Tasty dishes, very nice staff, a bit expensive, but definitely worth it. Recommended to make reservations before you go, since it's a very popular place, and you might not be able to get in without a reservation.

In much of the West, Asian food is ubiquitous; but in Spain, especially Barcelona where haute Catalan cuisine reigns supreme, it is downright adventurous. Shunka, a regionally-rare Japanese eatery whose name means “intense aroma of the season,” harnesses the best of the East-West dichotomy by fusing local ingredients with Japanese-style cooking methods.
