Spain has always been one of the top places in the world when it comes to food. I confess that over these 2 years I’ve never tried so much different food and tasted so much wine. In Barcelona, I visited a wide range of restaurants, from small and cheap locals to prestigious locations renown worldwide. But recently, a new restaurant caught my attention: Pepito.
With a prestigious location between Rambla Cataluña and Paseo de Gracia, Pepito specializes (evidently) in Pepitos. This classic meal turns into a gourmet dish with ingredients such as Brie cheese, foie and pimientos de padrón (the typical green Galician peppers with a salty touch).
The menu holds a variety of plates such as salads exquisitely finished, meats, tartar, cod with honey and gourmet tapas. As well, many D.O. from Spain are available for you to choose and marry your meal to boost each flavor.
This fashionable and trendy site is the “it place” for Barcelona’s sybarites. The decoration and service allows the guests to stay longer to have dessert or enjoy a last drink in good company.
I urge you to visit it and try the Pepito Dupont (pimientos de padrón, foie and mushroom) or the Pepito Puig (brie cheese and grilled tomato), if you’re not into pepitos the salmon tartar with avocado is amazing, as well as the patatas bravas or the salad with burrata.
Don’t forget to make a reservation during weekends!
