CLOSED FOR SUMMER VACATION UNTIL SEPTEMBER 1st
One of the best places for tapas in the city.
When the current economic crisis first began to take hold Morryssom’s made headlines in national newspapers for offering an anti-crisis menú del día (fixed-price lunch) for just € 1.
It’s a very popular spot with locals, especially at lunchtime, and you may have to wait for a table, especially if you want to sit outside. You can book ahead.
And, they also serve some of the best tapas in Barcelona – including a few dishes which I’ve never seen in any other bar-restaurant in the city.
One of their specialties worth trying is zarajo, which originates from Cuenca – lamb’s intestines, skewered and grilled.
They serve a reliably very good economical three course lunch (€ 9 incl. bread, side-salad, a carafe of house wine and a bottle of gaseosa and a dessert or coffee).
During a recent visit, after a complimentary tapa of mixed olives, I had paella as a first course followed by breaded veal with chips and a side-salad, and an excellent chocolate cake for dessert. Bargain.
Service is very good and the staff very patient and very friendly.
In the evening it’s a good spot for meeting up with friends for chat, tapas and a bottle of wine. They serve some excellent wines here. I recommend a Montsant.
