Last week, we made a short visit to 41º Cocktail bar in Barcelona, Spain, owned by Spanish chefs, Ferran & Albert Adria. 41º is a very singular place, a classic Cocktail Bar but with a unique and very creative gastronomy – here the creativity has no limits! The entrance to Ferran Adria 41º Cocktail Bar, which is situated on the Parallel in Barcelona, is discreet and gives the suggestion that it is a private club, but behind this somewhat austere and secretive façade we discovered a tiny bar with masses of personality.
At 41º we shared Spanish chefs, Ferran & Albert Adria´s classics such as Corte Helado de Parmesano (parmesan ice cream), Air-baguette de Jamon Iberico (air baquette of Iberian Ham), mini-Mozarellas esfericas con albahaca (spherical mini-Mozarellas with basil). Then we moved on to Ferran & Albert Adria new creations for 41º Bar – Ostras con Salsa Ponzu (Oysters with Ponzu sauce), Huevas de Salmon con Clorofila y Fingerlime (Salmon eggs with Chlorophyll and Fingerlime), as well as a delicious small and crusty Crepe Pekin (Pekin Pancake). We accompanied all with a Margarita con Aire de Sal (Margarita with Salt Air) which made a perfect marriage with the Oysters.
Now after such a feast at 41º Cocktail Bar, we can’t wait for the opening of Spanish chef Ferran Adrias Tickets Tapas Bar, Barcelona (next door to 41º) in a few weeks, for more exciting gastronomical experiences!
