Zizinia de les Flors – Food autonomy concept

Zizinia de les Flors is by far one of the most interesting restaurant concepts I have ever visited. It uses the concept of 100% food autonomy,  which means: access for all people to a sufficient quantity of quality food and to food resources at a reasonable cost; power in the form of the ability to produce or purchase, with full dignity, a variety of healthy foods that are also to our taste; respect for nature, the environment, communities, neighbourhoods and lifestyles. And finally, action that involves implementing a variety of methods, both collectively and individually, towards the achievement of real food autonomy. It also implies empowerment and self-reliance in a spirit of respect for others and your surroundings.

The couple that runs the place is a nice Jordanian / English wife and husband who lived in England only to later come to Barcelona, and literally everything you eat there is made by them. As you enter the place, you will probably see bags of flour and huge containers with all kinds of ferments. The menu is short, varying with season and availability; the prices are surprisingly low (food autonomy) and don’t go looking for luxury, but for a real class of how the world can be improved (especially nowadays with environmental issues).

Try their falafel pita (I dare say Barcelona’s best)! And don’t miss the opportunity to try everything you can.
