Yesterday was my day off and  decided to go to Pan & Oli ,is   a small restaurant just few steps from my house in the heart of the district of Sants .

For lunch they offer a Menú del dia(daily set menu) where you can choose between 3 starters,3 mains courses and 3 deserts.
As a regular guest Carlos the chef give me an extra amuse bouche .Something that looked  like  an ice cream , a cone of aubergine ,filled with a jam of romesco  and covered with a mousse of goat cheese.
I was amazed after  trying it , it was  astonishing ,all the flavours get well together .
Then Eva the waitress bring me the aperitif of the menú a mousse of mussels with some crostini , very tasteful

As a starter I choose  organic egg with sobrasada (cured spice sausage) and dulce de membrillo (quince cheese) another time different flavours,spiceness ,sweeteness  and creaminess made from  the egg well combined between them that made a simple dish something out of this world.

As a  main course I choose the filet of beef with a mustard sause .The meat was cooked to the  right point  and the sauce combine  very well  with it .

To refresh the palate as a desert had a fruit textures : apple puré,confited pears and peach ice cream with some popping candies  to make it more  fizzy

As  headline I used the word Gastronomic because in Bareclona  the majority of  the restaurants offer the  Menú del dia  ,but in the end the all  serve the same dishes and here at Pan & Oli you can find the difference .Carlos make it different with a gourmet touch .
I didn't say yet the price ,well the menú cost 11.20€ and there are some special dishes  with the over price of 2.50 €.
For dinner they  have  a la carte menú,with tapas you need to try their patatas bravas ,burgers ,cocas (salted pastry ) and tipical catalan dishes
This restaurant is not far from the Camp Nou so you can visit it after your tour of the FC BARCELONA world or if you are by the train station of Sant Estacion

Hours :13am-16pm , 20-00pm ,closed on Monday
