Let's Asian!

Asian food is comfort and light food, perfect for cold days and hot days like now as well. Let us discover authentic flavors in cool places.
-       Shanghai: My favorite Chinese in town, was first opened in Barcelona by the parents of Jose Maria Kao that came from China. It was the first Chinese in Barcelona. Now their son born in Barcelona is the chef so the mix of cultures is present while retaining the authenticity of the Chinese cuisine.
Calle de Bisbe Sivilla 48. Closed on Mondays

  • These are part of the dishes at Shanghai. The "nems" are served in a stylish way and are excellent. 

-       Out of china: Rediscovered this place few months back and what a change, the place is modern with an excellent service offering fresh and innovative dishes. Another of my favorite in town.
Calle d'Aribau, 112 – Open for Lunch : Wed to Sun. For dinner: Mon to Sat

  • Yummy Seitan and more vegetarian dishes at Out of China.

-       Asian ways: Casual street food style on Parralel, this place is perfect for a quick bite or takeaway. You can observe the chefs at their work making the rolls or ramen.
Av. del Paraŀlel, 92, 08015 Barcelona- Open everyday for lunch- Dinner Mon to Fri.
Tel:  938 32 45 60

  • Dumpling made in front of you, tofu in this casual place. They also have a great terrace .

-       Aromas de Asia: Another casual place in a simple setting offering a fusion of Asian flavors, Thai curries, or Korean dishes, Chinese… Cute and simple, that’s what you need sometimes.
Calle del Rosselló, 152

  • They make their own seitan, and try their rose tea. Pad thai is yummy as well and they have many vegetarian options. 

-       Taverna Xina: And finishing with another casual cool place, loved the setting of this Chinese tavern and their dishes are great. Authentic Chinese cuisine,  they have studied in the Hoffman school and opened recently.
Calle  de Sagués, 16,

  • Try their asian fries with chili sauce! They have reduced their vegetatrian options since we went so call if you have any food restrictions. 

I am glad that now we have authentic Chinese cuisine in Barcelona and not those typical red and gold restaurants serving oily “Rollos de primavera” and “Arroz tres delicias”.
