Rekons, an ode to pies
One of the most enjoyable parts of this time of year is the urge to start battening down the hatches and plumping for hearty, warming dishes – comfort food that warms the cockles and melts the heart; chicken soup for the soul.
Rekons is the ideal pit stop if you are anywhere between the Raval and Eixample areas and looking for a fill of homemade goodness. Situated in the antique Canigó deli, where the original facade remains, fresh croissants and juice on the sunlit terrace make for the perfect start to any day. An afternoon beer and fresh empanada would also hit the spot.
Specializing in homemade Argentinian pies in a smorgasbord of flavours (aubergine and cheese, spicy chorizo, chicken and leek, tomato and basil, beef and pumpkin….), it is a traditional establishment that prides itself on simplicity, quality ingredients and excellent value for money, reflected in the unfussy menu and friendly attitude of the staff. Prices are around 2€ per pie (which are surprisingly large and filling), or 10€ for the menú, a selection of three pies with salad.
