On the prowl for Catalán cuisine, we sought out the flagship of MUSSOL Restaurante's four locations: the restaurant on Carrer Casp, 19, in Barcelona's Centro district (Metro: Passeig De Gràcia or Urquinaona).
We started out with the traditional Catalán coca (toasted bread with olive oil, garlic, and tomato). For the main dishes, I ordered pato (which means duck in Castellano), but my "duck" was decidedly beefy tasting, so I was a bit confused to say the least. It came paired with some lovely roasted apples.
Overall, MUSSOL has a reputation for serving traditional farmhouse food in a big city setting. Prices per person average 15,00€. It's worth a try!
