Codding around

By Brian Gallagher 06.04.16

When the possibility of eating healthily and also discovering (or making a return visit) to some of the best restaurants in Barcelona are combined then anybody who is interested in food should be paying attention. This is the premise behind the fourth edition of the ‘Ruta del Bacalao’ which not only includes 34 restaurants which have all come up with a special menu or tapas for the event but also the ‘bacaladerías’, where cod is cut and cured, located in several of the most iconic markets dotted around the city, including Perelló1898.

From March 31st until April 17th Barcelona residents and visitors can take advantage of the opportunity to participate in this culinary and gastronomic event organized by the Guild of cod in Catalonia with the collaboration of Inedit.
