Mercat de La Boqueria is a place that you should never miss when visiting Barcelona. This is like common sense for most people. Before I came to Spain, everyone has been telling me how amazing this market is. Surprisingly, it is actually very easy to find as it is on La Rambla, very near to the central of Barcelona - Plaça de Catalunya.

By walking from Plaça de Catalunya to the coast along La Rambla, on your right you will first see Burger King, Amorino Gelato, La Poma, Carrefore and many other hotels and touristics venders and restuarants. Once you see Starbucks, for another 2 minutes walk, you should see a tiny restaurant called Wok to Walk. That will be the side entrance of La boqueria. Or you can walk 1 minute more to the direction of the coast and enter the market through  the main entrance with Dunkin Donuts on the side.

Warning: it is veryvery touristy at the main entrance and BEWARE OF PICK-POCKETS as the market is rather crowed.

It is a fascinating experience to walk around La boqueria because it is so huge. As I have been going round and round the market for zillion times after I start staying in Barcelona, I have figured out some short cuts for visitor who are in a rush but wish to do the most in limited time to search for what they want.

IF YOU WANT THE CHEAPEST DELICIOUS FRESH JUICE, fruit venders located between the main entrance and the side entrance near "Wok to Walk" sell their juices for 1 euros only.  As you go further in the market, they start selling for 1.5 euros or more.

They normally offer a wide variety of choices and no additional sugar is added. My favourite one is "Mango y Coco" (Mango and coconut).

IF YOU WANT GOOD SEAFOOD, I would recommand you try "Kiosko Universal" near the side entrance at the far left. For more details please see my review on "Kiosko Universal".

IF YOU WANT HOT SNACKS, most of the venders are located on the right of market if you are walking it from La Rambla (where the main entrance is). There they serve French Crepes (from 3.5 to 7.5 euros), Meditearean salads (from 2.5 to 3.5 euros), burritos (4.5 euros), Pizza (3.5 euros), Calzones (from 2 to 3.5 euros), Croquettes (normally less than 1 euro per unit), vegetarian omelet (2 euros), etc. There is also a few shops that serve cheap seafood. They are located at the right side but behind the central circle where or the fish stores are. Try the Bocalao Fritos (Cod fish ball). They are very fluffy and fishy, very different from fishballs in HK. Roast Chicken and portions of Paellas will be on sale near the back on the left side (please see the map for more details).

IF YOU WANT TO TRY SOME GOURMET CROQUETTES AND DUCK PRODUCTS, I recommand this place called Avinova Selecció. For details, please see my later posts.
