If you are hankering for a burger don’t even think about handing over your money to those clowns at McDonalds!! Instead hunt down La Castanya in the Gothic quarter where you will pay relatively the same price but get a more wholesome, delicious and ¨real¨ feed.
While you eagerly await your meal, have a seat at one of their paper-covered tables and create a masterpiece with the supplied crayons.
Burgers come in chicken (from 6.80€), pork (from 7.50€), veal (from 6.60€), cured ham and vegetarian patties (6.00€). The rest of the ingredients are as diverse as peach barbeque sauce with smoked bacon to aubergine and cream cheese. With a lengthy section of the menu dedicated to all of the extras that you can add to make the meal exactly how you like it how can you go wrong?!
Wholewheat bread and salads also grace the menu and you can get some rustic fried wedges to accompany it.

Pick up a copy of a local newspaper or do some people watching during the short wait for your much anticipated meal.
Once served, the friendly staff will offer sachets of mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup for you to add yourself if you so feel.

Hola! My name is Becky. I´m yet another Australian expat who fell for the beautiful mistress we like to call Barcelona and stayed far, far longer than once intended. I throw myself into the cities events, bars, clubs, shops etc, with reckless abandon to bring you these reviews. It´s all for you! ...Or is it just an excuse to party and spend lots of money without feeling guilty?... Either way, read up on some of my favorite ways to see this exciting and eclectic city. Happy travels and welcome to BCN!
