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.
