Hoja Santa

One of Albert Adrià's many restaurants in Barcelona. Ferran Adrià's little brother has stepped out of his big brother's shadow and started a number of excellent restaurants in Barcelona. Among them, Hoja Santa, which is a marvelous restaurant and one of our absolute favorites in the Catalan capital. The restaurant serves Mexican dishes at the highest level in an artistic format, playing with some of the Adrià-brothers classic dishes like their spherical olives (aceitunas esféricas) and serving world-class Mexican food, like their fabolous tacos. We recommend that you try their excellent taco cochinita pibil inflada.
