Something’s cooking and it’s fun looking, in the middle of Las Ramblas, right under the Grand Opera Theatre the Liceu and you don’t want to miss it!

It’s called Opera Samfaina and it’s a multisensorial gastronomical experience created by the famous Roca Brothers (3 star Michelin chefs, among the  TOP 50 in the world) and a team of talented artists who have designed the audiovisuals (Franc Aleu)  musicians, carpenters , sculptors, ceramists… projected or contained in this Grand space dedicated to Cataluña’s culture, it’s traditions and food.

Catalan cuisine relies heavily on Mediterranean ingredients such as tomato, garlic, eggplant, bread, olive oil, anchovies, cod, lamb, pork and poultry. Samfaina is the Catalan version of ratatouille. Catalan cuisine is widely renowned and critically acclaimed all over the world.

The space is divided into various areas an entrance bar where the best vermouth, sangria, regional wines and cava are served and in the basement lots more, among the 5 different Menus:  Diva,  Odyssey, Samfaina, Catalectic, and the Solidarity Bar’s kitchen where also other top Catalan chefs have  designed their own dish, the benefits go to different social integration associations in the City.

All 5 menus are well designed to understand why Catalan cuisine is widely renowned and critically acclaimed all over the world.
Menu prices vary from 25 to 38 Euros

Bcn Fashionista recommends:

the complete gastronomical tour:
First the Odyssey experience with A 360º audiovisual, a musical projection coupled with a wine tasting and a guessing game of Catalan products selected by the Roca Brothers

…and then the real meal, the Diva Menu experience where a waiter -croupier handles the whole gastronomical show .

The whole tour is unique Odyssey includes a 40 min. projection experience and  Diva an hour meal, including 8 dishes and several glasses of wine and it adds up to 71 Euros … a lot less than the exclusive  1.000 Euro Sublimation / Ibiza’s fancy treat!

If you are still hungry, when you exit, you can try Rocambolesc ice cream stand. If I were you, I would get a cup with 2 scoops, 1 of chocolate and the other of ¨pa sucat amp oli¨ (toasted bread with olive oil and SALT) both combined with a cotton candy topping are yummy delicious!

this kind of  break, from your nutritional diet, is worth it!

Ah and don’t miss the bathroom

or the small market at the exit
