Barcelona and tapas might not be a traditionally happy relationship, but the locals are in love with La Pepita’s little dishes.

The trendy barrio of Gracia is probably unlike anywhere else in Barcelona. Small wonder really, because it was once an independent town and even today the locals still refer to their home as Gracia and not Barcelona. It has a real bohemian village feel to it, which has attracted many artists and artisans to live there.

Tucked away on the Carrer Còrsega, not far from Gracia’s pretty Plaça del Sol, La Pepita with its arty walls, mirrors, and huge lamps, is one of the most popular restaurants in the barrio. Run by owners Sofia and Sergio, their homemade take on modern tapas dishes is legendary throughout Gracia. The pepita is actually a pumpkin seed, and whilst there are some wonderful creations using pumpkin, in particular their version of gazpacho, you will simply have to try their chicken croquettes, the patatas bravas and salted cod with black tomatoes.
