Everything comes alive in Barcelona- The food reflects its people- they are vibrant, emotional and unapologetic.
To me, a restaurant’s energy is so crucial -it has to become a space for dialogue- between people and with food
Bar Mut is noisy, chaotic and throbbing with energy. Chef Victor Lema, the hero of the restaurant, is smiling and thriving in this chaos- one can easily see that he takes energy and conversations as seriously as his food.
The coal oven: Smoke has a fragrance that adds to a dish and takes it a few notches up.
fried-Egg Carpaccio : Thinly spread yolk from a fried egg, topped with straw-fried potatoes, fat little prawns and chorizo oil. This was the most ordered dish in the restaurant and totally lives up to its name.
Another bottled wall
Spinach Salad with Walnuts, Spanish Tomatoes and a Balsamic Vinegar dressing
Hot Chocolate Lava Cake with Pistachio Ice-cream: I have a special love for pistachios thanks to my Iranian heritage.
