Mexican food in Barcelona: What restaurants should you visit?

Mexican food in Barcelona: What restaurants should you visit?

Mexican food places have long been a feature in Barcelona. Nachos and the guacamole opened the door to more typical and traditional dishes such as esquites, aguachiles, moles, chiles en nogada, white pozole, huarache, chicken with pipian sauce, cochinita pibil or Yucatecan tamales, to mention just a few examples of Tex-Mex cuisine.

Mexican cuisine holds pride of place as one of the richest and most varied in the world, due to the variety of flavors and preparations. There are lots of places to eat in Barcelona: from Mexican restaurants offering signature cuisine with a touch of tradition, to taco bars and other establishments offering quality fast-food.

Given this variety, we want to help you find the most authentic locations: we have a great selection of the best Mexican food establishments in our city.

La Taquería

La Taquería, located in Passatge de la Font, 5, boasts authentic Mexican street food. The tacos are spectacular, ideal to go with a good michelada. Among the taco proposals there’s the ever-popular flank steak, and many other options such as steak tacos, tongue, sausage, chicken, nopal cactus, and tacos al pastor or gringa-style.

If you feel up to it, try out their special cucarito, with surprise ingredients. On weekends they prepare traditional recipes such as aguachiles or chicken with mole. Great tequila and Chavela Vargas songs give this locale a great touch of authenticity!

Tlaxcal Cantina

On 27 Calle del Comerç, Tlxacal Cantina is a gastronomic taqueria, as defined by its owners.

A genuine restaurant which seeks to honour traditional Mexican cuisine with a dynamic format, where you can eat quality Mexican dishes at a very affordable price. In addition to an interesting taco menu - the fish ones are very good - they serve more unusual dishes which we recommend: tortilla soup, chilaquiles or enchiladas.

Don’t forget to leave room for the scrumptious homemade desserts. Their lunch menu is very economical and well worth it.

Taco Alto

This chain has 4 locales in Barcelona, located in Universitat, El Born, El Raval and in Barceloneta. In any of these locations you can eat tacos by unit, and try as many varieties as your stomach has room for.

Each piece comes with an abundant filling accompanied with incredible fresh tortillas to delight your palate.

Among the specialties of the house are the taco de cochinita pibil and the Pirata, as well as grilled veal with melted cheese, with an intense, rich flavor which feels like it could go on forever.

Cantina Machito

If any place in Barcelona can boast of offering real Mexican cuisine since the 1990s, it’s Cantina Machito.

Located on the calle de Torrijos, 47B, this eatery is characterized by an informal and colorful atmosphere, where you can sit down to exquisite preparations of many different kinds of Mexican classics, and an extensive menu to suit all tastes.

The best thing on the menu? Without a doubt, you have to try the cochinita pibill, the chicken with mole poblano and the green enchilada -- fabulous dishes that you must try if you visit Machito Cantina.


Located on Pla de Palau, 19, stands Oaxaca, a bastion of Mexican food in Barcelona. Traditional Mexican dishes refined with cutting-edge techniques make their dishes something truly special.

Among their star dishes, we should highlight the octopus and the chicken with mole. They also have their own vegetable garden where they grow the Mexican herbs and vegetables that they use in their cuisine.

A total luxury. In addition to the restaurant, Oaxaca has its own mezcalería with more than 200 types of mezcal brands to choose from.

Clearly, Barcelona boasts an ample choice of restaurants to visit. These are a just small sample of what’s on offer. So if you find yourself in the Pere Tarrés hostel in Barcelona, you can visit the ones we suggest, or discover others for yourself.

How do people celebrate Carnival in Barcelona?

How do people celebrate Carnival in Barcelona?

Carnival (or as it is known here, Carnestoltes) is one of the most special weeks of the year in Barcelona. These are days when the city becomes a veritable pageant of tradition and celebration.

As you may know, Carnival is a lunar party! This means that it starts in the cycle before Lent, seven weeks after the first full moon following the winter solstice. Therefore, the dates on which it is celebrated vary from year to year.

Specifically, in 2020, the city will be filled with music, light and colour from February 20 to 26.

Seven days when Barcelona hosts hundreds of events and activities to celebrate traditional Carnival with joy. In this post, we’ll tell you in detail about the main celebrations held every day, so that you don’t miss out on one of the most representative holidays in Catalonia.

A week of light and fun in Barcelona

The Carnestoltes King is responsible for kicking off Carnival in Barcelona. This is the central character of the festivities throughout the region, the figure representing the spirit of fun and celebration.

