Dos Palillos, Asian Snack bar in Raval
Tagged as an Asian snack bar this place will sure make an impression on the culinary scene in Barcelona. Just opened on May 1, 2008 it is located next to the Camper hotel in Raval. Apart from the fact that the entire staff wears camper shoes, there is no direct connection between the 2 says Albert Rauric (former head chef at El Bulli).
The entrance to the bar (designed by the same people that did the hotel) is a homage to local bars made with prefab industrial elements turned into style icons.
The real ´bar´ restaurant in the back is like a dim lit sushi bar where you´ll witness the chefs Raurich, Takeshi and the rest of the staff preparing your food. The tasting menu for dinner is about 60 euros without drinks and you´ll get about 10 dishes. All heavily inspired by Japanese and Asian cuisine.
If you´re with more than 2 persons try to get one of the corners of the bar so you can have a conversation whilst enjoying the extravagant delicacies. Good wine list.
