On a journey around the city today I found another fabulous restaurant in the Sarria area. I’ve been craving more Mexican food and instead of going to my usual restaurant (Andele) I decided to just walk around an area in the city I hadn’t been before. Barcelona is the perfect city to get lost in. Because there is always either a metro station close by or a bus stop and if you’re familiar with street names or a certain neighborhood then you can more than likely find your way back home or to a familiar location.
The name of the restaurant is Che Burritos (Passeig de Sant Joan Bosco, 43). It’s a nice little restaurant, seats about 30 on the inside and has tables outside as well. BEST BURRITO I’ve ever had. I had the Carne Mexicano it had beef, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole and cheese! It was huge too! So if you get the maxy one make sure you’re hungry, there’s only about a 60 cent difference between the maxy and the regular size so it may be worth it!
Going to restaurants is also a good way to practice your Spanish as well. The waiter/waitress can usually tell that I’m American and ask me if I want them to speak in Spanish or English. I always tell them “en español hasta que yo no puedo entender,” and they always laugh. Good way to break the ice too for more conversation.
