Quimet & Quimet is entirely dedicated to serving conservas—tinned produce, meat, and seafood with near mythical status in Spanish tapas bar culture—on slices of bread. They can everything themselves and serve it up as a small, open sandwich called a montadito.

Get there when they open at noon, and with a bit of luck, there won’t be a line outside. If you end up having to wait the thirty or so minutes to get in, it’ll be worth it to experience one of Barcelona's most classic tapas establishments. Once you’re in, jostle your way through the tiny, standing-room-only bar, where hundreds of bottles line the walls, to try ones like the famous salmon with Greek yogurt and truffle honey, the pickled Iberian pork cheek, or the foie gras with mushrooms and chestnuts.
