Catalan cuisine in an imaginary and delusional world!
Òpera Samfaina is the most surreal place in Barcelona and for a long time. Imagine a place where all your senses will be awakened to make you experience a unique culinary journey where decor, lighting, music and flavors will be a true firework of sensations!
We had already spoken of Rocambolesc, this brilliant glacier. Well the same team is in command of this new adventure located elsewhere in the same place (in the Liceu). The Roca brothers for the Catalan cuisine and the extravagant Frank Aleu for the scenery of the place.
This guy is a Catalan magician already rewarded for his videos, his sets of theater and dance but especially for his overflowing imagination!
At Opera Samfaina he created the most delusional restaurant of the moment when you will meet giants, fairies, water, fire and many other surprises. An Opera divided into 4 acts, which begins with a Vermutería: the occasion to drink vermouth and to eat some tapas. Here you are given an electronic bracelet that will count what you will eat and drink during your visit.
Second place Odissea can only hold 16 people so you have to book. Its principle is to associate Catalan dishes and wines while images of Catalan legends are projected.
Further on, La Diva, is the true center of the place. Divided into several themed tables and several bars, including a wine bar, you will taste, in a rain of video, tapas imagined by the Michelin-starred brothers that are the Roca brothers but also by their friends Chefs invited to participate to the menu.
On this day, for example, the : “ Mollete “Las Ramblas” of Albert Adrià, Fricandó of Nandu Jubany, Los huevos fritos from Quim de la Boqueria, El dulce of Christian Escribà, El huevo sorpresa of Carles Abellan”..
The best of the best in the same place, what a delightful idea!
Finally the Mercat divided also in 5 atmospheres proposes you to discover the classical dishes of Catalan cuisine. All this is magic in the image of Sotomar where fish we eat fish under a blue barque hanging from the ceiling..
It is up to you to discover other atmospheres and other dishes. Know that even Sant Jordi is part of the party.
You can consume whatever you want, just have a drink or make a fantastic meal. And if you are not satisfied the Botiga - the shop - allows you to buy a wonderful selection of Catalan products.
A restaurant in the image of this city: completely crazy!
