Japanese in L'Eixample

The chef of this understated little izakaya (Japanese tavern) gets his ingredients fresh from the city's markets, with traditional Japanese recipes receiving a Mediterranean touch. Choices include udon noodles sautéed with squid and clams, or tataki (lightly grilled meat) of bonito (tuna) with salmorejo (a Cordoban cold tomato and bread soup).
