This bodega first opened in Nou Barris 50 years ago. Miquel took it over four years ago and has kept all the original furniture, the old barrels and even the floor, stained with vinegar and wine. On weekday mornings it fills up with elderly people. They sit by the window with a beer in hand and gaze out over the sparse vegetation that makes up the Jardins de l'Alfàbia. Inside the shop, there are small blackboards announcing the prices of tins, bottles and preserves, with the offers of the week hanging in buckets. Neighbours come to the bodega with plastic bottles in bags so as not to spill the wine. A practice that has almost disappeared into memory. Miquel knows the area very well, and says that he serves anchovies and mixed tapas "at a reasonable price."
