Barcelona’s first hibachi (Japanese BBQ) restaurant is a cosy, wood-panelled place, hidden from the street and illuminated with backlit paper screens. The menu, like the soundtrack, mixes Japanese with local influences, and alongside the sumiyaki you’ll find patatas bravas and a Japanese take on paella. The menú del día is good value – choose soup (the sopa cuppa is not what it suggests, but rather a spicy beef broth), then a noodle or rice dish, followed by a strangely incongruous sachertorte or tiramisu.
