A Bit of the Unusual in Barcelona

What would a post about Barcelona from the Travel Shop Girl be without a mention of the unusual? I just love the strange and unexpected things I see in my travels. Just past the really cool Barcelona yellow and black taxi in the picture below is what else, but a Dunkin’ Coffee shop.

Imagine my excitement when I saw a vegetarian restaurant in Barcelona! Although we didn’t eat there, I was excited to see that a vegetarian restaurant was easy to locate in La Rambla. This is a fast food vegetarian restaurant and is for stand-up or take out service only. The menu consists of falafel, salad, french fries, and beverages. But still – it’s vegetarian!

You didn’t expect me to not find a Subway restaurant in Barcelona, did you? Yes, there was at least one and I suspect several more. The obvious highlight is that it’s combined with a sports bar. What’s better than a beer with your 6-inch cold cut combo or meatball sub?

Speaking of beer, look at the choices available in the window of this store. Admittedly, I stopped because I saw the Duff beer, but look at the cannabis beer next to it. Progressive!

We went inside the store to browse and I had to take pictures. First up: Ruffles Potato Chips. Yes, that flavor is ham and cheese.

How about a bag of Lays Potato Chips in Barbecue Ham flavor? Meat and potatoes all in one serving!

Now who says travel can’t be fun? With a camera in hand wherever you go, you can discover the unusual wherever you go. Up next in Barcelona: We’re finally stopping for tapas!
