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 (with lobster) 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.
