Porxos del Port, the Pla de Palau Association of commercial establishments, becomes the epicentre of signature tapas in Barcelona #lacuinadelport.

Thanks to a dozen restaurants that form part of the Porxos del Port Association and its #lacuinadelport programme, you can enjoy a selection of tapas steeped in history throughout the month of October.

The kitchen teams of 10 restaurants in Porxos del Port, the commercial hub of Isabel II, Llauder, Reina Cristina and Pas Sota Murall streets, have come up with a proposal of 10 seasonal tapas paired with a wine, cava or beer inspired by the history and culture of each restaurant.

From 1 October in the 10 restaurants: 7 Portes, Oaxaca, Carballeira, Casa Pascual, Cadaqués, La Cala, Maracaibo, Bodega Vidrios y Cristales, Can Paixano and Perikete, you can enjoy their culinary proposal at the service of all visitors who come to the Porxos del Port area for €6 each tapa (price including pairing).

There will also be a competition on instagram @portxosdelport where three lunches or three dinners for two people worth €90 per couple will be raffled off to enjoy at the restaurant of their choice.

Porxos del Port, through actions such as #lacuinadelport, seeks to give visibility and attract the local public to one of the commercial hubs with more history and gastronomic DNA of the city.

Porxos del Port currently has 20 members who are part of this association, ranging from restaurants such as Carballeira, Oaxaca, Can Paixano,… to hotels such as the H10 Port Vell, Hotel del Mar, establishments steeped in history, to institutions such as La Llotja de Mar Cambra de Comerç), Barcelona Tech City and the Faculty of Nautical Studies of Barcelona (UPC).

About Porxos del Port

Porxos del Port is the Pla de Palau Traders’ Association, which has come together to restore the original prominence of the group of porticoed buildings known as Porxos d’en Xifré. It is an Elizabethan-style building that represents an example of Barcelona’s neoclassical architecture. It was commissioned by Josep Xifré y Casas, an Indian who had made his fortune in Cuba and New York and was considered the richest man in the city who built the first modern building (running water…) in the style of the great European avenues (Rue Rivoli).
