It's nice, good, and as for cheap, they serve an excellent menu of the day for 16 euros (with two first, second, dessert and drink) so judge for yourself.
IF YOU KNOW THAT VANGUARD AND RESPECT FOR THE MIDDLE MUST GO HAND
Greenhouse (Bergara 8). The renovated restaurant of the Pulitzer Hotel has become, with its well-lit nursery spirit, in one of the most beautiful and pleasant places in the center of Barcelona.
The cuisine emphasizes seasonal vegetables, artisan desserts (eye to churro), the product of proximity and as far as possible, kilometer zero, all washed down with a very Anglo-Saxon air (the hand of the Australian chef Damien Bolger) that shows in the taste for tubers, the treatment of vegetables and the presence of appetizer delights like butter with maple syrup.
Its inner courtyard gives it even more urban air. They have several noon menu options (€ 18.50 if complete, € 16 the water menu + wine glass + 2 dishes + coffee or € 12 the Water Express + 1 glass of wine + main) and at night they offer a menu tasting (60 euros) or letter to the diner's taste.

IF YOU ARE A GOURMET WITHOUT TONTERIES
Pork and Tuna (Passeig de Garcia Fària 81). You really like good things and little posturing, so this "gastronomic space" bears your name. A mix of delicatessen with an impressive cellar (let yourself be advised because they know what they have in hand) and restaurant, it is as casual as it would be (which are just a step away from the beach), and shows that it can be done Apology of the good product from modernity and simplicity.
In the menu they have sausages, snacks, cocas, contemporary dishes such as tuna nikkei, pork bellyor the essential octopus, but the midday formula highlights its bowls (quesloquesellevahora) as photogenic as they are delicious, to be prepared according to the diner's taste among a wide assortment of cereals, sprouts, proteins, vegetables, fruits and side dishes. To leave more than satisfied and want to take half a store.
IF YOU ARE AN UNDERSTANDING ASS AND YOU BECOME FAST OF THE THINGS (AND YOU HATE THE ROUTINE)
Van van bar (Pujades 27). Here is the perfect place for you: the restaurant in which the letter changes week by week thanks to its policy of “Guest food trucks”. The drama of the food truck It was precisely that they cannot be installed where they want but depend on very specific fairs and events to get to work, so you had to be attentive to the calendar to have the favorites located.
In this lOral of Poble Nou those responsible for Van van market (one of, of course, more successful food truck events) goes around the idea by offering a chef from food truck the opportunity to serve your creations in a local to use. They have a fixed canning and vermouth letter but the bulkThat is the idea, it varies week by week, so it is best to approach to discover it for yourself.

IF YOU ARE BACK OF EVERYTHING
Dirty South (Bruc 46). The "when you go I come from there" Chenoa possesses you, and to the new fashions and trends you respond with a gesture of sufficiency and a "I already knew that in London / Bangkok / Kathmandu" And as in gastronomy the frenzy of fashion is even more accelerated than in other fields, you think that nothing can surprise you anymore.
We tempt luck by proposing something that - just maybe - you have not been bored of taking: Cajun food. Dirty South offers typical dishes from the southern United States (this is fried green tomatoes, gumbo, po'boy or jambalaya) and deadlift cocktails. During the day they work as a kind of brunch that mixes the scallops with the eggs Benedict, and dinner at night they are something like a party. And hey, if you had already enjoyed Southern cuisine, you can always discover it to someone and presume that it is not yet as massive as ramen or buns

IF YOU HAVE THE SPIRIT OF A LORD OR A LADY DRESSED BY THE FEET
Leopoldo House (Sant Rafael 24). No matter how old your card is; you have always had a timeless spirit that allows you to look with a certain condescension “The things that young people do” and in general, you are a supporter of few nonsense, a lover of bluntness and a firm believer that the usual things are the best.
In this, little competition has the historical Casa Leopoldo, opened in 1929, closed in 2005 and happily reopened by the hand of a new team with the aim of recovering old recipes without any patina of rancidity.
This includes a cap i pota, rAbo de Toro and a Catalan cream capable of convincing even its less enthusiastic. further They offer a menu - at noon and night - of first, second, desserts, coffee and drinks for 32.95 to break down any mental border of reparation and some reverential respect that can be had before the name of the institution venerated by Vázquez Montalbán. It is a restaurant, here you come to eat and neither the price nor the legend are border.

IF YOU HAVE NO PREJUDICE AND YES LOVE FOR THE FLAVOR
Goiko Grill (Passeig de Sant Joan 58 and Aribau 113). We know that some of your gourmet friends will wrinkle your nose at your proposal: a chain hamburger? Have we lost our mind or what? Maybe, but before they get their hands on their heads, they should know that Goiko has fans on even among some small-scale product makers and approach you to try some of their addictive reetas that have already conquered each city in the one they open
In Barcelona they are newcomers in full expansion (surely you have already tried them on a trip), and it is surprising to see how the discourse of Spanish meat minced daily and not frozen, the fresh product and within what fits, of proximity , it translates for once in a delicious result. The Kevin Bacon Burger (with meat stuffed with pieces of bacon that would put Homer to salivate) is the one that has more followers, although here we are left with chipotle. Their menu of the day for 11.50 is the best excuse to try them.
IF JAPAN DOES A LOT THAT FOR YOU STOPPED ONLY SUSHI
Homosibaris Izakaya (Cicero 9, Sants). Of the union of Homosibar brewing expertsis and of good to do in Japanese cuisine of La Cuina de l'Uribou an implacable formula is born in Sants that flees from the most beaten paths: beer shooters and kushiage.
The craft beer may have more control, but just in case we clarify that kushiages they are a kind of japanese skewers which can be simple and delicious meat or fish; Try the suckling pig, a sinful delight. In this Informal and cozy izakaya also serve good yakisoba or currys dishes and include options vegetarian options. Well priced, cool and with palpable love for what they do.

IF YOU ARE FANTASIOUS AND YOU LIKE TO RIDE YOUR HISTORIES (AND THAT THEY TELL YOU)
The bullet (Aribau 137). Large murals by Sergio Mora and 1300 meters of cable adorn the walls telling the story of the man Bala, a kind of alter ego of the owner of this restaurant of healthy and Mediterranean food as colorful as it is pleasant.
Dishes with vegetable primacy but also love for grilled meat or fish, being careful to offer options for vegetarians, celiac or lactose intolerant and that offer the opportunity to try almost unique ingredients such as castanyer gargoyle (a powerful type of mushroom that is being reintroduced in the Montseny) while also giving a special touch to other more classic things such as spiced coca or Tasty and delicious pork belly.
The wine list varies every month and a half prepared by a guest to make sommelier. At noon they offer a menu of 3 items served on the same plate (in the style, for example, of nearby Mostassa), to choose from 9 options, for 14 euros and also have different tasting menu options. The idea is that each diner can find an option that makes him happy, that will be sitting at a table, right?
