Cooking is sometimes considered to be an art. In the case of the restaurant Alkimia, the chef, Jodri Vilà, can now add artist to his resume.
With a white plate serving as a canvas, the food then creates a masterpiece with its colors and sauces added with the stroke of a paint brush. It’s not only a site for the eyes, but a treasure for the tastebuds.
Alkimia is like a museum that exhibits the finest mediterranean cuisine with its diverse selection of delicacies serving as its mouth-watering art.
Once inside, we noticed there are modern white tables and chairs set out in front of the open kitchen. This design piques the curiosity by offering a sneak peak of the chefs in action. Opposite this room is a dimmer and more cosy area for bar seating. Here your eyes are drawn to the chic dot-covered wall that creates the image of a mischievous fish. From there, the corridor turned our necks upward to admire the curved metal beams that form the roof. Finally, there is one wall that takes the cake, or should I say the spices. This wall contains a selection of spices, each in its own test tube as if to be used by an alchemist. Alkimia’s design is certainly in keeping with its name.
With its 5 star reviews, exotic decor, and delicious food, Alkimia takes mediterranean cuisine to another level.
It’s a taste of Barcelona that you won’t want to miss out on.
Alkimia is located on Rhonda Sant Antoni 41, in El Raval.
