Bodega 1900 is one of Albert Adria's tapas bar/restaurant. It is a perfect blend of good food and casual dining. Their main focus is tapas and vermouth. They have their own house vermouth, which was absolutely delicious and I highly recommend getting it.
The space itself is directly across from the fancier tapas restaurant Tickets. Bodega 1900 is probably easier to obtain reservations (although I booked 2 months in advance). Interiorly, it's simple and upon first glance, you're taken away by the iberico ham on display that is ready to be sliced. There are seats in the front and the outside as well as a countertop along the wall to dine. Additional tables are situated in the rear of the restaurant for those who wish to dine where the kitchen is situated.

|BABY BEACH SQUID (€10.80). This dish was also delicious and fresh. It is cooked in a garlic butter sauce. If you like fresh calamari, this is the dish for you. It's a change from the traditional fried dish.|
|BREAD WITH TOMATO (€3.60). This is one of my favorite things. It's basically bread with tomato and olive oil. It's delicious and I always order it with the ham.|
|OUR HOUSE VERMOUTH (€3.80). This is one of my favorite drinks. It's vermouth and it's their own. It's a perfect digestif and I highly recommend getting it.|
Overall, I loved Bodega 1900 and it was a perfect way to start off my trip in Barcelona. The staff were friendly and I was able to practice my Spanish with them. They do speak English as well for those who don't speak Spanish. Everything I ordered was delicious and it is a nice restaurant if you're feeling peckish and want variety. It is reasonably priced unless you're like me. I ended up over-ordering and ate every last bite. I mean, who orders three desserts just for yourself? I do!
Notable Dishes: Flan, Razor Clams, and jamon iberico
