Seems I have the ability to find the greatest and shittiest places too, well, this one is specially interesting restaurant. In the core of Barcelona here you have the archetypical restaurant of local food properly prepared, very well priced, honest, no non-sense attitude yet smelly and weird and quirky.
What is my point with this entry? Well, if you want to have a true taste of local spanish day-to-day tapas with the usually crap service, smelly and smoky place, full of locals eating like mad, in an environment that let´s you wonder how is this possible? a super cool place because it is sooooo uncool? Look no further, this is a place you want to go, never for a first date, never for business, but for real local experiences.
Specially order the ¨Lacon¨ or ¨Bravas¨ which I found very good, specially given that there are so many other places that don´t know how to do these very very very dishes.
Anyway, if you are in Barcelona for a few days with some friends and you want to eat, go to O´toxo and have fun, remember to go before 2pm or you will queue like mad.
Hilarious no end.
