The Catalanized spelling says it all: Mediterranean-Chinese fusion is what this attractive designer space on the Rambla is all about. That said, the black silk–clad staffers are fast and smart, and while the dim sum might not please a Cantonese purist, the wonton soup, the lacquered pork chops, and the garlic rice wrapped in a banana leaf are all delicious. Open every day of the year, la Xina offers a 15-euro lunch menu that is a top value in an iconic location on the
Rambla in the corner of the Hotel 1898.
