Another good budget choice is one of the many kebab shops. These are Barcelonas equivalent to Turkish Starbucks because they can be found on every corner.

Mmmm, a kebab. That’s just what the doctor ordered, because hey, you really can’t go wrong with this meal option. Choose either lamb or chicken, typically, the meat is displayed on two giant vertical skewers spinning around in the front window. The restaurant owner throws that meat into a freshly-toasted pita (or try the “pizza”, where they wrap it up in a long tortilla), he (it’s always a he) adds some lettuce, onion, tomato and the award-winning spicy sauces, and voilá – You are about to set your teeth into perfection for only four euro!
