La Paradeta, a seafood self-service in Barcelona
La Paradeta (the little stall) refers to the traditional market stalls that are still alive in most ofthe Barcelona’s markets. There, people can buy fresh fish and seafood to take home. In mostcases, the products are incredible fresh and very tasty!
However, La Paradeta is slightly different, as it is in half way between being a stall and arestaurant. Actually, the customers can choose which fish or seafood they want among all thepieces exposed in a full-of-ice showcase. Then, a cooker cooks the pieces and returns to the customers, the delicious dish, ready to be eating comfortably in the restaurant’s tables. As yousee, this original idea has the economic benefits of a shop and the comfort’s advantages of arestaurant.
There are up to 4 La Paradeta’s sites in Barcelona and 1 in a close town. In the city, youcan find La Paradeta in the district of Sants (Riego Street, 27); El Born (Comercial Street, 7);Meridiana (Pacific Street, 74) and Sagrada Família (Simón Passage, 18).
You can also find La Paradeta in the coastal town of Sitges, a beautiful and fairy-tale placecomposed by lovely white houses facing the Mediterranean Sea. In Sitges, just reach Sant PereStreet, 24, and get ready to delight the treasures of the sea.
Renting a luxury holiday apartment in Barcelona, you will have at your disposal a kitchen tocook your meals always you desire it. However, we know that during your holidays, it is notthe same to go out in a restaurant than staying at your short term flat, preparing your meals. However, if you fancy having some time for you, some privacy and freedom, you can stay atyour top rent apartment in Barcelona and cook the fish or seafood you have previously boughtin La Boqueria Market, for example.
Either way, you can’t leave Barcelona without trying its outstanding fish and seafood, fished inthe Mediterranean Sea. All the freshness and quality of this magic sea, in your table!
