Ochobcn restaurant, a charming Argentine gastrobar in Barcelona


I don't know for what reason, whenever I go to Barcelona I end up eating in the Sant Antoni neighborhood, an area between El Poble Sec and El Raval where there are plenty of restaurants with that modern and casual touch that is so fashionable lately. One of them is this restaurant Ochobcn, a charming Argentine gastrobar.

It happens to me that, although I love Argentine restaurants and their meat, they don't always end up fitting into my budget and, also, I like better to eat tapas and try a little of each. That is why I liked the approach of this small place, since they offer interesting meats in small portions, as well as tapas with a mixture of Spanish, Catalan and Argentine cuisine, all at a fairly reasonable price.

We started the appetizers with a tapa of potato chocolates with romesco sauce, which were roast potatoes stuffed with a little of this delicious sauce. We also ordered a tapa of homemade gnocchi with pesto sauce, which were brutal.

To continue, two empanadas, something that you cannot stop asking for in an Argentine. On the one hand, a more classic minced meat, which was very very good; on the other, a mozzarella and onion confit, a combination that surprised and pleased us in equal parts.

After the empanadas, it was the turn of the hamburgers. We ordered a classic veal, with its lettuce, tomato, cheese and more, and it did not disappoint. The meat was just perfect, juicy and cooked just right. The bread was also very good and the rest of the ingredients were fresh. Without a doubt, a very good hamburger, and they are not his specialty.

His specialty, without a doubt, are meats. They offer different cuts, both of beef and pork: entraña from Galicia, bifé from Girona, entraña black angus from Nebraska, high loin from Argentina and extra Iberian secret from Guijuelo.

We tried the first three and the three were spectacular, with special mention of the black angus entrails, with a very good texture and flavor, although the truth is that any of the three made your taste buds smile.

Finally, for desserts, we chose a dulce de leche pancake that put the perfect finishing touch on a dinner at the Ochobcn restaurant, a charming gastrobar in Barcelona. My recommendation is that you try it, since dinner a la carte costs between 15 and 20 euros per person, and the quality of the ingredients already justifies that price, but it is also all very good and you can try quite a few different things.
