Named after the awesomely brilliant food market in Barcelona, this clever modern tapas bar is something of an oasis in the foodie wastelands of Acre Lane. Grab a space at the sleek bar or squeeze into the crowded dining room for some of the best tapas in this part of town, including a selection of Iberian hams, really good croquetas de jamón, salted Padrón peppers and patatas bravas for traditionalists. There are also plates of black rice with squid and mussels or meltingly good pork cheeks with red wine and toasted almonds for the more adventurous – all spanking fresh and well presented. Wines are a patriotic Spanish bunch, with no fewer than nine cavas at ridiculously cheap prices. In short, Boqueria is a truly excellent hangout that sets its sights pretty high – and delivers.
