Small Place, Giant Taste

Posted: Jan. 28th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Small food places are often the greatest in the sense that they usually don’t have a high client base and they can concentrate on the preparation of the food a bit more then a mass production place. In Barcelona there is a place called El Passadis del Pep that is small and concentrates on their cuisine.

A hidden culinary sanctuary, El Passadís del Pep may be located in one of the most visited quarters of Barcelona, but it’s out of sight of anyone who isn’t looking for it. Once you go down the long corridor that leads to the restaurant, you don’t need to do anything, and that includes choosing what to eat. From the moment you sit down, the “house” offers you your first bottle of cava, and the celebration of food and life begins. There is no menu and there are no “daily specials,” just whatever Joan Manubens and his team decide to cook that day.

The restaurant, whose name means “Pep’s Corridor,” specializes in cocina de mercado, or market cuisine, prepared in a simple, traditional Mediterranean style.
