FOOD: No date nights and going outs without delicious food

There is no excuse of not tasting the delicious variety of Spanish dishes and Estrella beer when you come to Barcelona! Hitting the streets in the districts such as Pòble Sec, Barri Gotic or Born, you can't pass by the fourfold cafés, bars and restaurants. Spoiling yourself with mouth-watering tapas, pinxtos, churros or wine is a must-to-do in this easy-going city. Go out late, no need to rush and enjoy the late evening hours with a diversity of plates full of yummy bites.
I recommend to just order several dishes of either tapas (which you find everywhere) or fondly prepared pintxos from La Tesqueta De Blai (for just 1€ each!) in Pòble Sec. Also walk by the harbor and pass by the cute market stands in Barceloneta trying their churros con chocolate. But I do only recommend these sugary creations for those who have got a sweet tooth.
From Barceloneta you should go to Born and drink a nice glass of white wine at the Disset Graus at the Carrer Antic de Saint Joan with juicy olives and tortilla before heading to bed . If you're lucky you'll bump into a nice lady on the way to the wine bar who will offer you a voucher for a wine for free. Don't miss this bar if you want to have a rather elegant wine tasting evening. And the service there is great as well.
