The Ochiai Patisserie, which opened its doors over 30 years ago, marked without a doubt one of the first points of contact between the flavor of Japan and the culinary tradition of Catalonia. Over its many years, the site has come to resemble a sort of cultural embassy, bringing Japanese sweets to new mouths, and sparking well-deserved appreciation for the dorayaki, daifuku, fumanju, yomogui and sakuramochi.
Turris has become one of the world’s most eye-opening bakeries in recent years. It marked the re-emergence of the traditional role of bread, while adopting a profound and modern take on what this product represents within today’s dietary and culinary landscape.
Forn la Llibreria
This bakery pays homage, with its name, to the book-selling business that occupied its premises in days past. It offers a wide variety of artisanal, organic, and wholly original baked goods, as well as scrumptious croissants made with all sorts of tasty fillings.
In addition to being one of Barcelona’s oldest bakeries, la Mistral enjoys a very special status among city natives, owing in large part to the 100% artisanal quality of its breads, as well as its popular and ever-delicious ensaimadas, Mallorcan-style flaky pastries. The bakery was also the first to sell certified organic products.
