On the first editions it's time to: Ribera-Manero, a long-established traditional restaurant hidden inside the shopping center known as La Illa, in the middle of Avinguda Diagonal (that one that crosses all along the city of Barcelona in diagonal). It's a place where you'll find all kinds of delicious Mediterranean dishes. This one, it really is hidden. You get inside the mall, then downstairs to minus 1 Floor and you explore around, you get lost in the restaurants sections until you find it (not really good at giving directions... sorry!).
Once we have settled down in our table, the first thing we must do (and you should do too), is asking for bread with tomato. In case you don't know what it is, it is a catalan traditional food where you cut slices of bread and spread on one side tomato, olive oil and salt, and it is so good. Then, for first plates you've got such a wide range of options to go for that you will never get bored. Maybe you are feeling like some seafood or maybe better some cannelloni? And if you get a day where they have spaghetti.... it is so SO good. For main courses, again, there are many good dishes that you can try that I could not mention them all. Any kind of fish will always be deliciously cooked or pasta or really anything you feel like eating, because each and every single one will be an impressively good meal. I promise.
My everyday favorite is the tuna with some potato and cooked tomato, with the so good sauce of soy. It is magic. Awesome. Delicious. And really well smartly cooked.
By the way, they only serve fish, seafood and pasta, so sorry, no meat!
But promise me one thing: no matter what you've chosen a long your meal do always take some seconds to savor every bite. Stop and relax. Feel the explosion of flavors inside your mouth. It is an incredible experience, it is simply food, but a really good one..
