Quimet & Quimet
Patrons stand elbow-to-elbow at this tiny bustling tapas bar just off of Pral Lel. With walls of shelves filled with wine, this fifth generation restaurant is not much larger than a typical home dining room. Montaditos, or ingredients piled upon slices of bread, are the specialty here, second only to the house beer, a sweet, malty brew from Belgium. English menus are not prominently displayed, but available upon request, and most guests leave the menu selections up to the owner’s whims. Tapas could include shaved dried tuna, or mojama, and bacalao, dried and salted cod.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
