Dos Palillos: Where Catalonia meets the east

Posted on 28th February 2012 by

Consider traditional Spanish tapas being influenced by the more delicate flavours of the Far East and what you will get is the delicious fusion of flavours to be found at Dos Palillos. Head chef, Albert Raurich is the one responsible for the delicious inspiration behind the Dos Palillos’ menu where you will find a creative mix of tapas and Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese overtures.

Seafood, fish, meats and vegetables fresh from the market form the basis of these dishes and you can expect to find them in tempura batter, steamed, cooked in a wok or grilled to perfection. Japanese burgers, Cantonese style Iberian pork, and prawn steamed dumplings are just a snapshot of the delicious meals on offer at Dos Palillos.

You can experience the best of Catalonia meeting East with a lunchtime menu of 20€. Dos Palillos can be found in the El Raval area of Barcelona, and is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 7.30 pm until 11.30 pm, and Thursday to Saturday from 1.30 pm until 11.30 pm.
