Great and Inexpensive Restaurant in Barcelona

Great and Inexpensive Restaurant in Barcelona

Great and inexpensive restaurant in Barcelona.

Is it possible? It surely is. It is the case of Somodó a Catalan restaurant with a Japanese chef in the authentic Gracia district (barrio de Gracia). Somodó offers a lunch tasting menu for as little as 20€ with wine and coffee included. For dinner there are two tasting menus at 29€ and 35€ wine excluded.

The food is seasonal and the menu changes every week. Shojiro is the name of the chef, a Japanese who has been living in Barcelona for several years. He is a highly skilled chef who mixes cooking techniques to prepare creative Mediterranean dishes with a Japanese touch.

We had lunch at Somodó this morning. The menu offers appetiser, entrée, main course, a cheese taste a dessert a bottle of wine for two, water and coffee for as little as 20€. I am posting the photos of the full meal so you can judge with your own eyes. I hope you agree that Delicious food is not always expensive. Somodó is really a great and inexpensive restaurant in Barcelona

This little gem is hidden in c. Ros de Olano 11, it seats approximately 25 people in a space that is like an old Gracia home. Very simple yet charming. It is better to book in advance.

If you are staying in Sitges and spend a day to visit Barcelona, a slow lunch at Somodó is recommended. While you are visiting monuments such as La Pedrera or Casa Batlló you can easily walk to Somodó and take a break there for lunch. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Barcelona. Out of tourist guides it is really a place for slow and quality food lovers. Enjoy!

Sitges in April

Sitges in April

Sitges in April is beautiful! The weather is perfect: sunny and mild.

Waking up at Casita Sitges in April is lovely. You can start the day having a breakfast in the sea views terrace surrounded by the lovely petunias we planted this spring. Then you can plan your day and make it a lazy or an active one. You can sun bake by the beach or you can play sport such as football or beach tennis like we are showing in the video. Or you can grab Casita Sitges bikes available to our guests to discover Sitges by bike.

The promenades are lively, shopping is great and meals are served outdoor in those restaurants with an outdoor terrace. There is nothing better than having a great paella and a cold bear in the sea front!

Sitges town has a great 18 holes golf club and one can play golf too. Sitges golf club is by the seashore and it is considered one of the best golf club in Spain!

We filmed all this in this short video of 90 seconds. Sitges in April is fantastic, enjoy it!

Vladinsky painting

Art Exhibition in Sitges

A new art exhibition in Sitges will be shown at Out of Africa Gallery this April. The work of Vladinsky will be on show from April 9 thru May 29, 2016.

Vladinsky was born in 1988 in Onesti, Romania. With a background in graphic design he first approached abstract painting to eventually move his artistic expression into portraits.

His artistic language draws inspiration from pop art with a very expressive and powerful work. The paintings on show at Out of Africa are a series of portraits of Black celebrities who had an impact to the world.

The paintings are all large format and with the colourful pop technique used they are quite impressive. The opening show will be on April 9th, 2016 at 8.00pm with a jam session and cava cocktail.

Out of Africa is an art gallery specialized in African and tribal art that is now a reference in Catalonia. With 6 art exhibitions every year the gallery works with the most talented African artists in the market. These artists can be either young promising artists or already established and recognized ones in the art world.

Out of Africa is located in c. Mayor 7.

Your Hosts at Casita Sitges and our Supper Club

For a guest choosing to stay in a holiday rental is an act of trust. You never know what you are going to get… till you get there. Good photos and a honest description of the property are therefore very important. With those descriptions one can give the guests a very good idea of what they can experience during their holiday.

At Casita Sitges we do our best to share a comprehensive photo reportage of the apartment. With our blog we update our guests and anybody else on the changes and improvements we make in our lovely Casita. We also share stories and news about Sitges and Barcelona driven by our taste and our own curiosity always with the intent to do a service to our guests.

To complete the picture of our home and our hospitality style we have just added a page on our website about us, your hosts. We shared a bit about our story, the things we like and what specifically we like to offer to our guests. We also talk about gastronomy and our Supper Club, an opportunity to get us know better and for us a fantastic experience to spend more time with our guests. The Supper Club, most of all, is an authentic experience and a chance to make a deeper dive into the wonderful gastronomical culture in Catalonia and Spain.

We hope you will enjoy reading our story!

Sitges (Barcelona) Carnival

We are in the middle of the great Carnival in Sitges. The town is sparkling and full of life. Sunday the village was packed and very lively. At 4pm took place the children's parade and at 8pm the adults' parade.
I took some photos of the town in between these two parades. Such a joyful atmosphere. Celebrating Carnival on a beach town is quite something.
If you are still undecided… hurry up! The biggest parade is on Tuesday February 9. Again, there will be the children parade first and the adult parade at 8pm. Happy Carnival!
