Gluten-free in Barcelona

By Sierra Sunkel

In June of 2019, I went on a cruise through Europe with my grandmother. The cruise started in Barcelona, Spain. My grandma and I stayed there for four days and during those four days, we found lots of gluten-free restaurants. Here are just a few of the places we visited.



Find Me Gluten Free
When we arrived in Barcelona, we went to our hotel and crashed for a few hours, because even though I travel often, we had been up for over 24 hours since I can’t sleep on planes. Once rested, we were starving, so I went on this gluten-free app called Find Me Gluten Free. It finds your location and suggests gluten-free restaurants around you.

Messi Sin Gluten
The first restaurant that I chose was Messi Sin Gluten. We got in a taxi and went to the restaurant. Their whole menu was 100% gluten-free, and they had their menu in four different languages, one being English, of course. The waiters and waitresses were very good at English, and the food was terrific. We went there twice because the food was just so good. I got the Fettuccine Alfredo, and my Grandma got the lasagna and the Caesar salad! I’d recommend if you’re going to Barcelona anytime soon, go to Messi Sin Gluten!


Hotel Expo
We stayed at the Hotel Expo, and our accommodations included a breakfast buffet each morning. When I travel, I like to speak to the chef and get them to show me what is safe for me to eat. The chef brought me gluten-free bread, croissant, and a delicious flaky chocolate pastry! I really wanted to have churros while in Barcelona, so my grandmother and I purchased them from the Mercado supermarket, and the hotel made a special exception and fried them up for me and served them with a hot chocolate. It was so nice!


Copasetic
My Grandma and I woke up late one morning, our hotel restaurant was closed and there were no breakfast restaurants open except for Copasetic. It’s a restaurant that serves breakfast food all day long. It's very popular and is so busy at night, that you need to make reservations the night before to get a table. Their menu is not 100% gluten-free, but they offer a wide variety of gluten-free. I got pancakes with vanilla ice cream and maple syrup, and my Grandma got the Greek breakfast with scrambled eggs that had tomatoes and feta in the eggs with Greek tahini yogurt with honey and walnuts, served with a mixed green salad and sweet balsamic dressing. Probably one of the best breakfasts I had on the whole trip and definitely the most filling. I would tell you to go here, but you’re probably already booking a trip to Barcelona.


M2 Gluten-free
My Grandma and I went to M2, an all gluten-free restaurant with probably the best gluten-free pizza you will ever have the pleasure of tasting. M2 offers a variety of menus with different languages. One waiter that worked at M2 actually spoke English, and Spanish was his second language. All of the employees that worked there were very happy and looked like they enjoyed working there. At night M2 is very popular and a little loud so if you can handle that you’ll have an amazing time. I got the Margherita pizza with tomato sauce, cheese, and basil and my Grandma got a Black Angus burger with goat cheese with onion and tomato marmalade, served with kale, carrot, and yuca vegetable chips.



All in all, I think Barcelona is a great Celiac-friendly place, even the McDonalds had gluten-free buns for the burgers. My Grandma and I found a bunch of gluten-free places all thanks to Instagram and the Find Me Gluten Free app.
