At Can Barris you plunge in a double Catalan tradition: that to have meals in families (numerous) and that to eat snails.
The place is rather incredible: huge standard car park motorway like, odds and ends of buildings not really pretty. But if you exceed this obstacle the inside is astonishing: vast kitchen high-tech, vast cellar wine on the entry, humidor cabinet with premium cigars, rustic decoration, large family tables, noisy but sympathetic, full of children and grandparents… Good to see that from time to time.
One thus comes here for the speciality from the place: the “Cargols” or in Spanish “Caracoles”, small Catalan snails. At Can Barris only one receipt: with tomato, presented in plates of 60,100,150,200 from 10 to 35 euros (count 50 per person). A true wonder of local savours and especially a perfect cooking; the snail being tender witch is rare in Catalonia. One makes kilometres in the area to taste this starter.
The principal dishes are quite as delicious, typical Catalan kitchen a la plancha, roasted or in sauce: shoulder of lamb (16 euros), chops of lamb (12,50 euros), rabbit (9,40 euros), squids a la plancha (11,50 euros), cod of the chief (13,60 euros) but also foie gras, carpaccio of foot of pig.
Very beautiful wine chart.
Only on reservation at the time which, you should not be surprised, one asks already for the number of snails that you wish to eat.
