Three perfect places to try grilled onions, or calçots
Calçotada, or grilled onions season, usually attracts those who love traditional Catalan cuisine and are not afraid to get their fingers dirty in romesco sauce.
Below are three completely different restaurants in the vicinity of our hotel, where you can get to know the tradition and try a couple of dozen kalçots before they disappear from local markets:
1. Moli at La Escala, a team with 25 years of experience led by Jordi Jacas, who has cooked for the lodge of FC Barcelona, the Girona Auditorium and more.
2. El Carro Vell в Garrigàs – is a popular and bustling restaurant where you can come with a large group to enjoy simple Catalan cuisine.
3. Can Cassoletes в Pontós – an old farmhouse and a restaurant with 40 years of experience surrounded by nature, where, in addition to kalsots, bouillabaisse soup is especially worth trying.
