Oriol Balaguer, along with being a renowned baker, he Is a brand that hides his marriage composed by the baker that gives the name to his work and his wife, cook and social: Marta Rams. A product created and settled was the croissant as an obligatory creation to see if you will visit the city of Barcelona. You also do not need to forget about his prized panettones… his historically and most recommended elaboration.
The name Oriol Balaguer is associated with the world of quality sweets, just like the bakery or even the chocolate shop. In the roots of the restaurant Quatre Coses, they also offer salty options. You can affirm that this restaurant is the culmination of Oriol Balaguer.
After 16 years of marriage and 6 local bakeries, they decided to open a restaurant just a few months ago that will also be offering salty options. This is now a local that offers the option to eat breakfast lunch, dinner, and to snack, open from 9h to 23h. This is a restaurant whose kitchen is made of products that occupy the role of the protagonist.
The personal enjoyment of this couple resides on them going out and eating together “cuatro cosas” (four things) in a bar and with good and delicious food. Being exactly this that they have created, closing the gastronomy circle and a mark that they have imagined over many years.
Some plates to be noted are the langostinos over croquettes of curry and coconut, where the béchamel transports you to Thailand, thanks to the texture and its strong flavor. The texture and the mellowness of the eggplant miso are also worth mentioning. In short, this is a delicious menu where you can also find classics like patatas bravas and alcachofas with ham.
Quatre Coses is a restaurant that counts on exhibitors that present their famous desserts and pastries but also accompany those with artisanal food and fresh bread. The entire Oriol Balaguer brand in one table in an entire meal.
