Creating jobs for Barcelona´s homeless

Hidden City Tours


Passionate about food, before joining Hidden City Tours Juan worked for many years in the soup kitchen preparing hearty meals for the homeless.  Although Juan has received no profesional training, his talents in the kitchen have incredible merit.  The soup kitchen depends on donations.  There Juan planned and cooked up nutritional meals for 50 people everyday based on the food they receive in donations.  “I just opened the fridge and started creating!” jokes Juan.

Through a closer collaboration and the wish to offer a unique experience to our customers, Tapas in the Chiringuito was launched in January 2015.  Quite simply there is no one who gives you the chance to learn about a local community soup kitchen – AND sample top notch food, all prepared by our guide and chef Juan.

Your tour (Classic or Street Life) will end at the soup kitchen and after a brief explanation of its mission, you will sample mothwatering nibbles washed down with the tipple of your choice!

On the menu will be:
Cured meats
Manchego cheese
Chistorra flambé
Spanish tortilla
Prawns in garlic
Wine, beer, soft drinks and water

Please remember that whilst the food is of high quality the Chiringuito is a soup kitchen and is not a  salubrious restaurant with luxurious surroundings

*Tapas in the Chiringuito is limited to 16 sitting or 35 people standing (buffet style) due to the reduced space available inside the soup kitchen

**Subject to availability as the Chiringuito´s prime use is as a soup kitchen. The Chiringuito is free certain lunchtimes  and most evenings from 20,30h onwards.

***Minimum 12 persons

Please contact lisa.grace@hiddencitytours.com for availability and prices

A very special place.....

Whilst researching our route through the Raval we stumbled across a soup kitchen project called God´s beach bar.  We stop by this small and friendly soup kitchen on our tour.  It is a project that represents the essence of our work too, small and personal but yet makes a huge difference to the lives of those who have nothing on a day to day basis.
