I managed the "The Magic Flute" restaurant for 10 years in Borne Barcelonés, where we served dishes from different Asian countries merged with Basque and vegetarian cuisine.
Most of the dishes I like to serve are based on my various trips around the world but with a taste of my roots. I can also take you for a visit to the Boqueria market, just nearby, before lunch, visit it, choose the ingredients and make a workshop in my kitchen where you learn to prepare various dishes I prepare.
My apartment is located in the center of Barcelona, 3 minutes from La Rambla and the Columbus statue, in the Gothic Quarter and next to all the interesting things in the old part of the city.
We joined Pablo in his apartment near LA Rambla for dinner. He has a very lovely space with music and candle light overlooking the City. Pablo is a photographer and a former chef. His English is very good making it easy for us to have a conversation. He is from the Basque country and we had a good review of the geography and history of the area. We started with a simple appetizer of Humos and bread and wine from Reberia, followed by a very interesting Tibetian salad (see photo) that paired peanuts and puffed rice with a mélange of vegetables- very nice! The main course was a Basque stew of potatoes, carrots and fish. Postre was fruit and a thick chocolate sauce. We talked over coffee until 22:00. It was everything we hoped for in a Bonappetour evening - a lovely and welcoming home, friendly and intelligent host and tasty and interesting dinner. We would recommend Pablo to others!