During Carnival week, Fat or Greasy Thursday (Catalonia known as Dijous Gras) starts with a musical parade with devils and correfocs beginning on the Rambla and moving to the Mercat del Born, where it ends with an orange fest and fireworks.

This is also a day marked by eating and typical fare, where families gather to enjoy some of the region’s traditional specialties, such as butifarra d'ou, tortilla and coca de llardons. Food plays a key role in the celebrations, for obvious reasons! So don’t hesitate to join in some of the many tortilla contests taking place in the different neighborhoods.

Between one delicacy and another, we arrive at Saturday, one of the most special days and, the one with the greatest carnival atmosphere in Barcelona. On this festive day, different street parties are organized in all the neighborhoods throughout the city - there’s no escape from the fun!

So don’t hesitate to join in some of the many tortilla contests taking place in the different neighborhoods. The presence of King Carnestoltes, a pitched battle with oranges and El Sarau de la Taronjada, a traditional masked dance, make up the centerpiece of the day.

Carnival ends on Ash Wednesday (dimecres de cendra), also known as the Burial of the sardine, when the imposition of ash symbolizes penance and repentance for the days of Carnivalesque excesses.

The night of Carnival

Apart from the official events, throughout the week there is also much nightlife to enjoy. Most clubs in Barcelona organize themed parties to celebrate Carnival.

However, the place where the nights take on a new dimension during Carnival is undoubtedly in Sitges, one of the most happening areas on the Mediterranean coast. Its pubs, nightclubs and street parades offer a remarkable contrast to the more traditionally festive atmosphere of the capital, and it’s the perfect spot to let your hair down during Carnival.

Without a doubt, Carnival is one of the most special times to visit Barcelona. Holidays, tradition and all-out fun that you’ll enjoy even more when you stay at the Pere Tarrés Barcelona Hostel

Upcoming concerts in Barcelona for you to enjoy if you’re in the city

Upcoming concerts in Barcelona for you to enjoy if you’re in the city

One of the great advantages of being in Barcelona is that the city constantly plays host to some outstanding concerts. In addition, another thing to keep in mind is that in this great metropolis, there is room for all musical styles and genres.

The daily offer of live musical performances is immense, and whatever your musical taste, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a magical night of great music in Barcelona. Thus, in this post we bring you what, according to our criteria, are the most outstanding concerts in Barcelona during 2020.

Musical legends

During 2020, some of the world's greatest music legends will grace the stages of the top venues in Barcelona.

Starting with a tribute to one of the great Spanish artists of all time, Raphael, who will perform at one of the most classy and glamorous festival venues in Barcelona: the Jardins de Pedralbes Festival. The legendary singer will delight spectators with some of the hits of his decades-long musical career in a privileged setting on June 7, 2020.

Only a few days later, on June 17, one of the most important musical events of the year is scheduled to take place in the Catalan capital: this is a one-night only opportunity to hear renowned Beatle, Paul McCartney.

The Olympic Stadium in Barcelona is the venue chosen for McCartney's latest show in Spain. After three years’ absence, the former Beatle returns in style, following the launch of his latest album Egypt Station.

Already into autumn, on Saturday, October 3, the Palau Sant Jordi will host the irrepressible Elton John on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. A great show promising a musical journey through the hits of his musical career which spans half a century.

There are still tickets available to see these three legends, but you’d better hurry as they’re expected to sell out very shortly.

Pop icons

Barcelona will also be the scene for the concerts of some of today’s greatest pop music icons, both Latino stars and international talent. Maluma (March 28), Dua Lipa (April 28) and Camila Cabello (June 30), three of the singers who are currently hitting the headlines around the world, are sure to make Palau Sant Jordi vibrate in 2020.

Not to mention the stream of shows given by this country’s best-known artists over the year, including David Bisbal (May 15) and Dani Martín (October 31), both also in the Sant Jordi, and Manuel Carrasco (June 12) at the Sant Jordi Club.

Big festivals

Finally, 2020 is also a year for some amazing music festivals in Barcelona. Spring Sound 2020 will be held at the Parc del Fórum from June 3 to 7. One of the top festivals on the Spanish scene with both independent and chart-busting artists: Massive Attack, Lana del Rey, Iggy Pop, The National, The Strokes, Amaia, Bad Bunny, Tyler, The Creator are just some of the names on the line-up. Only two weeks later, from June 18 to 20 the Fira de Montjuic, will host Sonar 2020. Although the artists taking part have not yet been confirmed, the festival is a sure-fire winner year after year thanks to a unique format, combining artistic talent and technological innovation.

