El Cafe is the only restaurant in Barcelona that has raw options, and I knew I had to go sample what they had. I was curious to know how the raw scene was in this city.
As we entered the small restaurant, the place had the essence scent of ‘newness’ to it. It sure looked new and had a modern rustic design and green vibe to it. The lighting of the place had a muted yellowish tone to it, making the photos of the food I took appear ochre. Right away I liked the feel and look to this simple place. The staff was friendly and the chef prepared the food in the kitchen that was within eye view from where we were sitting: We saw how everything was prepared — fresh with good quality ingredients.
The menu has a selection of raw vegan, cooked vegan, and vegetarian; all ingredients are organic. I went for mostly raw, and Nick went for mostly cooked as he wasn’t feeling the raw options they provided.
