Trendy tapería in the quieter neighbourhood of Poble-Sec, Barcelona.
If you want to experience authentic tapas of excellent quality, 13 de Margarit is definitely a good option, far removed from the more central touristy places. This modest tapería boasts a cool, rustic interior and is popular amongst locals. It is not cheap, but not too overpriced given the charming atmosphere and quality of ingredients. The Tostas range from €5-6 and the Raciones €10-12, though you can often get half portions for half the price, such as the delicious home-made croquetas which are some of the best I’ve had. The staff were very friendly, and after our meal brought us some complementary Crema de Orujo, a sweet Catalonian speciality which is definitely worth trying after your meal.
