Catalonian gastronomy is one of the main attractions in both Barcelona and the rest of the region. As a Mediterranean zone, the meals are full and rich in all types of food (meat, fish etc.), as well as reputedly healthy and balanced. The most popular meat dish is the Catalonian Botifarra and the typical fricassee, made with beef and mushrooms. The ‘cap-i-pota’ is a stew containing beef cheek and hooves, while the ‘rostit’ is a typical Catalonian roast. Fish dishes are abundant, due to its geographical location, and the fish menu is a long one. We recommend the sardines, the tuna with ‘sanfaina’ vegetable sauce, the fish ‘suquet’ and what is known as the ‘light opera of fish’ (funnily enough, it is called an ‘opera’ when it contains lobster). For the sweeter tooth, Catalonian cream is a must-try. Catalonia boasts some of the best restaurants in the world, including El Bulli, a restaurant owned by famous chef Fernan Adria, located in the Rosas port (Gerona), although it is temporarily closed. Of course, this area is also famous for its cava and wine.
