We’re big fans of Oval here at 12hrs, a lovely burger restaurant in Barcelona that we feature in our 12hrs in Barcelona guide. So when we heard that the talented folks behind that eatery opened up another spot in the city, we were all ears.

The concept at Blitz is simple: they serve sandwiches! With ham and cheese, vegetables, smoked tofu or chicken. There are hot dogs on the menu, and some specialty sausages. All this is served quickly, hence the name that means ‘lightning’, in a beautifully designed, light space until late into the Catalanian night. Prices are low, and the staff is wonderful.

Next time hunger strikes like lightning in Barcelona, go here!
