The gastronomic challenge in Barcelona

The gastronomic challenge
Written by Paula

Barcelona is a city that unites a great deal of people from all corners of the world. This wonderful mix of cultures brings about fantastic art, music, traditions and gastronomy.

Today, ShBarcelona is focusing on the belly-filling side of this cultural bonanza, and daring all readers to take their visit to Barcelona as an opportunity to try dishes from as many countries as possible! We are daring you to create a food passport, a.k.a “foodsaport” where you will write down every country you “visit” through your gastronomic experience.
