Commitments mark these dates.

Trip to the Eixample

Without Borders

The journey to middle East that you couldn’t do with colleagues just turned into a dinner party.

Mexican beach

Pout and fuss

Free Zone

Business dinners tend to have little regard for food: the open bar matters more. Hence, many end up in the usual mediocre restaurants, with the usual bland dishes (prepared with the usual reluctance). Change the wave. The young Winery Pasaje 1986 venerate and care for the yaya’s traditional cuisine and try to be as fair as possible in prices. Xavi Alba, ex Tickets, runs this food house located in the Zona Franca and inhabited by local customers, not a foreigner. Here, the typical din of a group dinner turns into a moaning sonata. In few places have I eaten pig feet so sinful. The Russian salad with straw potatoes is buah! Even something as simple as a fricandó or one escalivada exude ancient epic. Do you hear it? It’s their special menu for groups calling out your boss’s name.

Christmas enchilada

soft what spring

Enough of Christmas dinners at Tex Mex restaurants that sprinkle ketchup on tacos. This year you will go to a Mexican in which a Mexican would eat, an authentic restaurant like The Tarantula of Saints. Since Albert Serra took over his stoves, this restaurant has become a Referrer absolute. The Catalan cook is a madman of the traditional mexican cuisine and he practices it with pride, fleeing clichés and aberrations ‘made in Spain’. His moles are the best I have ever tasted, the green aguachile and the ‘come back to life’ would make Franco’s corpse dance trap, and his tacos would pass the cotton test in the streets of Michoacán. 100% real.

Mouth to ear

It’s time for cake

There’s a new Asador de Aranda in the Paral • lel that tries to seduce a younger and more casual audience, without losing an iota of its Castilian identity. Has roast lamb, of course, and dishes as effective as scrambled eggs with Iberian ham, asparagus yolks or cheese boards. But if you’re sick of burger joint Christmas gatherings, the answer is a good cake. In this Asador, the star dish is the pig ear cake, with that typical bread from Aranda de Duero absorbing the juices and abundant crunchy and gelatinous ear cuts inside: he turns the happy bacon cheesebuger a thousand times. By the way, there is also a lamb cake and a children’s menu for your cretin brother-in-law.
