So was in Barcelona this week. Had to go there for work and well as a bonus I was able to go to have dinner at Tickets Albert Adria´s ¨Tapas¨ restaurant... http://ticketsbar.es/ I use ¨tapas¨ as this is not the typical tapas place that you can find in Spain... or better still in the world. First thing you must know is that its a RESERVATIONS only restaurant, so you have to go with a reservation... second you can only reserve online... so get online... third there is limited places and you can only reserve 3 months ahead... therefore the calendar online is a rolling 90 day calendar and availability is normally only available on day 90 at midnight... so stay up and book ASAP... aside from that welcome to a unique experience!!!!!
|First no, I did not make a mistake and was standing in front of a ticketing booth to go to the theatre... although at 7pm in Spain that is probably what people were thinking and not that I was going to have dinner... welcome to Tickets|
|Not your typical restaurant window...|
|Pescadito frito: Fried fish... crispy cod with powdered nori... they make a paste with the cod, dry the paste and then fry them... like eating crispy kropek but flavored with cod... light and delicate and like kropek addictive|
|Crispy cone of nori with tuna belly tartar, tomato seed, flying fish roe and chilli strand... the cone is made with brick pastry and nori wrapped together... crispy, full of flavor... beautiful to look at and to taste !!!|
|Taco of rabbit al salmorejo... traditional rabbit stew from the Canary Islands... powerful taco, loved the soft wheat taco... the flavors reminded me of the tacos in mexico...|
|Boiled Iberico pork with potatoes and pork broth... this I loved... its a refined version of a typical Gallegan dish that is boiled salt pork with potatoes olive oil and paprika... but refined in flavor and texture...|
|Liquid Payoyo cheese ravioli... typical cheese from Andalusia... my pre-dessert !!!|
|Hot-Cold Chocolate fritters: they explode in your mouth with this rich chocolaty sauce !!!! I could have eaten another plate of these !!!!|
|Hot Liquid Almond cake with red peach sorbet... its almost like a liquid soufflé when you start eating it the centre oozes out this warm almond mousse that contrast so well with the cold peach sorbet...|
|I know what you are thinking and so was I but no they really are stones... its the chocolate and hazelnut rock on top that was the dessert... its always nice to finish off with a great chocolaty flavor !!!|
|Even the coffee is served in a different way... suspension of different liquids with different densities anyone??|
I thought I would leave you with a video of the restaurant from the inside... it really is in my opinion a unique dinning experience... so I suggest get online... and try and book cause you won't be disappointed !!!!
