Description: 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.

We were lucky to get a reservation at Shunka on short notice on a busy Friday night. The menu is small but creative and delicious.

We tried several of the house specialties including tuna tataki and lightly fried hockey. Both were amazing! We ordered another serving of the tuna at the end of the meal.

We also had the house specialty Maki roll and a few other dishes including a large portion of unagi.

While their sake selection was limited and was initially served too warm, after 5-10 minutes in a flask with ice when it chilled it was excellent.

We would definitely eat here again.

This place was around the corner from Hotel Colon. The sushi was amazingly fresh, the service was great, and probably the best sushi I have had in a long time! I eat sushi quite often, at least 2-3 times a week! The staff is efficient and the service was great. I hope to dine there again before we go!
