Barcelona for a weekend?

BFF and I are off to Barcelona for a quick weekend eat and drink all we can 'foodie' jaunt. We're looking for cheap cheap cheap budget accommodation in a 'foodie' neighbourhood. I'm not after expensive, fancy or upmarket food. Looking for more atmospheric old world, old man-local tapas bars that are super authentic and non--touristy. The more down and dirty the better. The goal is great food, not ridiculous prices. But will pay good money for great food. Any tips or recommendations? Thinking of staying in the Barrio Gothic area. Where should we go?

Las Vegas -authentic and off the strip?

thanks for all the replies.
Here are my findings: Lotus of Siam. Also a 3 AM sushi place called Ichiza. But the best meal we've had so far is Raku. It's Japanese home cooking, everything is grilled. They make their own homemade tofu (heaven) and it's where all the chefs go to eat when they are in town. In an off the strip, back alley, mini mall type place. Not glamorous. But definitely authentic and while the place is tiny, they accomodated our big group of 13 with no worries.

"authentic" meaning ie, not contrived mixed cuisine buffet's...or NY style steak houses you would find duplicated in Vegas or Chicago or LA. More "mom and pop" (maybe?) places, frequented by locals, that is true to it's roots and the authenticity of the country of it's cuisine... yes, we will have to rely on cabs.

I'm a NY foodie, who is off to Las Vegas for a work trip with 12 others. Looking for authentic dinner places I can take a large group and still get fantastic food. Hole-in-the-wall is fine. Can splurge if the food is good. Any suggestions?
