The Llamber experience

Llamber_By_Rodrigo_Stocco_0002It´s Friday and we all know what that means…time to relax, hang out with friends and family and have a nice meal that´s worth waiting the week for.

I love trying new restaurants, and lately, every Friday I introduce myself into an unknown gastronomic adventure where my palate performs as the only judge with a final verdict. I´ve had very good experiences and also, I´ve had terrible ones; but there is one restaurant that definitively deserves an A+ in every way: Llamber Taberna Gastronómica.

14374_172528482887742_155932426_nSituated beside the Born´s market in Barcelona, Llamber knows the meaning of the word gastronomy. It´s precision and perfection in every plate makes the “tapeo” concept an experience to every guest.

Fran Heras (chef and gastronomical director who had formerly worked with Ferrán Adriá “El Bulli”) and Eva Arbonés (winery supervisor, head chief in the room and interior designer) are the tandem behind Llamber. This is their second bet, as the first Llamber opened three years ago in Avilés. Their purpose is to offer a personal style based in the pleasures of a gastronomical experience and comfort, and also, to open the possibility for every public to have a good time while having a great meal at a reasonable price.Llamber comida

Boquerones, Gochu Asturcelta, Raf tomatoes from Almería and many other fresh and perfectly cared products are served for the guests to enjoy a wide diversity of dishes from this Spanish restaurant with Asturian inspiration and a Catalan savoir faire (the name “Llamber” itself, comes from the Asturian dialect that means trying diverse plates). Llamber_By_Rodrigo_Stocco_0012

Also, for wine lovers, Llamber has a winery offering 150 different references of wine including red, white, rosé, sparkling and dessert wine.

Some of the chef´s suggestions are: Fondue de parmesano con langostinos y trigueros, Guiso de plátano y piña con espuma de coco and Terrina de foie casera con maíz en texturas. Personally, I suggest Bonito marinado en salsa teriyaki, pesto de rucula y piñones (amazing!) and Patatas al cabrales con praliné de avellanas, you won´t regret it.

Llamber really works on making each meal a pleasure and, I would say, it was not only a pleasure, it was an experience way beyond a simple meal.
