Quimet Quimet

Barcelona. Hopping off the metro at stop 'Paral-lel'. So I knew this was going to be a good night!
Mr E took me to a very tiny little bar that serves the best tapas I've had in Barcelona to date.
Quimet Quimet is small, family business, understated, friendly, though they take their food seriously.
The one room standing-room-only bar only fits about 20-odd people, so get there bang on opening time, as we did to nab a table. We ordered a sublime glass of red then ordered a few dishes off their low key and quite understated menus. Everything we ordered sounded pretty basic, and as it turned up was exquisite to look at, and even more delightful to consume.
Every dish we had was prepared on the spot behind the bar and Mr E and I savored each dish as it was brought out to us.
Below, foie gras with volcanic salt, which was incredible. The New York Times agrees with me, you can read their review here.
Quimet Quimet: C/ Poeta Cabanyes, 25, 08004 Barcelona, Spain. Tel: +34 934 423 142
