Since Barrafina opened its second restaurant a two minute walk from where I work I’ve been there for lunch a few times. Last time I went with two colleagues and we had a lot of lovely food. So much that it was rather laborious to walk back to the office after lunch.
We started off with Jamon bellota and pan con tomato; actually one of the best pan con tomato I’ve had both in and outside of Spain. Perfect amount of garlic and the bread resists the wetness just enough.
Then we had these lovely crab croquetas.
And the tortilla with caramelized onions. So yum!
And extremely crispy smoked cod fritters with tartar sauce.
The fried artichokes was another favourite; so crispy and served with a lovely mayonnaise.
I can never resist the goat’s cheese stuffed courgette flowers with honey. Mmm…
And these ribs were delicious!! Good combination of salty and sweet in the sauce and the meat just fell off the bones. We also shared a pork belly with crackling and white beans with morcilla that I forgot to photograph, it was nice but the ribs were just amazing!
Although we were extremely full we couldn’t resist to share a plate of churros with cinnamon sugar and chocolate sauce. The perfect ending to a fabulous lunch!
