When in Barcelona, consider a visit to the informal restaurant of Michelin stared chef Nandu Jubany . You can learn more about Jubany as he is a member of the “Science & Cooking” talks at Harvard University.
The restaurant itself is of modern design, with clean lines and a general air of significance. A combination of formality and professionalism abound.
Our amuse bouche was a calamari salad and potato pillows. They were quite elaborate via the effect of double frying at different temperatures.
Of course, we had the Catalan staples of cocas con tomate (bread with tomato), and escalibada, (grilled vegetables) with anchovies and romesco sauce. (Though we would probably order a bowl of the Romesco if possible!)
The grilled octopus with mashed potatoes and cayenne were good, but what we liked best was the esqueixada bacalla (fresh flaked salty cod) with tomato. It was very fresh and tender (and didn’t give me my Octopus guilt trip).
The Truita de botifarra (open omelette) with morels, goat cheese and tomato bread sounded better on the menu, as the eggs were too dry and the effect was lost.
Overall, it was quite a nice meal and we were happy and satisfied!
