A 5 star gastrobar
Merkado is the Gastrobar of the 5 star Melia Sky hotel in Barcelona. Located in the Glòries area, where the newest skyscrapers in the city meet, Merkado has direct access from the street or the hotel itself. Very spacious and with a colorful and elegant decoration, its public is varied. We meet people from the neighborhood who mix with guests and workers from the area who come to taste their menu.
A daily menu at a price of 15 euros where you can choose from a variety of 5 first 5 seconds and 5 desserts, including drink, limited to a glass of wine water or soda, and coffee.
The alternatives that Merkado offers are a simple but tasty cuisine, not missing some exotic ingredients like the parsnip that we found in the first dish that we chose, an original cream of carrot with coconut. But we also saw that they take advantage of the seasonal and local products like the tempura calçots with romesco. In the second course chosen, hake with green asparagus and cream of black garlic, a good and healthy combination that allows us to continue with the rest of the day. No frieds or sauces loaded with fats that can make our digestion a little heavier. The desserts are homemade and all were a temptation.
The daily menu in Merkado has a good price. Very tight if we consider that we speak of a hotel of superior category. But it is true that the same hotel has more restaurants with a higher level. In this case, Merkado is dedicated to day to day. If you are looking for a place in the area to eat well, healthy and cheap, without giving up the taste and with good service, Merkado is a good choice
