Another incredible experience @disfrutarbcn in Barcelona. Now well deserved number 3 on the World’s 50 Best list. We had the pleasure again of dining in the private research and development kitchen. This is one of my absolute favourite restaurants in Europe and a must visit for any serious food lover

Acho que nunca me foi tão fácil resumir um almoço. Uma refeição de 4h, um longo e prazeroso espetáculo gastro-performativo em que as texturas, sabores, temperaturas fazem parte da linguagem utilizada. Subtil, já que foco tem de ser apenas um - o objecto gastronómico. Uma performance que por diversas vezes apela ao comensal, que aqui é convidado a interagir e a finalizar o "acto” - , com um olhar (por uma lupa), com um cheiro (depois de lavar as mãos com whisky fumado), com um toque. 🥃(swipe...

As always there were a bunch of new dishes from the ever forward moving team here alongside some of our favourite classics.

I can’t think of any reason not to come back ro Disfrutar again and again. And again. This time for the signatures, but also some brand new stuff, as hot as any of their creations. Every single dish is a dream coming true!

It is always impossible to sum up all the amazing flavors,
Ideas, creative extravaganza and unique solutions and techniques in a Disfrutar meal! This time I had a huge amount of brand new dishes (and also some signatures, luckily), and these guys just can’t stop being awesome! Always a must in Barcelona!
Will try to explain more details in my next posts, stay tuned!

These are two collages of some of the dishes I had at Disfrutar in two meals, and by no means all. Pic 1 are dishes I have yet to post, pic 2 are those I posted before. If I were to post every dish it will take another two, three weeks 😅, but I think by now you get the idea of how amazing Disfrutar is. Their food is not just about using new gadgets or techniques to make some unconventional dishes. Their dishes are about provoking intellectual, mental and physical (your palate) reactions, things...

I was lucky enough to visit ⭐️⭐️ @disfrutarbcn in Barcelona a couple more times before Christmas within the space of just a couple of weeks (full review with all pics & wine is up on my Facebook now, link in bio ☝🏻) So this post covers both meals. It really blows my mind the level of creativity at this restaurant. I mean, the chefs are ex-El Bulli so maybe I shouldn’t be that surprised. But bare in mind that they run two menus, one consisting of their more classic signature... More

A Barcelona restaurant that has featured regularly on my annual best dishes list is @disfrutarbcn I never had the chance to visit #elbulli but through the ingenious & inventive molecular cuisine of @eduardxatruch , @oriolcastroforns & Mateu Casañas I get a glorious glimpse of what it would have been like. A firm favourite of mine when in Barcelona. Or Spain for that matter, I flew from Bilbao and back last month just to eat their food again. I’m addicted... More

Just a few of the 30(!) brilliant courses last night at @disfrutarbcn last night. Truly, one of the greats. So impressed by everything from the minute I walked in the door. Service was impeccable. They have transcended modernism into pure creativity. After the meal, we had an extensive tour of their studio and test kitchen where amazingly detailed planning and experimentation happens. So good, I’m going back in for lunch again tomorrow, to try an entirely different menu.

on 31 Mar 2019

And I almost forgot the amazing beverage pairing that went with the 29 courses @disfrutarbcn
Not quite 29 different wines, sakes, ciders & sherries but 14 isn’t too bad 🍷 🍸 . .

The master of molecular cuisine. Every time I go there they seem to be better. I am looking forward to my next visit.

Few restaurants can implement molecular gastronomy techniques, presentation and taste successfully. In addition to accomplishing this, Disfrutrar served us a seamless symphony of dishes, sometimes giving my son a dish I had already tried, while serving me something new.

Afterwards, they invited us to their Innovation Lab where they brainstorm their dishes, menus and presentation. They also work with local culinary students. This room had binders containing photos of all their past dishes. There... More
