KOSHER FOOD IN BARCELONA: STORES AND RESTAURANTS
The kosher Barcelona scene has changed a lot these last years. I have been giving tours for over 14 years now, and many of my clients are Jewish. Although not all of them observed strictly the kosher rules when they are traveling, occasionally I meet people that are very committed with the kosher rules. And for many years, it was a big problem for them to find places to find Jewish food in town. Until a couple of years ago, there where no kosher restaurants in Barcelona.
Luckily, things have changed and now the kosher Barcelona visitors and locals are starting to have a small but decent variety of places where you will be able to respect the Jewish food laws. Let’s discover where!
Here is our Kosher Barcelona guide:
Ilans Burger Bar
Located in a side away off La Rambla crowded with young people at night, you’ll find one of the newest Kosher venues in town. Ilans looks like just any normal burger bar but… their food is Kosher! The venue is run by an Israeli family that has been living in Barcelona since 1987, so Hebrew is spoken there, too. Plus they have vegetarian options and a kids menu. A great stop when your family starts getting cranky after walking around La Rambla for a long time.
Ben Ben Kosher House
A fairly new kosher store in 257 Aribau st, and area in the uptown Barcelona that has welcomed several other kosher business although unfortunately they haven’t lasted much. Hopefully this one succeeds! They have a butcher and deli shop, a market and a café, and aim to become a kosher meeting point in the city.
Order your kosher food online. They deliver at your hotel or apartment, and can also prepare special Shabbat dinners and catering for special events in Barcelona and surroundings.
Do you need quick comfort food? Just off la Rambla this street food venue offers falafels with vegetable side dishes. It belongs to an Israeli chain, so they know what they are doing when it comes to keeping it Kosher!
AND BONUS! Here is where to find kosher wine:
What is a good Jewish meal without a great kosher wine? In the Jewish quarter Barcelona you will find this interesting cultural center, a mix of bookstore, wine store and Jewish cultural center. Plus after savoring the kosher Barcelona you can also take a tour of the Medieval Jewish Section!
