Quim de la boqueria Barcelona

Within the same Mercat de la Boqueria and for less than € 20, you have a wide range of tapas and starters, squid, fresh fish cooked on the grill, sandwiches and desserts. All made with high quality products and market.
Recently renovated, it has improved its space where the bar now hosts more stools but continues with its impetus and energy to offer one of the best gastronomic offerings in the city.
This place is a classic of the emblematic Barcelona market and has existed since 1987.

We recommend his signature dish: eggs with squid or Rovellons with foie gras. But one thing you must have clear, you will not find anyone who makes the eggs as in the Quim de la Boqueria. Simply spectacular.
