Food and drink
There are occasional seasonal variations on the menu, but stalwarts are the organic botifarra (sausage) or ou remenat (scrambled egg with asparagus and shrimp). A blackboard also lists simple tapas (fresh anchovies, olives) and daily specials. Cheese-lovers should order the tasting platter, which includes a wickedly strong blue cheese from Asturias. The wine list is short but includes some great bottles from lesser-known Spanish vineyards.
Small, bright and painted sunshine-yellow, Mam i Teca isn’t really the place for a romantic date, but it is friendly and unpretentious.
Alfons makes a gracious host, enthusiastic about the provenance of what he serves.
C/Lluna can be a bit tricky to find, and, while it’s not dangerous, this isn’t really a great neighbourhood to be hanging around consulting a map – try and memorise the route before you set off.
There’s something for every budget here, but you’ll find it hard to spend more than about 30 euros a head, including wine.
