Barcelona is known for its rich culinary offerings, and I recently discovered a real treasure in Barceloneta: Pasa Tapas. This charming restaurant has quickly become one of my top recommendations for those who want to enjoy delicious grilled food in a cozy and vibrant atmosphere.

The charm of charcoal-grilled food: healthy and full of flavor

Grilled food has a special place in my heart and on my palate. The technique of cooking over charcoal or wood coals gives food a unique, smoky flavor that simply cannot be replicated any other way. But beyond the unparalleled flavor, grilled food also offers health benefits.

At Pasa Tapas, I was able to discover how the ember becomes a culinary tool that brings out the quality and freshness of the ingredients. The food is slow-cooked, allowing the juices to be preserved and the flavors to intensify without the need to add additional fats. The result is a healthy and tasty culinary experience, perfect for those who want to take care of their well-being without sacrificing taste.

History and traditions of calçots in Barcelona

To talk about Barcelona's culinary history and traditions without mentioning calçots would be a culinary sin. These delicious and tender onion sprouts tend to be a delicacy in the winter and spring season. The tradition of calcots goes back more than a century, and at Pasa Tapas, they have the honor of honoring this ancient practice.

At Pasa Tapas, you can experience the authentic way to enjoy calçots. These tender sprouts are carefully grown and grilled until tender and slightly charred on the outside. They are then served on a hot grill accompanied by a delicious romesco sauce, made with tomatoes, ñoras, almonds and olive oil.
