Shunka
El Gòtic

The speciality here is prime-grade toro, fatty and deliciously creamy tuna belly. It’s wildly expensive as a main, but you can sample it as 'nigiri-zushi'. The house salad with raw fish also makes for a zingy starter, then you’ll find all the usual staples of the sushi menu, along with heartier options such as the 'udon kakiage', a filling broth of langoustine tempura, vegetables and noodles. A new and more upmarket branch, Koy Shunka, recently opened round the cor- ner at C/Copons 7 (93 412 79 39).
