The Bikini sandwich at La Esquina
If the sound of gooey melted cheese and warm, toasted bread is music to your ears, then head to La Esquina and order the Bikini sandwich. Named after the city’s Bikini concert hall, home to the dining hall that first served up Catalan‘s answer to a ham and cheese toastie, the Bikini comes in varying shapes and sizes, although the standard café version usually involves soft white bread and cooked ham. Renowned as the best Bikini in Barcelona, La Esquina’s version is made using jamón ibérico, full-flavoured Gruyère cheese and slices of sourdough bread.
