It's already time for the sixth edition of Tast a La Rambla, the culinary festival that takes place along the bottom part of La Rambla, this time from Thursday June 6 to Monday June 10. The fair includes the participation of some 40 restaurants, spread out over different zones: tapas and small dishes, traditional cuisine, signature cuisine, metropolitan cuisine and desserts. The event is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to try top dishes from many great Barcelona chefs and restaurants at the affordable price of €4 each.
And the offering is no joke, as you'll even get to sample cuisine from restaurants with Michelin stars: Nectari is putting on an Alaska wild salmon tartare, with avocado, ikura and sprouts; Xerta, experts in seafood, presents rice from the Ebro Delta with 'cap i pota' (head and hoof) stew; and the gang at Enoteca Paco Pérez (in the Hotel Arts) offer up garlic and pepper eel. But here those shiny stars aren't as important as the fact that big-name chefs in Barcelona are putting all their talent into a single plate and giving it their best shot. And that's what La Rambla is full of: the cod cannelloni with chlorophyll and tomato pil-pil sauce from A Restaurant, and the red tuna tartare tacos with guacamole and chipotle mayonnaise from Telefèric will have you drooling in the street.
Besides offering scrumptious food, there will also be a multipurpose stage next to the food zone that hosts a variety of activities for all, including workshops, live cooking shows, and much more.
