Jatachi is one the the latest new foodie hot spots in the ever growing Barcelona food scene, fusing together the dishes from across Asia for an ultimate fashion menu.

Located in Castelldefels, Barcelona the industrial looking eatery was created by co-founders after their extensive trips to the continent, with stops in Thailand, Singapore or Japan wanting to combine experiences from their travel into one new destination.

Wanting to create a venue were  “the street comes into the restaurant” the duo created just that, with an industrial space that echoes the hustle and bustle and neon lights of bustling streets markets in Asia. The space is sleek and modern, with concrete and metal throughout and cold graffiti artwork and bright yellow logos decorating the space throughout.

Jatachi is modern and minimal but at the same time inviting and a perfect excuse to wonder off from central Barcelona, we tried for ourselves on a recent visit.

The menu is diverse and is based of sharing dishes, not starters and mains here. Dishes take inspiration from across Asia, with Thai, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese just some of the cuisines referenced in the menu. The staff encourage you to select a variety of dishes for you to share with friends and try a variety of flavours.

The sushi section features several roll fillings, from mango to kimchi,  with the latter being particularly taste, with the Korean staple mixed in with avocado, tuna and mayonnaise for an all mighty combo. Maki and Nigris options are also available if you want to stick to just sushi options.

Salmon tartar was another highlight, super fresh fish served on a bed of rice, a tuna option of the same dish is also available.

The hot dish section is varied with curries and pad Thai options, but we went for the Tori Yakisoba, a noodle dish with vegetables and chicken, super tasty and filling. The red curry was another success, the Thai dish coming in chicken and prawn options.

If you still have room then there is a small selection os sweet dishes, we recommend the cheesecake and artisan mochis.

The cocktails are delicious with a nod to Asia in their ingredient choice, the Kat Sumi, the passion fruit and tequila mix with a touch with ginger for a kick.

We recommend you selecting a few dishes demo each section depending how many people you go with so you can try a bit of all the menu, with no dish over €10 it’s a bargain, and worth the half hour trip from Barcelona centre
