CATALUNYA - BARCELONA - SHUNKA
After arriving 15 minutes late, after some difficulty in finding the restaurant, we were told there would not be long enough time for the tasting menu.
After a few pleading, encouraging words, they relented and served us the Shunka menu.
It is a charming restaurant with good furnishings.
Menu Shunka €68 per person.
Raw oyster with ponzu sauce.
Red Mullet with ponzu sauce.
Deep-fried hake cheeks.
Sushi of smoked sardine.
Tuna belly, sea urchins and salmon roe with rice.
Grilled red prawns.
Lightly roasted tune belly.
Dessert of green tea truffle.
Each dish we had were of high creativity and quality, with all the fish and seafood being very fresh.
Using parsley for a palate cleanser was different from the usually pickled ginger, and I enjoyed the change.
Very good service with an amazing combination of acidity and bold flavours, fresh ingredients with a unique presentation in a really nice atmosphere.
