Inside the Santa Caterina Market, one of the less touristic food market in Barcelona, is Cuines Sta Caterina.  Yes, it appears slightly touristic at a glance,  but don’t let that keep you away.  It is a quality restaurant with real food, outdoor dining and a few different ways to eat; from standard tables to styled dining bars.

When planing our visit to Barcelona, were a bit disheartened to miss the Calçot season  (November – April).  This is one of the joys of the Catalan countryside.  We were very lucky to find the end of the harvest at Cuines Sta Caterina.

Calçots are a type of spring onions unique  to Cataluña, and traditionally they are grilled on high fire, wrapped up in news paper and then served on upside down terracotta tiles.  One eats them by completely peeling the the outer charred layer and generously dipping the onion in romesco sauce, it gets a bit messy but, my god is it really worth it!

If for nothing else, we will forever be in debt to Cuines Sta Caterina for allowing us this whet our appetite for this amazing culinary experience!
