In his new restaurant bearing his own name, Michelin-star chef Xavier Pellicer proudly strives to make each dish a piece of art, from the way the food is arranged to the chinaware it is placed on. Using techniques such as wok, various spices and chargrilling, his cuisine can be best described as biodynamic; the ingredients are local, fresh, free of chemicals, and also have added vitality. This is definitely a very satisfying gastronomic experience that is both tasty and healthy. Among Pellicer’s favorites are the gazpacho and cauliflower puree.
If you are planning to come to Barcelona and have a perfect day, we recommend you to first come and try an AIRE Experience before you go to any of the most incredible vegan restaurants.
