Cala Blanca near the Rambla of Poblenou is the perfect daily restaurant we are looking for in Barcelona.
The idea is to find a full menu under 12 euros for lunch.
At Cala Blanca menu is around 11,25€ with wine, like many others but the surprise is coming from the quality of the meal...
It's just perfect: a typical Catalan cooking with a wide range of dishes made from market products of the day. But that would not be enough for us to recommend this place to you. Here the chef is just perfectly inspired, there is always a detail telling you that this guy likes to cook and likes to please the clients.
It's surprisingly simple, fresh, tasty for the price...Such a delight that Barcelona.com's team is going there almost everyday: happy to have found a canteen.. We are not the only one, at 1pm it's full of working but epicurean locals.
Ask for the terrace if you book. Not a place for the evening as it is oftenly quite empty and a bit sad..
For dinner pricing is different: you'll find two degustation menus: one at 20 and the other one at 25€.
