The New Street Food in Barcelona
A New Street Food Invented in Barcelona
What is a 'Tino'?
What does a Tino taste like?
- Pull Fiction – pulled pork, coleslaw, bbq sauce, mozzarella cheese
- Chicky Pesto – halal chicken, pesto sauce, bechamel, mozzarella cheese
- Tacotino – pulled beef, red onions, lime, coriander, mozzarella cheese
- Cabracadabra (veggie) – goat cheese, honey, spinach, nuts, raisins, mozzarella cheese
The Perfect Snack
They taste best piping hot, straight out of the oven. However, they stay hot for up to 50 mins, so are ideal to take back to your home, hotel, or down to the beach.
In fact, that’s what I did. I ate one in-store, on one of the stools provided, and then took the rest home to enjoy on my terrace.

The Best Ingredients
The quality ingredients and flavour options are what really make these bitesize snacks stand out. My absolute favourite was the TACOTINO. With the combination of fresh Mexican flavours, it really was like eating a taco wrapped in pizza dough. And, if you have doubts, don’t, trust me, it works.

Plans for the future?
Currently Tino have one shop in the Eixample neighbourhood of Barcelona. They have big plans though to expand and have locations across the city. In their venue on C/ de Còrsega there’s a couple of bar stools where you can eat in store, but it’s primarily a takeaway joint. My recommendation is take a box to the park, or home, or eat on the street.
