A few days ago The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awarded Noma as the best restaurant in the world. Second place was to El Celler de Can Roca of Joan, Josep and Jordi Roca. I’m going to write today about my visit to Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, specifically a Wednesday where I tried over 40 different flavors paired with the best wines.
The day started in Girona, where my friend Diego and I had lunch at El Celler de Can Roca. I couldn’t believe my eyes when, before we sat to eat, we where talking to Joan Roca who kindly received us for a chat. All of this thanks to Diego of course, who gave me the opportunity to live this unique experience and that will repeat itself in the future, hopefully.
I didn’t take any pictures at the Celler. Not of the dishes. They will remain in my memory. However I must let you know that if you enjoy eating and want to live an amazing gastronomic experience you must make your reservation now. An olive bonsai to the table with caramelized olives filled with anchovies cream, truffled brioche with escudella broth, cod fish in perfection, delicious and soft “cochinillo”, the Palamós shrimp, the vainille in various textures, the wines, the stellar atention. The three brothers united achieve as Jaume Coll says in its book: “…a fantastic symphony executed with rigor and accuracy with three soloists, the first violin, viola and cello…“
…and from almost paradise we moved back to Barcelona for dinner. Tickets Bar. Albert Adrià’s new tapas’ bar located next to the Ferran’s cocktail bar 41º.
