We offer you a unique experience.
Our atmosphere: Barcelona´s old Jewish Quarter, "El Call Jueu". A walk through it´s streets and alleys, their history and stories, who lived where, what did they do and how did that amazing life flourished and ended.
Our scenario: A house, with amazing atmosphere, old walls, high ceilings, one of the oldest buildings in the city. Casa Adret stands in what was once the heart of Jewish Quarter. This significant location, demanded extreme thoughtfulness on the part of the building’s designers, who carefully crafted a structure that has become a symbol of the new face of the old Call.
Our food: Jewish culinary festival. In a nut shell, Middle East meets the western Sepharad and Ashkenaz (West and Eastern Europe) cuisine with a touch of México and Australia.
The word festival has been used because that´s what we offer, a holiday for your eyes, in your plate and must certainly in your mouth. We like the ways the mothers or grandmothers in our lives serve us food, abundantly and with all the love.
We consider ourselves something between Yiddishe Momme, and La Mamma Italiana (if there´s any difference...)
The menu we will surprise you with different flavors from our different backgrounds. Everything will be set in the table soy you can build your perfect bite.
Start your night with an amazing walk through the Call and end it with a delicious comfort menu. A unique experience that you will cherish.

And then they were two.
Monica and Eva. We are Toldot Barcelona. We come from very different backgrounds,different corners of the globe, but our journey has intertwined through food. Toldot means chronicle in Hebrew, and what we wish to do is bring food, histories and heritage, different chronicles, to the table.
Monica, from Mexico City, was raised in a Syrian Jewish family. Eva, from Melbourne Australia, Askenazi Polish heritage and Irish roots. Food has always been part our lives. Coincidentally, the oldest and greatest moments of our lives have been in the kitchen or around a food table. Maybe this is why we like each other so much.
Toldot Barcelona is a common project where we wish to explore and promote Jewish culture and heritage through food. The Jewish culinary legacy is so vast and diverse, and the question hovers, ‘What is Jewish Food’? With the three of us, we cover a great part, from Middle East, to Easter Europe, from Ashkenazi to Sepharadic (think: peirogi meets kippe). It´s a richness that is intertwined not only with the places where we are born, the families that we came from, but also this incredible culture we now call home.
The experience we offer is not only culinary, but historic- the space where we are located is the oldest inhabited house in the city. Casa Adret stands in what was once the heart of Jewish Quarter. This significant location is highlighted through stunning design, its architects carefully crafted a structure that has become a symbol of the new face of the old Call. Entering it’s walls is a shortcut to the Middle Ages, an opportunity so rare and special, even for locals.
So, basically what we love to do is cook, eat, feed mouths, meet people, listen to their stories and share ours. We believe that worlds can come closer by eating at the same table and sharing flavors. We hope we can share this exceptional experience with you, and to be taken to another world.