The offer of music in Barcelona is as eclectic as it is classy. When you visit, there are just two things you can’t afford to miss: enjoying a live musical performance and staying at the Pere Tarrés Youth Hostel, the best hostel in Barcelona.

5 traditional Catalonian festivals you simply cannot miss

5 traditional Catalonian festivals you simply cannot miss

To ensure an outstanding experience, you have to make sure your visit coincides with some of the typical celebrations or festivities in the region to get a real insight into traditional Catalonia.

Mind you, you don't have to worry too much. In Catalonia, there are celebrations taking place on a regular basis, practically every month of the year. In this post, we introduce you to the five top traditional Catalan festivals, which you should not miss for anything on earth.

Catalan national day (La diada de Cataluña)

La Diada is, perhaps, the most important festival in Barcelona and indeed in Catalonia. On September 11, the main cities in the region honour the fall of the local army before the Bourbon troops in 1714.

The celebration takes on special importance in the Catalan capital, which is filled with floral offerings. However, there is also plenty of room to party and celebrate and, in many parts of the great metropolis, in particular the Citadel Park, people attend concerts, poetry readings and other cultural activities.

Festivals (Festes Majors)

You can’t attempt to get an in-depth knowledge of Catalan culture without taking part in its Festes Majors. These are typical celebrations, especially in summer, where each town dresses up to celebrate its most popular festival, inevitably featuring the Correfocs and the Cercavila de Gegants. These are two major acts which are not to be missed.

In the Correfocs, els diables the devils, take to the streets armed with firecrackers and rockets, accompanied by a thumping batukada for a raucous street party.

No less showy are the Giants, or as they are known in Catalonia, Els Gegants. These are the great sculptures representing the city's patrons brought to life, who hit the streets to dance with the inhabitants. And let’s not forget the capgrossos, smaller sculpture representations that also dance merrily along to celebrate each town’s biggest festival.

The castles (Els castellers)

One of the most successful Catalan celebrations is, without a doubt, Els Castellers (castles), and frankly, this could not be anything less! This is a truly unique spectacle, named one of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage events in 2010, a once-in-a-lifetime chance to witness the spectacle of vast human towers rising slowly skywards, and see how the smallest scramble to the top.

Diades Castelleres are organized virtually every week in one or another town throughout the region. Of course, there is one in particular that stands out head-and-shoulders above the rest: the Diada de la Mercè, held during the celebration of Barcelona’s main festival (September), where the top Colles, or folk groups, from all of Catalonia congregate.

Flower festival (Temps de flors)

The most colorful festival in Catalonia takes place in Girona during the month of May: Temps de Flors. For two weeks, the city turns into a huge public garden, with all its buildings, streets and monuments decked out in garlands and floral displays. This is quite an unusual show, with a history dating back over 50 years, but one that has become very popular in recent years.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy the city of Girona, at a moment when all its main attractions are spruced up with colourful blooms.

Sant Joan’s night (Nit de Sant Joan)

Finally, one of the nights you should circle in red on your calendar is the Nit de Sant Joan. On the eve of June 23-24, coinciding with the summer solstice, the festival of San Juan fills all of Catalonia with bonfires, firecrackers and street parties, something which has also caught on in other locations in the Balearic Islands and the Valencian Community.

This is a night where concerts and festivals go on until the small hours, many ending up on the beach at dawn.

So don’t think twice, take advantage of your stay in the Pere Tarrés Barcelona hostel, where we will be delighted to fill you in about all the main celebrations taking place during your visit to the city and how to get there for an unforgettable experience.

Barcelona’s Weirdest Stores: More Than Just the Geek Triangle

Barcelona’s Weirdest Stores: More Than Just the Geek Triangle

When we think of specialty stores, the famous Geek Triangle of Barcelona comes to mind. It’s the best place in the city for fans of science fiction, such as tv like Star Wars, Star Trek, Dragon Ball Z, and anime, as well as video games, comic books, and role-playing games,

However, there’s an increasing number of other activities and specialty stores popping up in the Catalan capital, which also fall under the geek umbrella, such as scale models, model making, and magic.

Galeries Maldà

As we mentioned, one of the best areas in Barcelona for fantasy fans is the Geek Triangle. It's located in the zone which encompasses Passeig de Sant Joan, Ronda de Sant Pere, and Arc de Triomf.

However, over the last few years, another area full of fantasy stores has also become very fashionable. Colloquially it's known as the Geek Camden, and it's situated inside the Galeries Maldá in the heart of Barcelona.

