Japanese in La Sagrada Família & L'Eixample

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. 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).
