A recent restaurant making a splash in the culinary world of Barcelona is Tickets. The brainchild of the Adrià and Iglesias brothers, this exciting new addition to the city’s extensive restaurant list is a must-visit destination for gourmet lovers from all over the world.
Inspired by excitement and a desire to put the fun back into food, the culinary geniuses that make up this dream team have created a one-of-a-kind restaurant in which patrons are encouraged to truly enjoy the entire experience. A trip to Tickets means a journey of discovery, with the innovative chefs inviting guests to relax in a space dedicated to laughter, complicity and good company. And of course, mouth-wateringly good food.
At Tickets, diners can follow the traditional path and choose from the tapas menu (harder than it sounds, with so many enticing options), or go for the Surprise experience, where a host of exciting, inspiring treats is brought to the table one by one for guests’ delectation. From liquid olives served on funky silver spoons to mini Manchego cheese airbags and duck eggs with potato cream served in golden eggshells, the Tickets team never fail to surprise, intrigue and delight. Delicacies such as oysters, tomato cones, fried fish and rabbit tacos in a truly delicious sauce are also on offer, and are incredibly hard to resist.
Just when you think Tickets can’t get any better, out come the puddings. From a caramel and sorbet mélange dedicated to AC/DC, accompanied by an iPod playing Highway to Hell upping the excitement, to cheesecake, mango sorbet and a Living Forest, the puddings on offer at Tickets really do showcase inimitable creativity. Accompany these incredible dishes with a caña, wine or a chilled copa de cava, and you truly will be in culinary paradise.
Tables at Tickets must be booked 60 days in advance via the website www.ticketsbar.es, but trust us – it is well worth the wait. Couple your trip to Tickets with a stay at a Splendia hotel and you’ll be sure of a really indulgent city escape.
