Tickets is one of Barcelona´s latest foodies hangouts but you will struggle to get in. After visiting Barcelona recently and knowingly not a hope in getting a reservation in El Bulli before it closes in July I looked on-line and found Tickets from Ferran Adria. When I read in one of the reviews that they were too busy to accept bookings it was great news so we headed down to Poble Sec early to beat the crowds. Unfortunately we were informed at the door that it is bookings only and the next available date is in August.
Conveniently enough, 100 meters away is the restaurant that used to be Albert Adriá´s, Lolita. Here you will find, apart from a queue, freshly created tapas made to order. There were some great bites to be had in this place. Some of the plates sampled were cured Wagyu which was good but nothing sensational, but I had high expectations for the acclaimed “wagyu”. A must try was their croquettes, made with squid and its ink in panko crumbs. Also, the truffled honey and yoghurt salmon pulga was fantastic. Make sure to accompany your tapas with a Catalunyan cava. The restaurant is very casual,there is only one actual table, the rest is a large bar with only stools to sit on. Prices are reasonable, two people comfortably eating with a bottle of cava for 30 euros a person. Overall a nice way to spend your evening in Barcelona.
