Five Delicious Barcelona Snacks that are Easy to Make at Home

April 05, 2020
When you think of Barcelona, you just think of flavor. The flavor of the stunning architecture that makes up the beauty of the city. The flavor of the passion upon which made the city an artistic epicenter for many years now. The flavor of love that you couldn't help but feel when you're here; pure romanticism. And most probably, the actual flavors of their food will be worthwhile too. Unfortunately, you can't taste them from home, can't you? Wrong! A lot of what they eat at this Catalan capital can be easily made right there in your own kitchen. Ready to take your taste buds on a trip to Barcelona?

Bocadillos

Do you know what makes Bocadillos worthwhile? They're easy to make but taste so good. You'd think that something so simple as a baguette sandwich wouldn't taste all that much bit does. The length just makes it longer for you to eat it all up and savor every minute. But what is inside a bocadillos sandwich that separates it from your ordinary sandwich? Is it your choice of meat? Nope! The salad-like melody of different vegetables. Maybe! The four incredible rich and mouth-water sauces that create quite an interplay of flavors in your mouth? Bingo!

Bombas

War is never a great thing to remember. However, trust the Spanish to turn one of the most violent periods in their history, the Spanish Civil War, into a savory treat. During this conflict, bombs were thrown practically everywhere, killing and injuring many. Yet, it's those same bombs that inspired the creation of the 'Bombas'. Rolled up potato croquettes served with two rich sauces that truly explode into your mouth. The white garlic sauce keeps your taste buds in check while the red spicy one tantalizes them into quite the sensation. The inspiration would have been inappropriate had the snack not taste so good.

Croquettas

These aren't your ordinary tater tots! The people of Barcelona won't have you saying such sacrilege! Croquettas is far richer than the normal croquettes you do at home. The meat used here, for instance, whether it's chicken or Iberico ham, allows to really drive in the savoriness without taking too much away from the crunchy potatoes shell. And the melted cheese inside? Heavenly! It provides a lightness that simply completes the meal. With every bite, you'd want to taste everything: the meat, the cheese, and of course, the potato crust. Imagine all those flavors and textures all mixed together! Delicious, isn't it?

Esqueixada

Apart from the Bocadillos, the Esqueixada is probably the second easiest snack to make on this list. Why? Because it's just a salad. And like any other of its kind, you simply get some fresh vegetables, chop 'em all up, and mix together in a bowl and you're done! However, as you may have already realized by now, Barcelonians aren't that simple with their food. Of course, they're going to have a little something extra to give it the Catalan kick that their food is known for. So what is it this time? A “Bacalao," or raw salted cod. A little bit of fish to really reel in the scintillating saltiness!

Patatas Bravas

Potato wedges. Barcelona's 'Patatas Bravas' are simply potato wedges. But are they ordinary potato wedges? Of course not! For one thing, you fry them in a way to really get that golden brown extra golden. Season them just right for taste and they're practically good to go. But, as per usual, Catalonians aren't that simple when it comes to their food. The magic of this snack is in the sauce. Not because it has a special ingredient or anything. But because, similarly to Bocadillos, Patatas Bravas also make use of four savory sauces mixed together. It's always a party in your mouth with these Barcelonian snacks!
