Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Iconoclastic and down-to-earth but also a gourmet eatery: Alberto Gacía Moyano (lawyer, bar lover and owner of Bar Bodega Carol) and chef Jordi Bernús (who's worked at El Bulli and El Drolma, and even been head chef for the Jordanian royal family!) have together opened Sants es Crema. Under this name (a translation of 'London's Burning' by The Clash which means 'Sants is Burning') they produce Anarchy on the Grill (according to the menu): a refined, concise collection of dishes with a touch of 'robata'(Japanese grill style) added at some point during their preparation plus some excellent pork products. There's a lot of fun, personal touches and adaptations of the traditional Catalan 'mar i muntanya' style of cooking, which combines seafood and meat. That means creations such as an oyster with pig trotter, sweetbreads with scallops, and pigeon with mussels and vinagrette. Although they also have some of the more mainstream concoctions, like a gourmet mountain rice with pork cheek. Water's free, and you can try the unique experience of ordering a 'kalimotxo' (Coca Cola with red wine, pronounced cal-ee-MO-cho) in a high-class restaurant.
