Elisabets Barcelona

Elisabets – Radio … live transmission

You could wander past Elisabets a million times and never realise it’s there.

If you’re looking for good quality and reasonably priced food at the heart of the city, then this is a place you really need to know how to get to. 

This is one of my favourite year-round spots for good bites and meeting friends after work. It’s very popular with students and some of their teachers from the nearby university. A good all-day all-rounder.

Sit yourself down – order a beer or sparkling water as you gather yourself and think a way through the menu.

Then order a litre jug of beer for € 4.55, or a few bottles of imported beer. 

Then try the patatas con bolonesa “rabiatta” – chunky fried potato wedges with bolognese meat sauce – only € 3.10, and almost a meal in its own right.

Then order a plate of pebrots – little, juicy hot peppers; a plate of morcilla, cunningly sweet black pudding (blood sausage), and/or choricitos (little spicy sausages); and pa amb tomaquet (toasted bread with tomato and oil). Maybe order a little salad. And then you’ll be all set to explore the city at night.

Reassemble the next morning at the same table (in the corner behind the glass screens) for breakfast of coffee and pastries as you recount your adventures of the night before, and plot your next exciting day in this ‘city of marvels’.

Hot & cold sandwiches, pizzas and a good value menú del día available.

Does not accept credit cards.

Bon profit!
