Feast on Spain’s New Trend, Tuna

Mediterranean tuna, which is popular in Japan, is now a craze in Barcelona. Nouvelles Catalan cuisine has inspired new recipes for this once pan-fried fish, which has stirred a global craze for Japanese cuisine. With this trend came Tunatecha, a tuna specialty restaurant managed by Balfego. Since opening its doors, the restaurant has gained a great deal of popularity, and it’s supplied with tuna from the Balfego tuna ranch, which distributes farm-raised tuna worldwide. The tuna farm offers high-quality tuna at a stable price, and Tunatecha offers original Mediterranean cuisine. A must for your next visit to Barcelona.
