Without any Hawaiian descendants, three friends of Venezuelan origin that settled in Barcelona brought this breakthrough concept of healthy Hawaiian style salads that triumph in the United States, to our city.
Located in the heart of the Gracia neighborhood, just two streets away from your Venezuelan friends of Chivuo’s and next door to the Design School of Barcelona (IED); Is the favorite menu of students and passers-by in the neighborhood.
A style of food that was never marketed by Hawaiian natives but today has become a trend driven by a new healthy lifestyle with an emphasis on fresh and quality products. These so called, Poké, are varied salads, a traditional dish of Hawaiian cuisine based on raw fish that has a modified presentation based on multiple culinary influences, mainly the Japanese.
Daniel, Roberto and Marcel live up to the casual, modern style so characteristic of American venues. And after visiting the city of San Francisco and tasting these stylishly prepared Hawaiian dishes, Daniel fell in love with them and saw the opportunity to install it in our city.
After being open for just seven months, The Hip Fish is on everyone’s lips and we’re not surprised. Their “hip” style has simple but defined decoration that perfectly characterizes their unique personality.
In The Hip Fish you will find an already prepared Poké Bowl card where you only have to choose a size. That and the specialty of the house, the Sushi Roll , a synergy between Asian and Latin food. A hybrid between sushi and burrito with a rice base and wrapped in Japanese kelp. Although if you do not like any of the combinations they offer you can do it yourself by choosing the base you like and adding toppings to your Poké Bowl or Sushi Roll.
Roberto, one of the partners, prepares two Poké Bowls. One small bowl with salmon, tuna, edamame, Shitake mushrooms, red cabbage, radish, Japanese green chives and sesame seeds; All marinated with a citric soybean and rice base. And another medium sized bowl with tuna, Wakame seaweed, mixed wakame salad with surimi, avocado, mango, quinoa base and sesame sauce; Marinated in classic soy with ginger, sesame and onion.
Then, we add his most famous Sushi Roll, The Anchor, made with white rice, fresh salmon, spicy alioli, kale, red cabbage, mango and crab. We love this different way to eat sushi. All that and a selection of natural juices and elaborate desserts.
The Hip Fish, a breakthrough gastronomic concept inherited from the other side of the puddle that is gaining fire in Barcelona. It will end up hooking you!
