Celeri ( Barcelona) 

   

  

  

  

  

  

 This Is a wonderful place for all vegetable lovers…And food lovers in general. The chef Xavier Pellicer shows how any vegetable can be transformed in the most delicious meal…in some cases with the little help of some pig’s parts. Eggplant ( with a touch of catalan sausage “botifarra”) Pumpkin ( the Pumpkin tatin with an almost Transparent touch of pig’s cheek was delicious) Celeri a la Meuniére.. The highlight of the dinner was a dish made with green peas , black truffle And the wild mushroom”trumpetes de la mort”: a m a z i n g!!! 

La Volátil

Very interesting  wine selection and a bunch of delicious  ( And inexpensive) tapas to go with in this charming place in C/ Muntaner 6  ( Barcelona) . Don’t miss ” las patatitas bravas con chipotle “,  las croquetas ( de gorgonzola y manzana , de ceps) and an amazing “tartare sandwich with foie”.  

    
    
 

Best brunch in Barcelona

Bruncherie Ugot in calle Viladomat serves daily, The best brunch in Barcelona. Try the truffled poached eggs with brioche soldiers or the eggs ” La pagesada”, with a generous chorizo portion. Very good coffee served in beautiful old cups. Amazing pies And cakes, great service, And a beautiful wall with pink flamingos. Who can ask for anything else? 

    
    
    
    
   

Chuka ramen

Very good , but overpriced ramen shop in Madrid. 16 euros for a ramen bowl is too much to pay, considering what you pay in the  best ramen place in NYC ( Chuko, 14 dollars) . Interesting edamame gyozas.Good cocktails. Noisy and  overcrowded.  

    
 

Ramen shop

This little charming ramenshop ,  hidden in a street of the Barcelona barrio gótico ( Gignàs 3)  serves excellent gyozas and a decent ramen ( salt, miso or the house special) . Good deserts and Asahi on tap.
