Llamber Taberna Gastronómica – a culinary delight
Llamber Taberna Gastronómica
Carrer de la Fusina 5
933 196 250
Upon entering Llamber Taberna Gastronómica, a new restaurant on Carrer Fusin, you know that you are somewhere special. The break out area with tables and stools, ideal for a quick bite or just for drinks, is adjacent to the window that looks out on to the soon to be finished market. The space is much larger in reality, with it’s high ceilings, exposed brick walls. It was in fact a former fruit and vegetables warehouse and some of the original features have been preserved in the interior design. This includes the old doors that would’ve led to the large fridges and then there are shutters just above where the open plan kitchen takes center stage in the restaurant.
The menu at Llamber has been specifically designed in a way to make it easy to compartir (share) with others, a nice details, as choosing so many inviting dishes from the table can prove very difficult otherwise. Carefully crafted in a way that you have an element of surprise dishes like the otoño ensalada (autumn salad) are simply named simply as that, with no further details as to the ingredients include.
We went ahead with the chef’s recommendation of fondue de parmesano con langostinos y trigueros, which is served on sticks making it easy to share (annoyingly). The tuna teriyaki was delicious, again presented like mini works of art, making it hard not to get excited about the next plate that comes to your table. Fran Heras (chef and gastronomical director who deviously worked with Ferrán Adriá “El Bulli”) and Eva Arbonés (head chief and interior designer) are behind the new restaurant, bringing personal style to the gastronomical experience.
Additional special touches include benches from the former bullring, used as a shelving unit behind the bar and reclaimed wood utilised as a backdrop in the restaurant – impressive and interesting restorations that not only makes this place interesting but helps to create this A+ restaurant. The kitchen is open from 1pm until 12am, and we thoroughly recommend that you experience this culinary delight for yourself.
