This boho hangout offers very basic fare ( salads, charcuterie)
for very chic people. Three things to highlight:the waiters, probably the nicer people in Paris , an extremely good champagne maison, offered in big glasses at a great price, and an amazingly airy chocolate mousse.
They always makes me think of funerals.Never a good feeling when you ‘re about to eat.
The kind of champagne you can drink with everything , even with french fries And hot dogs!
A refreshing gem of a cake in “Xococake”, a chocolate shop with all kinds of chocolates and butter croissants to die for , in the centre of Barcelona ( Gran de Gràcia). With grapefruit, orange, lime , ginger and lemon mousse , this is one of the lightest and tastiest cakes I ever tried.
It goes directly to your brain. It’s like surfing naked in a Galícia beach. In Espai Kru, a place for gourmet surfers and amateur mermaids in Barcelona ( c/ Lleida 7). Irresistible.
….cold pressed olive oil and smoked salt: the best and simplest salad ever.
There’s more ice cream shops in Gràcia ( Barcelona) than any other neighborhood in the city. But Ottimo ( Plaça Vila de Gràcia) .
Ottimo is one of the best. Their pure fruit sorbets are superb ( pear, apple, melon, tangerine). Try the affogato ( spresso with vanilla ice cream) or the one in the picture, my favourite: combination of mascarcapone, nocciola and coconut.
