Pakta, or “union” in Quechua, was born out of a trip to Peru during which Ferran and Albert Adrià discovered the richness of the country’s gastronomic heritage, where different Asian diasporas have given rise to a fusion cuisine that mixes Chinese and Peruvian gastronomy, resulting in Chifa cuisine; or local specialities with Japanese cuisine, resulting from the fusion of Nikkei cuisine, the name given to emigrants of Japanese origin and their descendants around the world.

Albert Adrià’s admiration for Japanese and Peruvian cuisine led to the creation of Pakta in 2013, a restaurant run by the Japanese chef Kyoko II and the Peruvian Jorge Muñoz.
The aim was to showcase the fusion of these two cultures in gastronomy, without forgetting the location, the Mediterranean and the unmistakable Adrià touch in the context of Barcelona.

Pakta allowed you to discover two cultures through their ingredients, typical dishes and traditions. Diners were transported to these worlds through the tasting menu experience, which proposed a journey through the senses of Mediterranean and Peruvian cuisine under the gaze of Japan.

Pakta closed its doors in 2020.
