The list is long and there is hardly anyone who doesn’t like food that is as varied as Asian dishes due to its delicious combinations of ingredients, spices and colours.

This place doesn’t serve you the food you’d expect in “ordinary”
Asian restaurants. If you visit the Koy Shunka, get ready for a new experience, because there food is not only eaten, but above all enjoyed. The combination of delicious food, cosy ambience, visual presentation and friendly staff promises a perfect evening in Barcelona! The Michelin star awarded to the restaurant testifies to its excellent food and service. The Koy Shuka offers a high level of service, all ingredients are fresh and you can even watch the chefs from your table as they prepare your food. If you are looking for something special, we recommend ordering the 10-course tasting menu. Specialities are served in the form of starters. Soups, main courses and of course dessert. Even if the restaurant is in the higher price segment, it is definitely worth a visit. Beside the Koy Shuka there are also the “Shunka” and the “Kak Koy”, which are also located in Barcelona. But don’t forget to reserve a table before your visit!

Koku Kitchen Buns/Ramen and Gyoza Bar
Bao buns, ramen, strong ramen, high quality tea and excellent cocktails. These and other things can be found in a hidden place in the centre of Barcelona. The restaurant is divided into two floors that function as two different locations. In the upper part, Koku Kitchen Buns, the traditional handmade white dumplings called “Bao Bun” are served, filled with various ingredients such as pork, vegetables and sauce. The Bao Bun also serves traditional Vietnamese pho, Cantonese ribs and steamed dumplings stuffed with meat. In the lower part of the house, literally in the cellar, is the second part of the restaurant – Koku Kitchen Ramen and Gyoza Bar. The interior is like a metro station, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city and creates a cosy, familiar atmosphere. It’s the perfect place to enjoy delicious ramen on colder days or sip cocktails with friends in the evening. Another advantage is that all ingredients are fresh and local – with the exception of those that need to be imported. Bread and noodles are also handmade!
