El Tío Ché
Rambla del Poblenou, 44-46
In 1912 a Valencian family came to Barcelona intending to save enough money to board a ship to Argentina and to a better future. Fortunately for all Barcelona based lovers of horchata, the family stayed in the city and opened their very own Horchatería. During the years the business has been passed down through the family, survived economic depressions and even a bomb landing in the shop and they still manage to serve up the best horchata in the city. But what is horchata I hear (some of) you ask? It is a cold drink with its origins in Valencia, mainly served in summer and traditionally made from tigernut milk. Try it with the homemade fartons, the classic accompaniment to horchata, and enjoy the family run atmosphere.
