The art of "tapear" is a widespread practice in Barcelona. Octopuses, ham, croquettes ... and "patatas bravas", the traditional bravas of bars and restaurants, prepared with secret recipes, which are always served with a special sauce. Let's find out where to eat the best patatas bravas in the city of Barcelona.

Bar TomásSure there are bars, both new and old, that offer excellent patatas bravas and are not known. Let's start with a classic. The local par excellence when we talk about this delicacy, we place it in the upper area, in Sarrià, in a bar that triumphs for its bravas at all hours. Bar Tomás is a place of pilgrimage for those who want to enjoy with their potatoes. Their recipe is a secret, and there are those who say that success is due to their sauce, which they do artisanly in the local. Juicy, tender, elongated, well cooked ... the potato rations are generous and everyone repeat.

The bar is simple and modest, as it has no more pretensions than welcoming people from everywhere to tapear. It is not easy to find a place, so it is recommended to go early, sit, not move, taste and spend the day in this area.

We now move to Mandri Street. Here there are designer bars and we find the Monstesquiu, in which they offer patatas bravas with an excellent fry. Its sauce is reminiscent of the famous Espinaler, although it is not the same. You can also order bravas with a little all i oli. The bar also opens at vermouth time, so it is usually full at different hours. The bravas deserve some waiting.

From traditional to bravas with Michelin star. The Arola restaurant, by chef Sergi Arola, located on the terrace of the famous Hotel Arts, offers rather different patatas bravas. The recipe is not new, in fact, it is already one of the main dishes in his kitchen. They are round, cylindrical, with bark and tender. The chef finishes with a sauce (all i oli style) above. The bravas are good, a bit expensive, and the magnificent ambience of the terrace of this luxury place, accompanies it. In addition now, every Sunday, the Arola restaurant proposes to rescue the vermouth tradition, with excellent brands of drink and author cocktails to accompany the bravas.

Roca BarAnd of innovation, but keeping that flavor that identifies the real bravas, are those of the Roca Bar, the Roca brothers, and at the Hotel Omm. Originals are, in the form of great waffles and the sauces are put on top. The taste is a bit oily but they can stand out in the bravas circuit of Barcelona.

 

 

Casa de Tapes CañotaThe Casa de Tapes Cañota, by brothers Iglesias, offers traditional tapas with specialties of the sea. And, of course, we have to be attentive to the bravas, which are strongly popular in the city. Here the patatas bravas are a kind of fusion of traditional potatoes al caliu with the sauce of its partner Albert Adrià. An excellent combination.

 

 

 

Bodega MonteferryVisiting Barcelona, we find a lot of types of patatas bravas in different rations that always satiate our appetite. In this case, we highlight bodega Montferry, in the Sants quarter, where their sandwiches are fantastic, and what interests us, the bravas, too. They are cut like french fires potatoes, in large size, and with skin (something like Tomás). The sauce is of tomato and a bit spicy. Cheap prices and good atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

Senyor VermutWhen it comes to eating wild potatoes you have to it's better to play safe. If Bar Tomas is full, then we will choose Senyor Vermut. In the Eixample, they offer a variety of tapas and some bravas with a very strong all i oli and hot spicy sauce. The beer will run without stopping.
