The Infatuation

This is some of the best food you can find in Barcelona, period. La Cova Fumada is in the aforementioned Barceloneta, situated among many other tiny, signless places. Their claim to fame is that they invented the bomba, so get one of those, as well as the tiny tallerines, which could best be describe as “clams for ants.” Note that they have wacky hours, as most tapas places do, so this is another one where you’ll want to make sure you check first.

One of the oldest restaurants in the beachside neighborhood of La Barceloneta, this is the birthplace of the famous “bomba de la Barceloneta” — a mouth­watering fried mashed-potato croquette, stuffed with savory ground beef and topped with aioli and hot sauce, which now appears on menus all over the city. In addition to the bombas, try the calamars a la planxa (grilled squid) and grilled sardines (in season in summer). If you’re adventurous, add a plate of Cap i Pota, an old-­school Catalan stew of tripe, veal trotters, and veal head in tomato. [$$]
