At Cinc sentist restaurant the 5th sense is family values.

R0013161

In the modern world of build, spin and flip the values of tradition is something I really appriciate. The fastest way to create tradition is to set up a family business, you instantly have family heritage. When I stepped into Cincsentist in Barcelona I knew I had come to place where people care. The material attention to detail was high, but here it was the human element that aired. Amèlie Artal greeted us in perfect english, slightly puzzled, we found out she was native of Canada and had worked at Netscape and was well versed in technology, she had joined her brother, the chef, Jordi Artal and their mother in a real family venture Cincsentits.

The place is a narrow, yet airy place, the mother (I who I did not catch the name of) said they had actually removed tables and one could feel the space. A brave move in a downturn, but I got the feeling they had decided to outlive bad times and create a culinary icon.

R0013176 We decided follow Amèlie’s advice and have the 7 course tasting menu with their wines selection. It made things easy, we had after all had a super though week and wanted to unwind with good food, fun stories and lots of laughter. We laughed so much we almost fell off our chairs. The tasting menu was a great choice. Several of the dishes were really amazing. I was particularly fond of the foie gras on a crispy cracker with onion comfit and with a sweet glacing. It was simply perfect. I like the deep flavour of the oxtail, which had been cooked for 36hours. The Scallop was great. The mint sorbet on top of cubes of granny smith apples was super fresh and wonderful in colour. The beuty of this sampling menu is that each portion is small and one is not stuffed after the meal, only a bit tipsy after all that good wine, so if you only want a culinary experience you need to leave wine in the glass after each course ;-)

R0013209 We had a great chat with Jordi, Amèlie and their lovely mother. Jordi is a self-taught chef, a massive talent, who clearly can progress further. It was great hearing their story of moving back to Spain and setting up a restaurant in Barcelona and aim for the highest standard. Guide Michelin recognised their effort and awarded the team a star in 2008.
