El Sifo d’en Garriga – cosy new snack bar in Eixample, Barcelona

El Sifo d’en Garriga is a cosy new snack bar in Eixample, Barcelona that we stumbled upon recently.  In a location that is teeming with places to eat, this little cafe stood out from the others by its bright white clinical decor.  It has been sometime since we have come across any eatery calling itself a “snack bar”. Perhaps the Singapore Magnolia Snack Bar from days gone by was the last one we can remember.

Whichever side of the debate you are on, we think you will probably like Cosmo La Central Bookshop Cafe Barcelona, a lovely place that serves avocado toast at 4€ (S$6).

Forestier Restaurant and Lobby Bar, Hotel Miramar Barcelona

The intention was to have dinner at Forestier Restaurant in Hotel Miramar, a hotel located in the Monjuic region of Barcelona.  But en route to the restaurant, we had to walk through a beautiful lounge area – the Lobby Bar.  It was like a picture taken straight out of Architectural Digest. We decided quite quickly we should have dinner in two parts. Drinks and snacks in the lounge and serious food in the restaurant.
