The city of Barcelona is full to its outer edges with top notch restaurants and eateries. You can get yourself a meal of anything, from tapas to paella, escalivada to esqueixada. And it’s not only local dishes that are available. Being a modern cosmopolitan city, influences from many other parts of the world have found their way into Barcelona as well, and in some part of it, you can find yourself pretty much anything from anywhere, all with its own Catalan twist. And hamburgers are no different. The local chefs have taken this originally German snack and added their own unique Mediterranean style, and there are scores of places where you’ll find them popping up on the menu.
