Top 10 Luxury places to visit in Barcelona
Camouflaged as your average kitschy Spanish souvenir shop lies a superb Japanese restuarant and one of Barcelona's best kept secrets. Chi Ton is a whole lot more than plastic flamenco figurines...
Chi Ton is part of the exclusive and rather mystifying 'Urban Secrets' group, a members only club gaining you access to the most enviably elite cultural and dining experiences in the capital.
This superb little restaurant not only has that 'if you're on the list you're in" appeal, but the dining experience itself is something worth beholding.
Under the actual shop floor itself, accessed only by the secret elevator, is the restaurant compromising of several steely IKEA looking cooking stations surrounded by plastic islands where your personal chefs will cook your meals in front of your very eyes.
The creative fusion gastronomy teamed with its playful exterior and sophisticated interior makes Chi-Ton something really special.
The Catalan spring onions and Iberian pork tenderloin with sweet potato & wild vegetables stood out as modern takes on a classic Catalonian dishes.
The only negative we encountered was the service, which could be improved, but in a place where inaccessibility is all part of the appeal, it's almost to be expected.
