Born Street Food fair brings chefs and DJs to Barcelona once more
The 10th edition of the gourmet food and music micro-festival will include food trucks from some of the finest restaurants in the neighborhood
The Born Street Food fair returns from September 30 to October 2 this year, bringing quality chefs, DJs, and a great festival atmosphere back to Pla de Palau.
The 10th edition of the micro-festival will see chefs from 16 of the finest restaurants in the neighborhood of Born, including Oaxaca, 7 Portes, and Bronzo.
For three days the square at Pla de Palau will be transformed into a mini music and food festival, buzzing with an electric atmosphere, as locals bid farewell to the summer by enjoying some of the best gourmet flavors available locally, paired with their exquisite wines and other beverages.
“The festival was such a success that a couple of months ago it attracted more than 20,000 people,” the president of the organizing group Barcelona Born Gourmet Association, Iñaki López de Viñaspre, explained in a press release.
“The special edition of La Mercè is a unique opportunity to taste the flavor of the neighborhood again, but, above all, to enjoy good company and music, saying goodbye to summer as it deserves.”
The full list of participating restaurants is: Bodega Vidrios y Cristales; Sagardi Cocineros Vascos; Guzzo Club; El Foro Restaurante; Oaxaca Cuina Mexicana; La Barra del 7 Portes; Cadaqués Cuina Mediterrània; Bronzo Bar e Cucina; 1881 per Sagardi; Euskal Etxea Taberna; Tapeo Born; Sagàs Pagesos i Cuiners; Vila Viniteca; Pork... boig per tu; Golfo de Bizkaia; Ikoya Izakaya.
Among this list are some of the best and most creative chefs working in Barcelona today, including Joan Bagur, the standard-bearer for one of the best Mexican restaurants in Barcelona at Oaxaca Cuina Mexicana, the Viñaspre brothers and their mythical Basque grill Sagardi, fresh from London's 'Meatopia' food festival, as well as Dani Rueda with his creative tapas from Tapeo Born.
Eva Vila is one of the city’s best cheese experts at La Teca de Vila Viniteca, and you can enjoy her selections paired with the wines of sommelier Quim Vila.
Also available at the festival will be the rice dishes cooked over orange wood from Restaurant Cadaqués, as well as one of the city's great new eateries, the Ikoya Izakaya Japanese tavern, which will delight us with its ‘robata’ Japanese grill.
You’ll be able to enjoy the Born Street Food festival in Pla de Palau in the neighborhood of Born from noon to 11pm on Friday, September 30, and Saturday, October 1, and from noon to 10pm on Sunday, October 2.
