The best fish and chip chain in Barcelona has opened a gluten-free fish and chip shop on Carrer de Casanova. The fish and chips are perfect. They’re not greasy, they’re crispy, and they always hit the spot. If you are looking for traditional fish and chips this is not the place. The dough is far from traditional and the fries are seasoned with garam masala and a spicy mango chutney.

If the onions, garlic and curry are a problem for you the staff are happy to do without them, just ask them, they are very friendly and understanding. Apart from fish, they also sell other fried foods such as squid and shrimp. When traveling gluten-free in Barcelona, this little shop should be on your must-try list.
