If you want to go Japanese in Barcelona, this is the place. The chef of this understated little izakaya (the Japanese version of a tavern) gets his ingredients fresh from the city's markets, with traditional Japanese recipes receiving a Mediterranean touch. This is fusion at its very best.

Choices include sardine tempura with an aubergine, miso and anchovy purée, or tataki (lightly grilled meat) of bonito (tuna) with salmorejo (a Cordoban cold tomato and bread soup).
