El Tarantín, Caribbean cuisine, Eixample
The new Caribbean flavoured restaurant El Tarantín is a hearty project by the owners Miguel Portillo and Paola Di Meo, both with roots from Venezuela.
AT FIRST SIGHT – El Tarantín, Caribbean cuisine, Eixample
The name El Tarantín comes from the Venezuelan slang for street/beach bar where they serve humble and savoury street food. That is what El Tarantín brings to Barcelona, a warm breeze of Caribbean food made with love and creativity.
They have a la carte menu with dishes representing different countries around the Caribbean; Cuba, Jamaica, Republica Dominicana, Puerto Rico, Venezuela to name a few.
During the week they have a good value set menu for 12,95€, that is totally worth checking out!
The interior at this serious-Caribbean-food restaurant is modern, minimalistic and relaxed. The focus is on the colourful food.
Paola that works the floor make you feel welcome and right at home entering El Tarantín. Miguel that has the kitchen under control, salutes you when you pass by.
DISHES TRIED AND TESTED – EL TARANTÍN
On our visit, Paola guided us to a perfect selection of plates to share filled with Caribbean flavours;
Favourite dish? The prawn cocktail, it threw me back to my stay in the Caribbean eating this delicious cocktail on the warm sandy beach.
