Barcelona: Quimet & Quimet

Round One

If you are researching the best place for tapas in Barcelona, you will definitely find Quimet & Quimet on the list. The café was recommended to us as well by a friend of ours so we decided to go our first evening!

Quimet & Quimet is a small tapas bar with standing room only. What makes it special is that they only serve preserved foods! The menu is full with unique combinations and everything was delicious! We also lucked out a bit – the guy next to us was alone and super friendly. He comes to Quimet & Quimet often and gave some tips about what we should order. When he left, he had half a bottle of cava over and gave it to us a parting gift.

The weirdest part of the evening was when we ordered coffee and cookies. To our surprise we received a serving of advokaat and Jules Destrooper cookies – both Belgian specialities!
