Wasn't convinced when a friend dragged us off our route into this spot tucked away in El Born. The furnishings in the bar as you enter from the street give a slightly rustic impression, almost as though you are entering a bit of a timewarp. Then you go down the stairs and it's gorgeous. There are Roman ruins under the glass sections of the floor and the ambience is just fabulous. Plenty of fresh air and charming African ladies taking care of business. And the business must surely boom, as these ladies sure know how to cook up a storm. We shared a prawn & rice dish (cous cous is an option if you don't want rice) and it was divino! Having been warned that the jar of spice to add at will was very hot, we foolishly put a little on the bread whilst waiting for the rice and the result was hilarious. All three of us in various states of general discomfort, sweating furiously and breathing fire. Then the prawns came and all was just perfect. The combo of the spice with the prawns was magical, so much so that we added a bit to the plate despite having had a headstart. It was easily one of the best meals of my life & I can't wait to go back.
