Bar Brutal, Barcelona – brutally natural

Bar Brutal Barcelona

Talk about a late blog post – my visit at Bar Brutal dates from February this year and this draft has been waiting ever since. Not too much details in my head about it now. But I definetely know that a visit is worth it. In particular wine lovers who enjoy the raw side, the natural side of wines shouldn’t miss this place out. “Natural wine” is the main topic here and the list features specimens from all over Europe, with the bulk coming from Spain and France.

Restaurant Cal Pep in Barcelona

Cal Pep is undeniably a legend among Barcelona tapas bars. Over the last decades it gained a reputation for high-quality bar food, serving market fresh produce directly at the counter.

Tapas 24, Barcelona – tapas unleashed

So I previously wrote about Carles Abellan’s fine dining restaurant Comerc 24 – now it is the turn of his tapas bar project named Tapas 24. It is located close to Barcelona’s shopping boulevard Passeig de Gracia and offers modern or just high-quality interpretations of tapas classics. For coming straight to the point: I loved it! Not only are these tapas made of top notch ingredients, but the added tweaks and twists elevate many of the dishes. If you’re in Barcelona, just go there! You won’t regret it!

Restaurant Can Rafa, Rosas

If you ever go to Rosas, when you have a reservation at EL Bulli for instance, there is another restaurant which might interest you. I believe it is some kind of well-known secret tip (check out here) that Can Rafa propably offers the best seafood in town and represents the ideal contrast to El Bulli. Here everything is simple. There is no menu: Rafa will compose Read the rest of this entry »
