Just a few blocks from La Sagrada Familia, Jordi Alert has been serving great grilled seafood and baked rice dishes since the late 1970s. What you order depends on how much of a hurry you’re in. The “menu express” offers a choice of shellfish grilled or steamed, a choice of grilled finfish, and a pastry for dessert. The arròs menu (minimum two people) is designed for lingering. You get a selection of fish bites and shellfish para pica, and then paella or similar arròs, and a pastry. Best order a bottle of wine, as you’ll be halfway through it before the rice is ready. If you have a voracious appetite, order the parrillada of assorted grilled fish and shellfish, and it will just keep coming, plate after plate.
