Albert Raurich from the prestigious El Bulli, shows that Asian and Spanish tapas can make a perfect pair, and a level of product excellence and creativity that has earned him his first Michelin star. Dos Palillos is a perfect fusion between Bar in the corner and the Asian tavern, a place that has no tables and where, if the waiters do not have time, you are not served the wine. Reflection: part of the Michelin star always rewards the service, and as they have it, the value is for sure in their phenomenal Asian tapas.
