Just a few metres away from the Boqueria is this cafe. Cafe Ra has a couple of tables inside a small room and then a large outside area as well as tables inside a long red-lit hallway that is actually a public thoroughfare. The food is very good. Though the cuisine was all over the map, many of the dishes were Catalan or with a Catalan twist. And the prices are good (as we found, the prices varied from day to day). The house wine was superb and so were the lovely and punky young tattooed waitresses.
