Me and a buddy are going to Barcelona next week for six days.
Will probably stay in Born and traverse the city by foot.
We are both food fans, but have a budget of max. 40 Euros for a meal that does not include drinks (only aqua for us), and most places should be within the 10-25 Euros range.
We are not fans of small portions and pretentiousness, prefer local and unusual stuff with decent value for money.
Places should not require a reservation, although if it's absolutely great and necessary...
Lunch menu recommendations are definitely welcome.
I looked at some posts and the forum and came up with interesting places like Paco Meralgo, La mar salada, Flo, Gresca, Sesamo, Quimetx2.
What I'd really like to hear from you is, which places are the best for these dishes or cuisines:
1 Goose barnacles , if in season and less than 40 E a pop.
2 Good Paella with seafood
3 Great Tapas
4 Very Catalonian specialties
5 Iberian pork cheeks
6 Seafood delight, especially pulpo and lobster
7 Sweets in general and especially Turron if it can be found out of season
Thanks in advance!