The space was previously vacant and has now become a fascinating corner where you can find all kinds of stores: shops inspired by different tv series; magical spaces; and even a geek supermarket!

Many Barcelona geek stores are thematic and focus on some of the most significant tv and movie franchises, such as Harry Potter or Game of Thrones, and others offer wares aimed at other audiences or people with really specialised interests.

You can find stores such as the Costurero Real, a space which sells clothing, jewellery, and accessories inspired by the fantasy world; or Magic Cube, a store where you can find the city's largest offering of Rubik's Cubes, ranging in difficulty so that you can really test your skills.

Finally, you can't pass through this area without visiting the Super Friki Market. This is the first geek supermarket in Spain, where you're sure to make the most unique purchase of your life. Among other things, there are bottles of Valyrian Fire for fans of Game of Thrones, or Duff beers for those who can repeat any Simpsons episode by heart.

Specialty Stores in Barcelona: Other Hobbies

Barcelona also has a large variety of stores that you're sure to be amazed by, based around hobbies like magic.

In the city centre, you can find the Selecciones Mágicas store, one of the oldest magic stores in Europe. You'll be astounded by the huge number of magic tricks that exist, and, if you're passionate about magic, you can also visit Magicus nearby which, as well as its wide range of products, also offers courses in magic.

On the other hand, if you're more into model making, don't miss out on the opportunity to visit Hobby Models in calle de Galileu, in the Sants neighbourhood. This is a model store where you can find models of all kinds: antique toys, boats, paintings, etc.

We're all weird in our own way; different strokes for different folks! So, don't miss out on your chance to experience something special.

Make the most of your visit to the Catalan capital with accommodation at the Barcelona Pere Tarrés Youth Hostel, and find some real adventure in this magical city!

5 Reasons to Visit Park Güell

5 Reasons to Visit Park Güell

Park Güell is, without a doubt, one of the key landmarks in Barcelona. A huge outdoor space full of modernist architectural elements, created by renowned architect Antoni Gaudí.

The park owes its name to Eusebi Güell, a rich businessman who was passionate about Gaudí's works and commissioned him to design the park.

Although the original idea was to construct a luxury residential complex, this was abandoned over the years, and a fairy-tale park was built in its place.

No visit to Barcelona is complete without a stroll through Park Güell, discovering all there is to see there.

Gaudí, Gaudí, and more Gaudí

Although the Sagrada Familia, Casa Milà, and Casa Batlló are regarded as his most eminent works, Park Güell is not far behind. Gaudí's modernist style is displayed in both the park's design and its sculptures, which are the main attraction for visitors to Park Güell.

Don't miss out on this special place; the way that nature and architecture coexist in perfect harmony will blow your mind!

We recommend seeing some of Gaudí's most famous works in the park, such as the pavilions, the stairway and the dragon, the Gaudí House Museum, the square with the serpentine bench, the Algarrobo Viaduct, and the Monumento al Calvario.

Pro tip: You need to spend at least a couple of hours in Park Güell to truly discover all of Gaudí’s architectural elements.

The View from Park Güell

Yes, it's true that Park Güell is a little outside the centre — and more touristy area — of Barcelona. However, that also gives it an important advantage: the view.

The park is situated in the neighbourhood of Carmel, where you can find incredible views of Barcelona's rooftops. A panoramic view, different to what you’ll find at any of the city's more typical viewpoints, which allows you to enjoy the Catalan capital from an aerial perspective.

The Music

Many musicians gather at Park Güell during the day, so you can find a different melody around each corner. Let yourself get swept along by the siren calls, taking you from place to place around the park. 

The Relative Tranquillity

Park Güell has a large influx of tourists, sure, but there's no need to get overwhelmed; most of them stay close to the entrance or hang around near the serpentine benches.

So, we encourage you to delve a little deeper into the park and find places where you can't hear a sound, where you can sit and enjoy some peace and quiet in an extraordinary setting.

World Heritage

Park Güell, one of Barcelona's main attractions, was declared a World Heritage Site in 1984.

If the experts at the United Nations have classified the park as a site with great cultural relevance and exceptional character for the common heritage of humanity, how can you possibly resist spending a morning there discovering all its secrets and marvelling at its charm?

However, not everything can be seen at the park; Barcelona has many more unmissable tourist attractions, also created by the famous architect.

Make the most of your visit to the Catalan capital with accommodation at the Barcelona Pere Tarrés Youth Hostel, and don't hesitate to check out this prime example of Gaudí modernism.
