In our article about Barcelona bars that serve pintxos, we told you about this popular Spanish appetizer and the best places in the city, where you can enjoy these delicious canapés. But the famous bar Blai 9 I would like to describe in more detail.
This bar is located on a pedestrian street of the same name in the Poble Sec area, which is full of restaurants and cafes, serving pintxos. But if you value originality and taste over price, you should definitely come to bar Blai 9. For starters we would recommend to take a walk along the bar and check the offer. Then order a drink, take a plate and choose the most delicious pintxos from a great variety placed at the bar. The owner of the restaurant has it's main purpose to surprise his customers with creativity and unusual combination of flavours and textures. There are pintxos for any taste: with fish, meat and vegetables.
The basis for the classic pintxos is often a slice of a baguette, but in Blai 9 they try to substitute bread for something more original, or go without it. Croquettes, creps, rolls ... Unusual "designer" pintxos attract attention and once you try the first few, you will immediately want to taste everything. Each pintxo costs 1,5 €, there is a large selection of wine and beer. The restaurant also has an outdoor terrace.
