A Spain Food Travel Guide
I have always dreamed of moving overseas, and for years it was a toss up between Spain and Italy. Who am I kidding, they are both still in the running! There is something about the Spain food travel scene that draws me in.
During our first visit to Barcelona, in 2007, we spent most of our time hanging around Las Ramblas, and exploring La Boqueria. I was mesmerized by the market, the fresh ingredients, the tapas, the pork. And, let’s not forget about the cava, the sparkling wine that I am infatuated with.
It was not, though, until we returned to Barcelona and tried to live like the locals do that we stepped away from the tourist center that is Las Ramblas. That is when Barcelona really opened up to us. It is when I realized that everyone needs an insider look, a Spain food travel guide to help them find the best foods in the best locations.
Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in the world. Hands down. I love Southeast Asia, don’t get me wrong, but there is something about the Spanish city by the sea, and the Spanish lifestyle that just draws me in. Once I figured out how to explore Barcelona like a local, and created my own Spain food travel guide to focus on the food scene in Barcelona, I really fell in love.

Madrid is Spain’s largest city. Nestled in the heart of the country, its size can be intimidating when looking for great food. We were lucky in that we met up with some friends who were able to provide us the inside scoop about where to go for the best tapas scene in Madrid. We were able to try Vermouth like the locals, and eat bacalao like the locals. This is the way to see Madrid, to explore the city with a Spain food travel guide that is focused on the best things to eat in the city.
Everyone rushes to visit Madrid and Barcelona when traveling to Spain. There is one region, though, which is a shining star for culinary tourism.
Costa Brava is the coastal region that runs from Barcelona to the French border. The rugged coastline is the perfect place to explore the traditional seafood that is popular in Costa Brava. And, home to more Michelin stars per capital than any other region, this tradition meets contemporary in a high end dining scene like no other.
To top it off, there is an amazing up and coming wine region, Emporda, where winemakers are taking centuries old vineyards and bringing them into the modern era in a wine renaissance.
