Description: We bet that Shoko is unique in Barcelona, an Asian-slash-Mediterranean restaurant with enormous terrace overlooking the sea with Oriental dance and martial arts demonstrations that morphs into a club at the sound of a gong featuring house and soul. Oh, and there are film projections and a faux bamboo forest to dine in. Set just below the groovy Arts Hotel, Shoko is a beautiful space, richly decorated with great influence of the orient as it is right this minute. The menu features tapas, paellas, salads like raw Vietnamese spring rolls, sushi, wok and tempura dishes, meat dishes like rack of lamb with black olive oil, and very Western desserts like chocolate brownie with pistachio ice cream.
