I had no idea about this place, until they tagged me on my Instagram. I started doing some research and realized how cool this place is! Next to a market (Mercat de la Concepció) there’s a delishop that’s packed from floor to ceiling with charcuterie, cheeses, condiments, pasta, you name it. But in the back there are a few tables where you can also have breakfast, lunch or dinner.
AND that’s not all. If you’re lucky the staff takes you through a door in the back, through the kitchen, up a couple of stairs, and into a big dining room. It looks like nothing has been touched for 60 years. It feels private and exclusive, and a real treat. Obviously the food is really great. Local dishes but top notch, and no frills.
IN A NUTSHELL
Atmosphere: Downstairs it’s cosy and homey, upstairs feels secluded and private. Both options are great. Even just the deli is worth a visit.
Recommended: The foie gras, the canelóns, the potato-chorizo-egg dish…
Specifics: I think the secret dining room upstairs is quite a specific..!
