El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic
spots in the entire city. A sense of humble

Hello Phil, thank your for contacting us. The only dish we use bread crumbs and eggs is for the codfish and for our desserts. The rest of our dishes aren't cooked with milk or butter, just olive oil. Thank you!
