¡Hola! – Hoja Santa

Ensenada style sea urchin toast

I love Barcelona since the city brings together tastes from all over the world. With the amazing produce available there it is the perfect stage for a fusion of local and interntional tastes. One of the most influential kitchens in the last years has been the Mexican.

One of the first to make Mexican food a trend in haute cuisine was Albert Adrià. Hoja Santa in Barcelona has been awarded with one Michelin star and serves highly interesting dishes.

I loved the excellent seafood, their use of corn in many forms and the very deep sauces (the different moles, sauce biscayina). It may not have been the most memorable meal I’ve ever had, but it was a very interesting gastronomic experience I would revommend.
