Paco Meralgo

To say that the city of Barcelona is all about food and drink is a careless understatement. Unlike cities like Paris or London where affordable and good food is a rare gem, Barcelona sets out to fill your tummy without emptying your wallet. I was skeptical of that theory when I walked into Paco Meralgo. Recommended by my foodie friend, Sarah, I expected the food to be awesome but I was also prepared to pay a pretty penny for it.

The decor of the restaurant is simple, clean and yet tasteful. They have an upstairs dining area for larger parties – equipped with a long wooden table and short wooden chairs that look like they were plucked out of the Seven Dwarfs’ home. The wait staff is extremely friendly and patient – things do get busy and rowdy after 8pm, which is when the Spanish start getting hungry, like New Yorkers.

My favorite thing we ate was actually the tomato bread. They couldn’t have made a simple dish more delicious.

It’s a definitely must visit if you should go to Barcelona. The bill for about 7 of us (and mind you we ordered a lot of food + wine) came out to about €280.
