My first experience dining in at a "World's 50 Best" listed restaurant was here (rated #20 as of this writing). Actual dine-in date: 3/6/2019. Whenever traveling internationally I try my best to experience one "special occasion" meal. It may or may not be a chef's table or fine dining experience, but the restaurant would have enough accolades for people to schedule their itineraries or even plane tickets on a reservation. In the case of Barcelona I am a huge Europhile and a United Cyber Monday deal had me already going here but it was in the case of Tickets that I scheduled my entire trip around the reservation. Compared to TFL and Noma scoring tickets here was slightly easier... but not by much. Reservations are available up to 60 days to the date of dine-in and open up at 12AM exactly. At the time you had to not only be on the website at midnight local time, your computer time also had to match the local time in order for the reservation system to work. You could be SOL as early as 5 minutes afterwards so it's best to try out a "practice run" beforehand. Also keep in mind that the minimum party size is 2. Being a solo traveler I reached out to a girls travel FB group for a dining partner. This ended up being one of the best things that ever happened on my travels. Dress code: smart casual. For background research I highly recommend watching Netflix's "Chef's Table" season 5 episode 4 on Albert Adrià. As one of the two Adrià brothers he was instrumental to the success of El Bulli as its pastry chef and eventually its creative director. As the creative director he was the one that spearheaded all the avant-garde techniques that to this day define molecular gastronomy (foams, spherification). No longer wanting to be in the shadow of his famous brother Ferran he left El Bulli and went to start his own collective of restaurants in Barcelona. Think of Tickets as a scaled down El Bulli. My friend and I first started off in the main restaurant where the savories are served. Technically there *is* a menu but most people who go to Tickets opt for omakase style - once you tell the server your allergies and dislikes they'll proceed to give you "la vida tapa" until you say stop. There is no mention of any budget concerns, but considering you are eating at a World's 50 Best restaurant I assume you saved enough to splurge on the experience... Once you are done with the savories dessert is served in a separate room that reminds you of something from either Willy Wonka or Alice in Wonderland. Again the same concept applies here - dessert is served until you say "stop". The dessert room itself is a very unique experience amongst all restaurant experiences - I'd rather not say what I thought but rather experience it for yourself. Between my friend and I we shared approximately 20 tapas. - Anchoa (anchovies) - Olivas Gordal Adobad (the famous olives from "El Bulli" that are made from olive juice via a spherification process) - Caballa simesabe (their take on "pan de cristal con tomate" accompanied with mackerel) - Calamar raifort (squid in 6 grains) - Duo atun (two preparations of tuna: tuna tartare plus tuna bonbon) - Airbaguette de Rubia (their take on jamon iberico on a baguette - I think the jamon is from Galicia) - Ostra escabeche (pickled oysters) - Mini Airbags de ques (think cheese puff with manchego cheese foam on the inside) - Viaje nordico (Beet and tartar on a cracker - their take on something you would see at Noma's game & forest menu) - Gamba Steackmar (aka amaebi - sweet shrimp) - Maracusante (little peas inside of a passion fruit seed - another molecular gastronomy trick) - Albondigas de habita (peas that look like meatballs?) - Berenjena lacada (lacquered eggplant) - Mollete papada (a sandwich made from pork chin - think dumpling) - Codorniz wellington (quail done in the beef wellington style. Filled with spinach, mushrooms and ham) - Bikini trufa (sandwich of Coulommier cheese and black truffle) - Rosa de ambar (one of the signature desserts, a gelatinous ball resembling dew sits on the center of the rose. The dew tastes like lychee and raspberry). - Tickets cheesecake (a cheesecake that looks like a cheese wheel. Served with "crackers" I am not a cheesecake person and this is one of the best things I've ever eaten. The rind is super delicious; very hazelnut rich) - Tarta Choco Pasion (regular chocolate tart) - Sandwich Helado (stroopwaffle ice cream sandwich) With drinks, grand total came out to €335.30. Favorites: the olives, sweet shrimp, cheese puff with manchego, truffle cheese sandwich, cheesecake. I didn't get to go to El Bulli when it was open so going to Tickets is the next best thing. A few years back I also went to another "El Bulli" alumni's restaurant - é by José Andrés, aka Tickets as a chef's table. I prefer tickets over é because even though the techniques may be similar, the focus remains on the food. To this day one of my favorite foodie experiences.
