Palosanto is a tiny hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Rambla del Raval, Barcelona

With indoor seating for a maximum of 20 diners, it can be hard to get a table at Palosanto – it doesn’t help that it only offers a couple of tables for more than two. What must be the world’s smallest kitchen turns out some pretty decent burgers, along with some more traditional tapas fare, alongside a few more unusual dishes such as the rather nice artichoke salad with tuna.

Okay, so the whole home-made produce thing and casual setting may scream hipster, but I’m not complaining: they have their own-label craft beer, their own smoked and cured pork products, and house-made pickles too. That means the burger is pretty fabulous (though it’s a double cheeseburger, so go hungry).

Caravelle also does a fantastic brunch, with plenty of eggy options for those slow-start days, and turns into a taqueria in the evenings, and the tacos are amazing too.

Highly recommended.
