Another restaurant by renowned chef Paco Perez ( of the Michelin 3star Miramar) is the lovey L’egg; a relaxed scene at the top of Passeig de Gràcia –  just a few blocks from Casa Mila.

The menu as it’s name suggests, the offering is mostly of egg based dishes.  Though the restaurant is famous amongst locals for its cocktails.  As we did not try them, we can’t weigh in on that part 🙂

The food was quite good, with the Torrija the dish that had us coming back 2-3 times over the course of the week.  It was e(gg)cellent!

The tomato and piparras (traditional long green pepper from the Basque Country) salad, was quite good.

The Merluza (hake) tacos with miso mayonnaise  were particularly good although there were not tacos in the Mexican way, but battered and fried fish chunks.

The fried eggplant wedges  with honey,were interesting, but a bit too oily for our tastes.

Hands down L’eggs provided the best croquettes during our entire Barcelona culianry trip.  The were truly candy: fluffy inside with a tantalizingly crispy shell.

The Torrija de Santa Teresa, with vanilla coffee ice cream was the best ever, so good it sets the standard for any chef attempting to recreate this classic.  In our opinion, worth a Michelin star on its own!
