El Furacu, a traditional cider bar in Barcelona

Located in the famous neighbourhood of l’Eixample, it stands for a quality Asturian cuisine.

LA SIDRA.- The traditional cuisine of Asturias has a worthy representative in El Furacu cider bar, in Barcelona. It is a small and modest, but cozy restaurant founded in 1987, with a casual decor and atmosphere which recalls the typical Asturian bar.

Apart from the bar area with some tables, it has an inner dining-room plus a private area upstairs with seating for up to 18 diners.

In his menu they take back the pleasure of the hotpots, offering “fabada” (Asturian bean stew), tripe and kidney beans with oxtail, clams or squids in its ink as specialities.

Also present are fish and seafood, like hake in cider sauce, “Cantabrian style” cod, fried monkfish pieces, squids, small crabs and spiny crabs. And talking about meat, the most successful dish is the veal fore rib in Cabrales cheese sauce.

To finish our meal they offer homemade desserts like rice pudding, creme caramel, chocolate mousse, figs in puff pastry or chestnut cake. And naturally, typical Asturian cheese like Cabrales and Gamoneu, which can be served with quince jelly.

And last, but not least, the customer can taste cider with electrical pourers, but they can also enjoy the traditional pouring from a height while listening to Angel Ovies singing Asturian songs.
