Swab is still committed to the craft product that stands out for its quality and creativity in all its forms.
As every year, on the gastronomic zone we have Swab Picnic, where importance of the care product is defended, starting with brands from the innovation of young entrepreneurs such as the Tibidabo Brewing and Agua enCaja Mejor, or the innovative and creative cocktails of Dr. Stravinsky, and the emblematic restaurant of our city, the Flash Flash restaurant.
Our gastronomy is synonymous of innovation and art, and that is why this year Swab also wants to be a platform to exalt this and to echo new proposals. For this, this year we are associated with elBullifoundation, an alliance that seeks to announce new projects and enhance art without limits.
The public will be able to discover and experience the most creative gastronomy in the Picnic area, as well as Swab's collector's program. You will be able to visit the private facilities of the Bulli Lab for the first time and feel the limits of art and experimentation.
Reference restaurant in Barcelona, full of history, design and modernity, a cult of the good things.
Today, going to Flash Flash means enjoying a complete meal, not only limited to a hamburger, or just having a coffee or meeting someone for a drink ... all this is possible and usual in Flash Flash. Meeting point for businessmen, writers, artists and journalists, lone diners who read the newspaper while they eat, notable people, young and cool people, architects, artists and musicians who come after the show... or simply parents with children... Everyone is comfortable in Flash Flash.
Its menu is mainly composed of a selection of more than 50 tortillas, some very different hamburgers that are very different from the ones we are used to see in the market, a large salad buffet and a vegetable section. There is what is called "Dish of the day", in which we can find almost home-made daily dishes up to preparations of the most current cuisine but always with the philosophy that was adopted since its inception more than 45 years ago. The offer is different every day, and always with seasonal products.
elBullifoundation is a private foundation, with family structure, promoted by Ferran Adrià and Juli Soler. Incorporated on February 7, 2013, it was born from the need to transform elBullirestaurante, with a vision of the future that is based on the will to continue promoting innovation and creativity through the language of the kitchen, and to maintain and protect the legacy and spirit of elBulli for society.
The objectives that elBullifoundation has set correspond to the will to lead a project around knowledge, education, business and innovation, focused on the language of gastronomy but with a vocation to transcend other projects, fields, disciplines, sectors.
