This classic tapas bar routinely delights the palates of tourists curious to try this typically Spanish meal. Conveniently, it specializes in these delicious small plates, but is also famous for the classic pepito, a beef sandwich served warm, and the dish that gave the place its name.
Among the tapas on offer, the most popular are the patatas bravas and housemade croquettes, while the star dish is probably pepitas, a 21st century version of the traditional pepito, modernized to suit current appetites, with traditional, Neapolitan, vegetarian, and fish versions. Each delivers a truly thrilling combination that will surprise your eyes and please your taste buds. After dinner, La Pepita transforms into a local bar, perfect for starting the evening with a gin and tonic or a classic housemade vermouth, with gin, orange, and soda.
All this and more makes La Pepita the perfect place to enjoy an informal lunch or dinner with friends; its extensive menu of tapas and sandwiches has something for everyone. The sprawling menu and excellent service has made the local joint one of the most popular in the neighborhood of Gràcia. Hence, it’s often packed to the brim, particularly on weekends. And since it doesn’t take reservations, customers often have to wait a bit before being seated at a table. Thankfully, fast service and fine quality make the meal well worth the wait.
