Delishop, Mallorca 241, L'Eixample, Barcelona

Delishop, Mallorca 241, L'Eixample, Barcelona [enlarge]

Sometimes it is hard to talk to you about nice shops in Barcelona without making the whole post look like a commercial. This is not an ad. You have my word on that. When I browse for places I would love to visit I enjoy reading about interesting spots and I really don't mind some promotion in posts as long as I don't smell the money. Not that I wouldn't accept it here but I prefer sponsoring on the sidebar better than an advertisement-ridden content. Once said that, allow me to show you this snapshot taken at the Delishop at carrer Mallorca right before the clerk turned his back to ask me if he could be of help. The place has nothing special to it except for the looks and that practicality implied in a take away. And that is precisely why I love the place. It is on my way to work and it comes handy when I am in a hurry. Service is good and food is properly displayed. I thought it was a very big franchise but upon visiting their web I found that they are just a couple of young entrepreneurs with an interesting story behind. I guess that made me like the place even more. Now that I give them good reviews why not suggesting the link, don't you think? Maybe I can get my chicken rolls for free!: Delishop, Mallorca 241

Note: I am really interested in knowing your opinion about giving helpful reviews and tips in Barcelona Photoblog the way a travel guide would do or not. I mean, taking pictures inside places and giving my opinion now and then against the usual neutrality of my posts in that sense. Do you have the same problem in your blogs?

First of all, I love all your pics; I think they are truly amazing; I like the way they depict Barcelona to strangers eyes.
I've never been to Barcelona, but I'm planning a visit.
For that reason, I think it's an absolutely good ideas, to give good hints between pics!!

I have just found your blog and first must say that I love your photos! We leave for Barcelona in less than a week - it is our first trip. I'm excited to have the opportunity to photograph such a lovely and vibrant city (And a bit afraid too based upon what is posted on the travel sites as I will be travelling with a good bit of camera gear.) We are hoping to catch the flavor of the city and not just the tourist areas so I have definitely enjoyed your opinions along the way and have bookmarked several places to visit!
Thank you!

I like the look of this store...nice and clean with well stocked shelves :o)

I noticed the tubes of Rolo's (bottom right). I'm not sure if these are co,mmon in Spain but in the UK they are a favourite. Have you tried these before Carlos? If not then do buy some as they are delicous :o)

Thanks for a lovely photo

I for one would be happy to see commentary and/or reviews. You seem to know the city enough that I trust your opinion and would be interested to hear your thoughts.

Keep up the good work!
