My First Tapas at Cerveseria Catalana, Barcelona

by - February 03, 2017

When we're talking about Barcelona, one thing that can't be missed is Tapas!! Tapas are a wide variety of appetizer or snacks in Spanish Cuisine. To be honest, i never had any experience with tapas before. My curiousity about this Spanish food made me found out about the best tapas restaurant in Barcelona. I got some result for that, and the first restaurant that i visited is Cerveseria Catalana.

Cerveceria Catalana is located at the city centre of Barcelona, right next to Catalunya. I went here for having a lunch after visited Casa Milà, which is just a few steps away from this restaurant. Reservation are not necessary to eat at this place. They have a big space and you will not wait too long for eat here. 

At this visit, we got the outdoor seating. So we didn't get inside the restaurant and ordered their food on bar. We just ordered some of their recommendation foods from the menu.

Assorted tapas 

Razor Clams

Grilled Cuttlefish

Cabreaos Eggs style 
For the first time eating tapas, i think the food is very tasty. I tried something "new" in here, that i never eat before, the anchovies and green chili. I liked them a lot. For me, all of their food is cooked perfectly with less spices. The seafood is also really fresh. My favorite is the grilled cuttlefish. It has a great texture (not chewy), and it doesn't smells fishy at all. If you're the first timer in here, i recommend you to order their Assorted Tapas. Everything on that plate was so yumm.... Surprisingly, the price is also quite affordable. We only paid for €77.75 (after VAT) for all those foods and drinks as well.

Satisfied with the first visit, we decided to had a lunch (again) before we leave Barcelona. This time we get a table inside and i just know that they have more foods, beside on their menu.

They put some foods that already seasoned at the window. We can choose any food that we like, and they will cook it at that time. It can be grilled or fried, depend on what kind of food that we choose. I quite interested with Zucchini flower, because it's also something "new" for us. We don't have it at my country so i think this is the right time to try it. We also ordered the seafood "satay". Because we've  tried their seafood before and it's not dissapointed at all.

We also gave some try with their baguete sandwich and salad. I've read some reviewed and they said the sandwich is recommended,


Baguette Sandwich
Personally, i don't like their sandwich. Because they using baguette that has a crispy texture, and i think it's not suitable for make a sandwich. The last food that i ordered is Patata Bravas. We ordered it because we saw almost every table order this food, and we really feel curious about it. We were asking to the waitress about this food and they said it's a fried potato. Sounds simple and nothing special, but when we ate that, we will say "This is the best fried potato ever!!!" They cut the potato at the medium size (not too big and not too small), so it has the perfect texture. Crisp and smooth at the same time. The other things that we like is the sauce. I can't say more about it. You should try by yourself. You'll not regret it.
