovies factory in Poble Sec. Instagram: @elmamabarcelona.

  • El Chiringuito de Bonay: in the evenings (Wed-Sun) you can go up to the Rooftop in Casa Bonay. They opened it up very recently and it looks interesting.

  • Auto Rosellon: Organic food, good coffee in a beautiful environment. @autorosellon

  • Merkado and Cheeso: the Melia hotels are investing in their restaurants and it seems that the result is something very interesting!

  • Hidden Cafe: Specialty coffee and great looking cakes.
