During my last trip to Barcelona I discovered Born neighborhood, located quite close to the beach, where cobblestone streets are lined with small ateliers of new upcoming fashion designers and trendy stores ideal for browsing. This neighborhood dates back to the 10th century when craftsmen started settling around the area. Today, the street names still carry that heritage being named after the many skilled occupations so it is quite common to find a blacksmith or a milliner street.
A friend had recommend Sagas which is a nice informal place to grab a bite to eat when you are on the go. We really enjoyed it! Well decorated with posters on the walls and industrial feel wooden floors. At the back there is a long common table with high stools where we ate. The menu is composed mainly of salads and sandwiches inspired from both Catalan cuisine as well as international. They served their own version of David Chang’s pork belly steamed buns. Although they were good, David Chang’s are unbeatable. They buy the produce from local markets giving the dishes a fresh healthy feel.
We had the pork buns with spicy peanut sauce and ginger. a cecina (cured meat) sandwich and patatas bravas which were well fried with a slightly spicy sauce.
The prices are very reasonable, sandwiches from 8 – 12 euros.
