Morryssom's Barcelona

Morryssom’s – More than Morteruelo

One of the best places for tapas in the city.

Morryssom’s is 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, grilled and served with lemon.

Their clams are also really very tasty and excellent value. And, again, a tapa you do not see so often in the city, codorniz, (quail) is also very good.

They also serve a reliably very good economical three course lunch (€ 9.50 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 are 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. And, they are now open week nights until 01:00.

Buen provecho!
