There are not many better things than strolling the seaside on a Sunday evening, right? This is one of the perks of this city; you can both have the advantages of a city, with its theaters, people and shops (we love all of them :P) and also you can escape to a coast town just by visiting La Barceloneta.
Well, coast town may be a little to much, the amount of people and the Vela hotel at the end of the boardwalk can be a constant reminder of the city as well, but the beach and the people walking with swimsuits and towels are the perfect contrast.
We ended that day at Kiosko burger, a good place that is 5 minutes away from La Barceloneta subway stop. The burgers are delicious and at very good prices, the only setback is that on peek-hours there is usually a line to wait. The restaurant is more a take-away place, but you can also eat inside (we prefer it this way) using the counters or a big wood table to share. Our favorite burger is la Manchega, that apart from the eco-certified burger comes with caramelized onions, manchego cheese, mayonnaise, tomato and lettuce. And if you go there, share some potatoes and don’t forget to taste their homemade ketchup (spicy and regular).

P.S: I have taken over the blog posts that were scheduled while we were in Madrid and our US roadtrip, Dani will come back with the next ones with new (and tons :P) of pictures. Now we are back and safe in Barcelona, we had a wonderful time in US (!), and we will share all the pictures soon! :) Meanwhile you can take a first preview in our Instagram account, if you fancy. Sorry for not replying properly to comments during all this time, we will surely try to mend it.
The old Barceloneta neighborhood has a very coastal town feeling
Staying hydrated in the first hours of the evening is a must.
Making sure Anna’s picture is the most in line as possible :)
My stolen purse (I had it back then when we took those pictures). I am thinking of maybe purchasing it again (no matter how hard it is) because, well, it has a cat on it :) what do you think? would you purchase it for a second time?
Hey, this time is Dani stealing my jumping scene, hahaha
It was quite hard to stand in this little rock, my feet look a bit weird :)
Son Goku hair style!
Hahaha, love Anna’s kissing faces
