Barcelona for students on a budget

Where to go out?

Well, there are a few bars in Barcelona that are reaaaaally cheap ! You just need to escape from the touristic places in which a mojito will cost you 8€ !

The absolute two best bars in my opinion are : The Lime House and The Rubi. A normal mojito costs 3.5€, a strawberry or raspberry one costs 5€. But trust me the amount of alcohol is consequent !!! Then you can have the famous Gin Tonic (I hope you’ve noticed that it’s the absolute favorite drink of the locals) ! They have around 70 different kinds of Gin Tonic… and it costs 7€. Enough said.

Barcelona for students on a budget

Rubi bar : Carrer dels Banys Vells, 6

The Lime House : Carrer dels Carders, 31

When it comes to clubs, most of them are free until 2 am, you just have to put yourself on a guest list online. Just register on Shaz Guest List and you’re good to go. All of the beach clubs are free until 2 and some others until 1 or 1.30 like Jamboree or Otto Zutts. When you do it right you’ll never have to pay to enter a club (except if there is a special guest DJ).

Where to eat ?

There actually are a lot of places to eat in Barcelona for students on a budget, first of all, you might be interested in checking our blog Free Tapas in Barcelona.

If you’re looking for random food to eat for lunch you might fall in love with “Nostrum”. There are a lot of them all around the city and they make really good food for 1 or 2€ a meal.

Then if you’re looking for real restaurants you might want to go to Tacos Tacos : they have different kind of promotions depending on the day of the week (1€ beer, 1€ tacos etc). It is located on Calle Tamarit, 85.

And if you want to eat pinchos you should definitely go to Lizarran ! Once again, there are plenty of them in Barcelona, and it’s really cheap !!

If you want to brunch in Barcelona for cheap, you should either go to Sor Rita (Carrer de la Mercè, 27), The Benedict (Carrer Gignàs, 23) or To Be (Carrer del Consell de Cent, 90). Those 3 restaurants offer a FREE buffet if you buy drinks for 5€. Isn’t that amazing!?

Others

The life in Barcelona for students on a budget isn’t all parties and eating out though. You’ll have to think about the everyday life. In terms of groceries you can find cheap supermarkets to do your grocery shopping, or to go to low cost gym clubs.

Actually the cheapest supermarkets of Barcelona are Mercadona and Consum. You’ll find everything you want at the lowest prices possible !

If you’d like to do sport, you can go jogging on the beach or subscribe to one of the lowcost gym clubs in Barcelona (check out our blog to learn more about it).

Barcelona for students on a budget

Don’t forget that if you’re under 25, the metro card for 3 months is only 105€ ! Don’t buy 10 trips cards you’ll spend more money that you need to.

That’s it for today guys, I hope my blog was helpful to all of the broke people in Barcelona like me !! If you have any other tips that you would like us to mention, just let us know in the comment section below!

Halal Restaurants in Barcelona


 

Hi Guys!!!!!

Todays blog is about Halal Restaurants and where to find them in Barcelona.

As someone who only eats Halal meat, this was a quite a big deal for me as for when I first arrived in Barcelona I didn’t have the faintest clue where to find any sort of halal meat

But now I know, so what are we waiting for lets take a trip down the halal meat lane!! (p.s there is no actual halal meat lane)

Now the ideal place to find all your halal meat is La Raval!!!

Famous today for its huge cultural diversity La Raval is your best choice for trying delicious Halal cuisine. Literally, walking around the area for 5 minutes is totally enough for you to find a nice and cozy Halal restaurant.

Maharaja Restaurante

Halal restaurants in Barcelona

This restaurant opened its doors in 2001. Running for nearly a decade and a half, Maharaja has built its fine reputation as being one of the ‘big’ players in traditional Halal cuisine making it one of the finest Halal restaurants in Barcelona. Maharaja offers typical Indian dishes prepared with typical Indian techniques. Expect nothing less than brilliant food with rich flavors and textures.

What’s famous about this restaurant is their fine selection of Indian spices. Having more than 40 types of spices in the chef’s disposal you can be assured that your meal at Maharaja will be the most aromatic and flavorful thing you have tasted all day. This restaurant just wows its visitors with its brilliant decor. Typically colorful draperies and table cloths, walls full of great Indian art and an atmosphere ‘to die for’ is what this restaurant is all about. A personal favorite of all the Halal restaurants in Barcelona.

 

Askadinya

 


If that doesn’t pickle your fancy … get it pickle … okay maybe not

Well Askadinya is another top Halal Restaurant in Barcelona.  This restaurant specialises in both Arabic and Palestinian food!!
Askadinya is all homemade food and provides a Mediterranean diet!! I’m not even sure what a Mediterranean diet consists of but Im having it!!!

Located in the heart of Gracia, Askadinya offers a range of food all Halal!!! They also do special menu deals for both weekdays and weekends which is ideal if you love 3/4 courses like myself!!! This is a perfect restaurant for someone who eats Halal food but also wants to eat healthy. The restaurant itself provides a great atmosphere and friendly service from its staff.  Askadinya is most certainly one of my top Halal Restaurants in Barcelona.

 

Bombay Spicy

Halal restaurants in Barcelona

One of the Halal restaurants in Barcelona where value for money meets quality. The offered food is simply amazing. What’s better than enjoying an exquisite meal in a friendly restaurant that makes you feel like home for a very reasonable price? Well, nothing! A great bonus that Bombay Spicy has to offer is delivery.

For the times when you are just feeling too comfortable at home enjoying a good movie but craving some delicious Indian food, all you have to do is just dial the number, place your order and soon enough the delivery guy will be outside your door handing you your delicious food. But honestly, why waste the opportunity and not go to the restaurant to have a perfect dining experience? In summery, one of the best choices when it comes to Halal restaurants in Barcelona.

 

Pita House


Do you love Pita?

Do you love Houses?

Pita House caters all, whether its for lunch, dinner or just a snack. This place aims to satisfy all. Whether its quality food you want for certain fancy occasions or just take away food for a night in. Pita house is a must visit Halal restaurant in Barcelona.

From Falafels to chicken pitas from Hummus to Durums this place oozes in Arab cuisine. So if you are drooling on your keyboard as I am then Pita house is a place you should dine!!!

Pita house is a great Halal restaurant in Barcelona because not only is the food and the prices great but it also has a terrace you could eat on which has a capacity of 48 people!! Perfect for family and friends. It is also really easy to get to as all you need to do is get the L3 at LIceu.

I am just an intern who is on a budget so I rarely come to this Barcelona Vietnamese restaurant because of its pricey menu but if you are in a generous mood and desire an outstanding and tasting menu, you should give it a try. The most attractive thing is its interior beautifully decorated like an Asian tropical garden with bamboo and fish all around. Also, it is really nice that  your dishes’s colorful garnish are made from plants grown at the restaurant terrace by Ly Leap, the place owner. Some of the highlights on the classic menu include marinated chicken in ginger, garlic, soy, coriander and wrapped with lemon leaves and Green mango with caramelized pork meat.

Just imagine you enjoy your dinner in an exotic landscape with tables set in an artificial pond with huge gold fish, it would definitely be an unique experience!
