Poblenou is considered a fairly new neighbourhood and it has not always been as attractive or cool to live there as it is now. Despite this, there is a place that has been there for quite a long time. El Tio Ché is considered by many locals as the best horchateria in Barcelona. Horchata is a type of drink made of water, sugar and tiger nuts. It is a traditional drink to try, and what better place to try it than in one of the classics?
It is located in the Rambla de Poblenou, and you will know when you arrive there because there is always a line of people waiting. It is nothing fancy, but the best places are usually like that. Besides horchatas, they also have delicious ice creams (a must-try) and other typical products. It is great to take something to go and continue exploring the neighbourhood, but you can also sit at the bar and enjoy other things like a vermouth and/or a sandwich.
