When I’m looking for something new I look at the Plateselector or Barcelona Food Experience websites to find new ones. Traveler also has a great list of menus del dia in Gracia, my favorite barrio in Barcelona.
If you’d like to learn what are the most typical dishes in Catalonia and other regions of the world, I recommend Taste Atlas.
