restaurant review #173 La Trocadero is a vegan fastfood self service bar near the Sagrada Familia. You order food at the counter, then go pick up your food at the counter (number called out in Spanish or Catalan). And one is expected to clean up after finished.
We went here for lunch, after our visit to the Sagrada Familia.
The menu is shown on TV screens above the counter. There’s an English explanation, and photos of the dishes next to it.
The girl serving at counter was a bit rude, and not very welcoming. She hardly spoke any English, but we managed to place our order.
La Trocadero is not for elaborate dining and wining. It is fastfood: burgers and hotdogs. No alcohol served, except some rootbeer.
The place seems newly renovated and seems very hip and modern. Very simple furniture though, but very creative (with vegetable boxes). There was retro stuff as decoration, like old televisions and radios. A very colourful interior.
We had a notdog (3,75€), onionrings (3,90€), a ‘bacon’ burger (8,50€), potato wedges on the side (1,80€) and several sauces (0,30 each). It had never eaten a vegan hotdog before, so this was a nice opportunity!
Drinks: a Whole Earth lemon (1,80€).
Our lunch was 20,35€, which is pretty cheap!
There are some desserts available (muffins), but we were quite stuffed.
Toilets were very clean and wheelchair accessible. Entrance was with a code number (written on order receipt), so only patrons of the restaurant can access it.
All in all: a nice fastfood lunch, cheap! And in a hip instagram worthy setting 😉 Pity the lady at the counter was a bit grumpy.
