The carte

The proximity of the Fish Market is key to the fact that Can Ros gets its supplies directly from the sea (look out for the tuna tartar or the fish soup). But the menu also draws from the mountains (watch out for the sweet and sour pork rib or the Angus fillet). And more still, it includes both concepts on the same dish as La Barceloneta is not in the Empordà (watch out for seafood and mountain dishes like squid filled with meat or chicken with mushrooms and prawns).

But Can Ros is also the home of rice dishes (the ‘cap-i-pota' deserves an ovation). Without forgetting a selection of snacks, maybe for groups (perhaps snails or fried fish, or the spicy potatoes so traditional of the district but now classified more politically correctly: before they went from “macho” to “poofy”, depending on the spiciness).
