One of our favorite places in Barcelona is Jai-Ca, a small neighborhood bar and tapas joint where we are often the only non-natives. Displays of fried seafood (fresh anchovies, baby squid, etc.) as well as other tapas are there for your selection. Jai-Ca also offers a full kitchen for made-to-order items like octopus Galicia-style and broiled razor clams, both of which are superb. The Catalan owners are charm itself, welcoming and willing to engage in practice conversation with even the most halting of visiting gringos. This autumn Sunday at 4:30pm, an ideal time to visit.
