kermis (418) Where the wild whales are, Netherlands | July 6, 2016
Visited on a Tuesday afternoon. A small, dark and fairly cramped place with an Asian kitchen. A small selection of local beers on tap and a fair selection of bottles though with no real surprises. A lot of the standard Belgian stuff here with German beers, a few Brewdogs and more local bottles such as Edge brewing. Oh and there’s some Sake too. Prices are reasonable on the tap beers though I didn’t look at the bottle prices of food.
Located in El Born the place and the surrounding streets are bustling with life in the evening. However if you want to grab a place it may be wiser to make a reservation because it’s usually packed. They do have a decent selection of beers, but wouldn’t consider it a beer place. They didn’t have a clue which glass to use for Thornbridge St Petersburg, good thing is they asked. Also not sure about the food serving hours during the day - we’ve visited in the afternoon and were told the kitchen is closed. There were no English menus while we were visiting (back in 2013). Food is very good, roasted duck is a must.
A very little chinese/asian tapas bar that has become a trendy spot in Barcelona for a couple of years now, which makes it very difficult to get a table in the weekend evening, you must wait for an hour or even more. They happen to have a decent but short selection of beers in bottle. Although some of the beers in the menu have not been available for more than a year you can still have an Orval or a Val-Dieu at a decent price with your dumplings. The roasted duck is a must. Beware of the service, they are not very professional.
