Tired of tapas and more tapas, we came upon the website for a restaurant called NAKASHITA. There were a couple of posts on the web touting this place. So we took a shot. On the end of a one way street called Rec Comtal lies Nakashita, a hidden gem of a sushi restaurant in the El Born area.
Being sushi lovers, we put our hands in the ultra incredible hands of the master chef Marcio, who hails from Argentina of all places. So now imagine a combination of ultra fresh fish, in the hands of a South American sushi master in the land of tapas, Barcelona.
Starting us off with an incredible scallop sashimi in special sauce, and leading us through courses that included a trio of cerviches on the lightest crackers and guacamole, followed by a toro uzuzukuri...later in the dinner he gave us an amazing seared toro on seared rice which was sheer heaven. Following that, we had the Italian roll...imagine Spain meets Italy.... Finally the grand finale..what he called his "sweet nigiri". It was a combination of foie meets sweet....that was one of the best fushion dishes I have ever eaten....it was phenominal...another diner at the opposite end of the sushi bar had it as well, and you heard the wows across the room.
If you're in the mood for something different in a town that is creative to a fault...but a lot of it is the same old, same old, RUN do not walk to NAKASHITA...it was wonderful and reasonable for the quality recieved. I should also mention that the two servers spoke perfect English as well as Spanish, a plus for this American. A fantasic find!!
