“You’ll see, you’ll love it. It’s super tasty and really not expensive! And the servers are also super nice.” This is what my friends said when they wanted me to check out Rekons.

Although I was already (almost) convinced, I still needed to see if it was worth it or if my friends were laying it on a bit thick. Turns out they were telling the truth: Rekons was worth all their praise.

on carrer Comte d’Urgell has a deli part where you can get empanadas to take away. But you can also eat there on the terrace or in the little upstairs room, although capacity is quite limited.

Rekons: a varied and appetising menu…

To eat…

Number one quality: Rekons offers a very diverse menu of mains, bocadillos, tapas, charcuterie and desserts with a little South American twist…The house specialty is even empanada.

  • Empanada is a very popular South American dish. It is a sort of meat- or cheese-filled fritter (see first photo).
  • At Rekons, empanadas are handmade and the fillings are very varied: chicken tuna, ham, cheese, vegetables… and they are as delicious as they are varied. Some people even say they are the best empanadas in Barcelona!
  • You can also find tapas, bocadillos or boards of cheese or cured meats. Yum!

To drink…

You can choose from red or white wine, cocktails and also hot drinks. If you have the bright idea to come here for an afternoon snack then treat yourself to the sweets, such as the alfajor, a delicious little round cake made with dulce de leche, that’s very popular in Chile and Argentina.

Second quality: the prices are as appealing as the menu. Empanadas are 2 euros, bocadillos between 3 and 5.50 euros and boards between 4.50 and 12 euros depending on the size. The portions are very generous, so there is no chance of you being left wanting more!

In terms of drinks, the cocktails are good if a little heavy (mojito, caipirinha and piña colada) and cost 6.50 euros. A glass of wine costs between 2.50 and 3 euros, as does beer.

  • You might have grasped that the aim of Rekons is to allow you to treat yourself without breaking the bank.
