FAVORITE BARCELONA FOOD STORES FOR FOODIES
These are some great Barcelona food stores you must check out:
A great specialty store totally dedicated to ham and pork products. It’s owner is Manuel Lopez, probably the top expert in jamón in Spain. You can’t go wrong getting your jabugo and bellota there. They cut their hams by hand and will let you try before buying. BTW did you know we have a post about the different varieties of Spanish ham?
Concept cakes and design chocolate for the most exigent palates. He’s a world-renowned chocolatier that will also surprise you with his exclusive cake designs. Aside from his flagship store in the up-skilled uptown district, he has recently opened a hot chocolate café in the Born district where you can also try some of his chocolates.
Probably the best wine store in Barcelona and another of the Barcelona gourmet favorites. Local whites, rosés, reds and sparkling, and a great selection of wines and spirits from all over the world. They also own a deli across the street that is worth visiting, where you can also enjoy a light meal (fresh salads, charcuterie and cheese, of course, paired with some great but affordable wines by the glass).
AND BONUS! Where to get pure virgin olive oil:
Located in the heart of the Old Town, this shop specializes in Spanish Extra Virgin Olive oil. They’ll be glad to assess you choosing the best type of olive for your palate and the use you want to give to it (we are absolute fans of the bitter arbequina). They also often have 3 oils of the day ready for tasting: don’t be shy and dip a piece of bread in the oil dishes to decide which one you like the most! They also have an assortment of small gift bottles and also cosmetics made with olive oil.
