I’ve read from several sources that the best food can be found in La Boqueria Market in Barcelona. Aside from selling all sorts of produce, fish, cured meats and candies there were also several tapas bars in the market.
We went to La Boqueria right after eating churros and espadrilles shopping. Even if I was still full I was hoping to try some tapas. When we got there around 6:00 pm and all the tapas bars were already closed! They close around 3-4 pm. What a big disappointment. We didn’t have time to go back so I have to go back to Barcelona for this among other things.
It was a real market but it didn’t smell like our own wet markets in Manila. The Mercado San Miguel in Madrid was a cooked food market while La Boqueria combined raw and cooked food under one roof.
These unique looking creatures are called percebe cantabrico or goose barnacles.
This guy was a friendly Pinoy so I bought some fruit jellies from him.
I wish a bought some churros with honey. I wonder if they taste as good as churros covered in chocolate.

Picture on the left are cousins and on the right are batch mates. I wonder what the batch mates were laughing at.
