Can Culleteres is Barcelona’s oldest restaurant. Founded in 1786, it’s in fact Spain’s second oldest restaurant – and it’s still popular for a very good reason: the food is divine. Not in the Michelin-starred ‘oh-how-fancy-is-this’ kinda way, no, Can Culleretes serves proper traditional Catalan home fare. The food here tastes like it should. Robust flavours dominate the menu. If you want to try a proper Catalan dish, opt for the Botifarra amb mongetes – a garlicky sausage served with broad beans. Whatever you choose, make sure to go for a Crema Catalana for dessert. This eggy crème brûlée-style pudding is a real treat here.
