Fodor's Expert Review Cal Xim

$$ Barcelona Spanish
This ordinary-looking village restaurant is the preferred dining place for many winemakers in the Penedès region, less than a one-hour drive from Barcelona. The traditional Catalan cuisine here is as good as anywhere, with a vast wood grill adding a smoky touch to dishes such as escalivada (grilled vegetables) with romesco sauce. The faux burger of pig's trotter sounds awful but tastes sensational. Desserts, including a note-perfect crema catalana, are equally good. Owner Santi keeps a wine cellar to please even the most demanding enophiles.
