Let’s practice Slow Food at these restaurants

By the end of the twentieth century, during the boom of fast food and the Tupperware culture, the Slow Food initiative came on the scene: a breath of fresh air, which through gastronomy, invited out to taste the local traditions, the origins and the nature of food.

Slow Food is a kind of philosophy, a way to face life leisurely and without hurries, combining an interest in nutrition with the pleasures provided by gastronomy. The pillars of Slow Food were settled in 1989 on a gastronomic association that promotes a more traditional and respectful way of eating, under the slogan Good, Clean and Fair.

The restaurants we recommend you in Barcelona follow the philosophy Slow Food. There, you can taste unhurriedly the most traditional dishes, elaborated carefully for the most exacting palates. Let’s practice Slow Food here:
