4.5

A tiny tapas restaurant in the Raval that sources from small producers.

Mam i Teca has a short menu and only a handful of tables, but what it does it does well. Owner Alfons sources the best of local produce, buying organic wherever possible, and takes a pride in revitalising old recipes.

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.

Ambience

Small, bright and painted sunshine-yellow, Mam i Teca isn’t really the place for a romantic date, but it is friendly and unpretentious.

Service

Alfons makes a gracious host, enthusiastic about the provenance of what he serves.

Location

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.

Price advice

There’s something for every budget here, but you’ll find it hard to spend more than about 30 euros a head, including wine.
