An offshoot of a Michelin-starred restaurant without the usual fine dining pretence

With a history dating back 150 years, Restaurant Gaig is a stalwart of Catalan cooking. Its well-loved family recipes have earned it a Michelin star in Barcelona and now it's brought Catalonian fare to our shores.

The small space feels like home. Simply decorated with pieces that look like they were picked up from a flea market in La Rambla, Gaig makes subtle nods to its heritage without screaming "you are in a Spanish restaurant – order paella and dance the flamenco". 

That's not to say you can't. You'll find the likes of pluma ibérica and mushroom paella ($28.20) and lobster paella ($78.80) on the menu, but opt for the more uncommon squid ink fideua ($29.50) instead. Prepared the same way as paella, except with spaghetti instead of rice, the fideua is a mix of vegetables and roasted garlic that explode in your mouth as you bite down on the charred pasta tossed in squid ink. 

Gaig's signature suckling pig ravioli with truffle sauce ($32.80) shouldn't be missed either. A thin and delicate layer of pasta encases shreds of tender pork and the whole thing is bathed in a decadent truffle cream sauce that will have you rolling your head back in delight.
