Xiringuito Escribà was founded in 1992, the year that the Olympic Games were held in Barcelona. Escribà offers a fantastic view over Bogatell beach and the sea.
The restaurant is best known for it’s paella and rice dishes, but founder Joan Escribà is also famous for hailing from the famous baking family behind the Pastelería Escribà Gran Via which dates back to 1906. This explains the fabulous deserts at this restaurant.
Try the Sardines a la planxa (grilled sardines with smoked oil, garlic, and parsley) and the Arroz caldoso con bogavante (rice broth with lobster). This video shows the master in action and reveals his ingedients: Joan Escribà cooking a paella.
