MonDoré Gastronomic Brewery in Sant Antoni

The octopus with the parmentier we tested at MonDoré, a fantastic brewery in Sant Antoni, is one of the best we have ever had in recent months

MonDoré brewery is focused to all types of public, both for families with children looking for simple dishes such as pizzas or cocas, as well as business people looking for something more refined dishes. The menu contains from croquettes and patatas bravas, to more sophisticated dishes like the above-mentioned octopus or the syrupy with meat sauce cooked at low temperature.

As far as drinks are concerned, MonDoré offers up to 30 varieties of beer. In fact, it has its own craft beer, with 30% of hops that gives you the bitterness and a touch of honey and grapefruit. They make cocktails with or without alcohol and traditional sangria or with cava.

Our experience was very positive at this brewery. First we tried their beer and we were amazed, since neither of us are very fans of the craft beer in general, but we liked it a lot this one.

When they started to bring the dishes they put us a white garnacha wine, fruity and volatile, without much persistence in the mouth, but with a good acidity.

Our dinner consisted of:

  1. Iberian ham croquettes
  2. Crystalized leek with peanut romesco souce
  3. Tuna tataki with creamy avocado and seaweed salt
  4. Octopus “a la llauna” with carved potato
  5. Cheek veal with caramelized red onion
  6. The dessert… Oh the dessert…! Catalan cream foam on lemon ice cream and French toast with yogurt ice cream. Delicious.

The guests of The Urban Suites have a walk, from our tourist apartments in Barcelona to MonDoré, of only 10 minutes.

Argot BCN

Would you like to enjoy a brunch in Sant Antoni at a reasonable price? Then go to Argot BCN

Bocatería Argot

If there is something that characterizes to Argot BCN is its sandwiches, as Argot is not the typical place to go to eat a Spanish ham sandwich or the traditional “bikini” (Catalan sandwich with sweet ham and cheese). No. It’s a place to go to enjoy every bite you give to the sandwich you choose, because they have been delicately caring of that for you to feel the flavors of each of the ingredients.

5 excellent halal restaurants in Barcelona

Many of our guests come from Arab cultures and ask for halal restaurants in Barcelona

Thali - Bombay Spicy

Thali – pictures from Bombay Spicy

For this reason, we have encouraged ourselves to write this post, because more than once we asked them: what is halal?

The word “Halal” in Arabic means lawful and its application to gastronomy describes those foods and beverages that in Muslim culture are allowed to eat and accepted by Islamic law.

According to halal food authority, “since pork is forbidden, halal slaughtering must not be done where pigs are slaughtered or in the vicinity of pigs slaughtering area. There are a few more edicts and rules that have to be followed in the interest of animal welfare. For example, animal has to be fed as normal and given water prior to slaughter, one animal must not see the other being slaughtered, knife should be four times the size of the neck and razor sharp, and as far as possible the slaughterer and the animal should face the Qibla or Mecca and the animal must not be suffering from any ailments or any lacerations.” 

Then we leave our selection of halal restaurants in Barcelona:
