Momo

    In the spirit of the owner’s reverence for history and tradition, this haven of tranquility can be found nestled in the heart of the old Jewish quarter within the Barri Gotic. When Kaori, the brains behind Momo (Japanese for "peach") first arrived in Barcelona 15 years ago, the frustration of eating Eastern food with only Western utensils eventually led her to source traditional crockery from Japan, Korea and Vietnam herself. Many of the ceramics on display are lovingly hand-made by members of the large Japanese community right here in Barcelona, including bowls created using the ancient Raku firing method. Beneath the aesthetic simplicity and clean lines of Japanese design lies an ancient culture of ritual – the origami cranes, eyeless “Daruma” figures, silk kimonos and calligraphy sets all have their own unique ways of inciting luck, preventing misfortune and encouraging optimism for the future. As Kaori confided in us, "in tradition I find peace, and in memories of home I find comfort”. She couldn’t have put it better.Show lessRead more
