Restaurant Gaig by Carles Gaig (who previously consulted on La Ventana at Dempsey) is an offshoot of the Michelin-starred Restaurant Gaig in Barcelona. Restaurant Gaig is a bright, family-owned and managed restaurant on Stanley Street. The Catalan cuisine focuses on tapas, paellas, and hearty Catalan stews. Gaig’s Traditional Cannelloni ($15.50 per piece) is a comforting dish of roasted meat wrapped in cannelloni sheets and in a cream sauce flecked with truffles. Try the Squid Ink Seafood Fideuà ($29.50) made with paella with short vermicelli noodles (very bee-hoon esque) in lieu of rice, and flavoured with squid ink or the hearty main of gelatinous pig’s trotter with turnip ($19.20), or there’s Shrimp ‘all-i-pebre’ ($22.30) of prawns in a nut, garlic and paprika reduction. For dessert: a refreshing Orange Ice Cream Souffle ($10.20) or whipped Catalan Crème Brûlée ($10.20).
