After 45 years, local legend El Bodequín on C/Hercegovina went out of business. And who dared to settle in at number 24? As is usually the case, a group of people who came out fighting to win. Vera, Albert and Xavi decided to transform the venue from head to toe, and now it’s the poetry-themed Pervers Taverna Poética. The menu arrives to you inside an actual envelope with 13 verses by the poet Eduard Sanahuja that synchronize your body and soul to best prepare you for the appetizers and cold or warm sandwiches on offer. Their ‘patatas bravas’ are called Stendhal and come with two sauces – a spicy red sofrito, and a mild black-garlic ‘alioli’ (garlic mayonnaise). You’ll also be surprised by a delicious spicy ‘sobrassada’ sausage sponge cake served with smoked sardines that’s a wonderful mix of flavours and textures.
