If you’re looking to have your culinary palette taken out of its comfort zone with inventive, surprising and exquisite flavours, then head to Comerc 24 in the trendy Born district for the most refined gourmet tapas in Barcelona. Having studied for years under chef Ferran Adria at Spain’s world famous restaurant El Bulli restaurant, chef Carles Abellan and his team have developed a cult following for their perfectly formed small-plate gourmet tastes. Classic Catalan dishes are reinvented and infused with global flavours, where his signature delicacies include truffled onion soup with oysters and mushrooms marinated in olive oil, and mouth-watering tuna tartare with a rich egg-yolk vinaigrette. The decor is colourful and stylish, the Spanish-focused wine list impressive and the service team highly knowledgable. They also have a more casual and affordable tapas bar located downstairs, Tapac 24, which is a fun and boisterous place for delicious tapas.
