A place to visit

The word “tortillería” might be a little misleading when used to describe this Barcelona locale.

The Spanish omelet (“tortilla”) is a humble plate which nonetheless permits as many sophisticated variations as the “French” omelet. This restaurant, which specializes in tortillas, is anything but modest. First of all, the restaurant dates back to the 1960s when it was at the forefront of the Barcelona culinary scene. Also, it is set apart by its design. Everything is in white and decorated with portraits of a model in black; photos which deserve a prize of their own. Third, after the passing of the years and losing its “modernist” appeal, it has become the haunt of the wealthy and elderly that flock there for informal weekend meals. It’s like fast-food for beautiful (and wrinkled) people.

The culinary offer is very ample and, aside from Spanish omelets, there are also hamburgers, meat and fish dishes, and desserts. The menu is eclectic and since there’s something for everyone, you’ll always find something appetizing. The preparation is always good (and, at times, great) and I’ve never heard any complaints about the quality.

The place is very fun and has an air of nostalgia, although it can be somewhat uncomfortable since the tables are very close together. The clientele are typically posh and come from the well-born families of Barcelona and it’s not unusual to spot a politician or celebrity dining there. While that’s not my favorite thing in the world, it is what it is.

The prices reflect the nature of the place, but don’t get too put off as it’s a reminder that the ingredients are top-quality and the service is very, very professional. The kitchen is somewhat slow but you must keep in mind that Spanish omelets, the most popular menu items, take their time in cooking from scratch. So, when the restaurant is packed (as it usually is) you can count on a decent wait before the food comes out.

Despite all its faults, it’s a historic and glamorous restaurant that’s worth a visit.

Great design

I’ve gone to Flash Flash a few times and I must admit that, until yesterday, my interest in the place was more for the design than the food.

This well-designed locale has been open for almost 50 years but always has a touch of modernity and the avant-garde. But yesterday’s food (even though it took almost 45 minutes to reach the table) was absolutely delicious.

My menu included a Spanish omelet with cured meats (delicious), a breaded pork cutlet (exquisite), and Flash Flash’s eponymous cheesecake. Words aren’t sufficient to accurately describe how wonderful that dessert was! Mmmm!
