The following guide will mention my favorite spots for food and activities in Barcelona.
1. ROBATA: delicious Japanese-grilled cuisine that has one of the best sushi varieties AND the most mouthwatering desserts on earth. Their warm XL chocolate cake with ice cream is to die for….
My favorite rolls are: FRISKY, SPICY TUNA, UNICORNIO AND REDONDO BEACH.

2. PARCO: a classic Japanese restaurant serving the best flamed nigiris, I swear, the combination of the fish, rice and special dressing placed makes them by far the best nigiris you can get!
My favorite rolls are: flamed nigiris (salmon and shrimp), butterfish nigiri, eal nigiri. Hot rolls (salmon, spicy shrimp and avocado with eal roll).
3. CAMPING MAR: A new restaurant belonging to the family of EN COMPAÑIA DE LOBOS. We enjoyed a beautiful meal near the Barceloneta beach. My favorite dish was the black rice with scallops and artichokes.

I recommend walking beside the Barceloneta beach and enjoying the sea breeze and smell. Also, eating a tasty ice cream in Surf House Barcelona. Other ice cream options are Delacrem & Parallelo.
4. RUN IN CARRETERA DE LAS AGUAS: if you know me well, you would know that I have a passion for delicious breakfast (of course, my detox green juice) prior to a morning run. I Barcelona, I usually run in the beautiful mountain pathway.
Last week I ran 5 km and then gave a beautiful slow flow vinyasa yoga class. For more information about private yoga classes don’t hesitate to contact me, you can also book classes through this platform. Click here: https://bcnmetropole.com/yoga-the-key-to-my-smile-serenity-positivity/
After a month, I took a train back home to Barcelona. Lockdown got lifted, restaurants reopen at night again and the city is shinning again!
My weekend started with a beautiful lunch with my mom in Café Turo and then had drinks in Hotel Alma’s garden. We enjoyed dinner with my dad in PARCO where I enjoyed a delicious butterfish with truffle nigiris and glazed cod fish with a sweet dressing. The next day we sailed to the Costa Brava and ate “lubina a la sal”, white fish covered with thick salt in CAN PINI.
Some delicious desserts I had in my trip were the vegan desserts from Green&Berry and the explosive cookies from Sil’s Cakes.
I ended my trip in one of the oldest, most authentic and traditional Japanese restaurants in Barcelona: YASHIMA.
