savor: Spain/ Barcelona

QUIMET & QUIMET
Poeta Cabanyes, 25
Barcelona
34/934.42.31.42

Opened in 1914 and passed down the family, this tiny space with a vast selection is always at the top of “best of…” lists. Tiny, with a big selection of enlatadas, things in tins. As they say, the best of the seafood catch goes in the tin, and Quimet & Quimet has the best of the best: mussels, clams, cockles, navajas (razor clams), mussels, line-caught bonito del norte, and so on. Numerous cheeses, too. Though I prefer to have a couple of always interesting montaditos (things “mounted” on a piece of bread) created for you from an array of simply top-quality materials at the bar.
Be warned: they close at 10:30 pm.
