LOCATION 16 | A Culinary Tour of El Born
Right onto Carrer de la Vidrieria
Take a right here and keep going.
We are on our way to Cal Pep. An institution in these parts, loved by the locals before tourists discovered Barcelona. Pep for whom it's named is no longer there sadly.
The best seats are in the front at the bar looking into the kitchen at the chefs preparing the food. The menu changes constantly using what looks best that day. The concept has been much copied, including by the venerated Barrafina restaurants opened by the Hart brothers in London. Cal Pep doesn't take reservations so get here early and wait for the shutters to go up. Or else line up with the rest, get a drink and preview the dishes you will be eating soon.
Continue walking. I'll let you know when we get there.
