Time Out says
Hoja Santa, plainly and simply put, is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Barcelona. Albert Adrià and Mexican chef Paco Méndez approach popular Mexican tradition with an outlook and products that are both haute cuisine, and from there they manage to get surprising dishes such as the cep mushroom and truffle quesadilla, and the wagyu veal with chichilo mole. Where they really shine is in the gourmet work with vegetables, with dishes that play with the classics – try the pasilla mole with crunchy baby veg.
Though Albert Adrià's next-door taco bar, Niño Viejo, closed its doors in 2019, the Hoja Santa menu keeps some of the delights alive with a selection of tacos, including the steamed chicken taco with mole, which will have you shouting '¡Viva Mexico!' with your first bite.
