La Mundana de Sants and its highly creative cuisine

Just a few steps from the biggest train station in Barcelona, you will find la Mundana de Sants (“Society” in English). This place calls itself a “gastropub” and offers fusion cuisine influenced by French, Japanese and Mediterranean cooking, otherwise known as the perfect blend of finesse, flavour, originality and freshness!

At la Mundana de Sants, the chefs juggle modern and traditional styles and play around with different cooking methods. The result is nothing short of astounding!

  • For info: in 2016, la Mundana de Sants was voted best restaurant by the readers of the newspaper El Periódico! Bravo!

The menu at Mundana de Sants

The dishes

At la Mundana de Sants, choosing a dish is a perplexing process! What do you do when everything is so appetizing? It is very likely that, like me, even after carefully studying the menu you will still change your mind three times.

The menu has a wide range of meats, vegetables, fish and shellfish, combined with some very interesting ingredients!

Among the must-haves, let yourself be tempted by its surprise eggs, Asian calamari or tasty patatas bravas (totally unrecognizable if you have already tasted the classic version of this typical dish). Presented as ingots crowned with smoked aioli and brava sauce, they are delicious!

  • We then had a delicious ceviche, the crab, avocado and apple tacos, and the magnificent strawberry and basil mochi for dessert (main photo). Everything was absolutely delicious!
  • Our only regret? Not having the appetite to try everything on the menu!

The star drink: vermouth

La Mundana de Sants

is a vermutería, so vermouth is the star of the show. In total there are 14 different types of vermouth to choose from (“blancos” or “negros”). Don’t hesitate to ask the staff, if you need advice!

  • I tried the Mirrha vermouth (the least sweet), a real treat!

If you’re not crazy about this drink, don’t worry! There is also a vast array of wines and Cavas to choose from.

The price of the dishes is not the most economical, but given the quality and originality of the offering, they are very reasonable!

  • Starters are priced between 8 euros and 14, mains between 12 and 14 euros and desserts around 7 euros.
  • Expect to pay around 4 euros for a vermouth or a glass of wine.
  • Due to the small size and open kitchen, the restaurant offers a very friendly atmosphere.
  • Booking is required at least 48 hours in advance.
  • The restaurant is often full and sometimes a little noisy as a result.
  • Right at the back of the restaurant is a little terrace where diners can smoke or simply get some fresh air!
