We Ate The Most Iconic Foods in Barcelona On A $50 Budget


Narrator: If you want a food
scene with bombs, fires, and out-of-this-world flavors, I have just the place for you. You might be familiar
with Spanish dishes like jamón and paella, but we’re in Barcelona, and this city has its own food culture. I have $50, or 44 euros, and I’m on a mission to
try the local flavors in one day, without breaking my budget. One of Barcelona’s signature
dishes is la bomba, a potato and meat croquette topped with garlic aioli and romesco sauce. It was invented by Maria
Pia more than 60 years ago, and her secret recipe has been passed down at her family’s tapas bar, La Cova Fumada. Narrator: Josep Maria
Sole is Maria’s grandson, and sells about 250 bombas a day. Narrator: Other tasty and popular items at La Cova Fumada include
octopus and artichokes. And part of La Cova Fumada’s
charm is the good company, Joaquin, Felix, and the local patrons. After lunch it was hard to leave them, but there was more food to try,
and I’d spent only 12 euros. A trip to Barcelona isn’t
complete without a visit to La Boqueria, and this market’s
been around for centuries. It’s a maze of jamón, nuts,
seafood, and produce stalls, which led me to this cup of
fruit for just two euros. Spain is the world’s third
largest wine-producing country, so of course I had to try some. Vila Viniteca sells and
distributes more than 3,000 varieties of wine and distillations
from around the world, but just one place in the
world makes the sparkling wine Cava, and that’s Catalonia,
the Spanish region I’m in. – You can find different
profiles inside the cava style. Narrator: Gonzalo Fernandez
is the Vila Viniteca’s sommelier. – You can find young cava. It’s very crispy and fruit-forward. Or you can find aged cava. More complexity, teeny bubbles. – To Barcelona! Narrator: Our toast with a
medium-aged Cava was dry, a little fruity, and surprisingly
just four euros a glass. My big splurge was dinner
at Racó de la Vila. Spain’s Catalonia and
Valencia regions make a dish similar to paella called fideuà, and pasta, not rice,
is the main ingredient. Peppers, cuttlefish, crayfish,
shrimp and mussels are added. Stock, and then into the
oven for the flavors to bake together into a truly delicious dish. The restaurant serves other
traditional Catalan dishes like calçots, pan con
tomate, and crema catalana. This sweet treat might
look like crème brûlée, but it has two important distinctions. The crema is cooked with
lemon peel and cinnamon, and it gets its caramelized
crust from a hot iron. These two things combined
made it impossible for me to put my spoon down. But I dropped 25 euros on just the fideuà and crema catalana. After a full day of feasting in Barcelona I spending 43 out of 44 euros. The fideuà was 19 euros and took a big bite out of my budget. But it’s meant to feed a crowd
and the price reflects that. Barcelona was a lot more wallet-friendly than I would have guessed for
a major tourist destination. So I give it a 10 out of 10. It was worth every dollar
and delicious bite.

  1. They should do a video one of these days that include the expenses that it takes to get to each of the locations. What's the use of spending $50.00 on food if you spend twice as much traveling to each place. Just saying 🤷‍♀️

  2. …50$ could be spent on way more food… that you actually have to cook…without all that expensive Iconic foods??..really should cater to us regular folks??…for shame!!

  3. Well if you think about it if you spent 50 dollars every day on food you would be spending 18250 dollars on food alone in just one year not counting taxes

  4. I thought the guy talking really wierd when he was talking about the bomba then I realised he was speaking catalan not spanish I felt like the biggest idiot

  5. No one realised the mistake about cava?? Minute 2.00. Cava can be made in different places in Spain. Is the only DO (probably in the world) not limited to an specific area.

  6. U can get a great meal in El Xampanyet for €50….. Been to Barcelona & Madrid twice & their food is not only delicious but really excellent value for money
