Teicawey Mexican. It’s getting so hot now. August in Barcelona – it’s not so much about the temperatures as it is about the humidity. It’s wet and sticky. You think – “I couldn’t possibly eat in this heat.” What you actually mean is “I couldn’t possibly cook.” And you don’t have to if you are in Gracia, where you have Teicawey with its fat aluminum wrapped burritos and its clusters of hot sauces boasting varying degrees of spiciness.
In the chiller cabinet at Teicawey Mexican, there is almond milk and fresh lemonade with chia seeds swirling around. Rather uncommon here the combination of healthy and not so healthy. Normally if you see chia then it’s likely that seitan sausages are not too far behind. Nor are the strangely coloured nut pates. Mercifully, none of that here.
When I say Mexican, this is American style American. Burritos the size of my calf, filled and bloated. They slice it in half for you and serve it on a plastic plate. It is a feat to get through half of it, let alone the entire thing.
Additionally, Teicawey is a great resource of sauces, condiments, wraps and whatever Mexican accouterment you might be in the market for to create your own Mexican dinner.
