The real globetrotters are those who try the local cuisine of the cities they traveled to. One traveler would not be disappointed to find the taste of paella and tapas even in a cheap Barcelona hotel. Wines from all over Spain are also available as long as you ask where to look for them. The culture in this city is to hop from one place to another to taste each place’s delicacy. Try to follow the link for useful information of hotels or guides for traveling and food in Barcelona. But if you are first time traveler it would help a lot and is practical if you hire a travel guide or you know some one there. Food in this place is delicious (as one friend commented) besides the traditional Spanish dishes.
Backpacker travelers tend to taste these sumptuous meals because they are mostly on the go, hiking and trekking.
Garlic is a Spanish favourite and used in almost everything. Olives are also an integral part of Spanish cuisine, whether used in olive oil (of which Spain produces more than any other country) or marinated and eaten as an aperitif or in cooking.
When i’m in Spain I always get Paella, it tastes great. Its a rice dish that can you can have with fish or meat. Look out for it next time your in Spain.
