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!
