Food and drink
There’s no menu (just point if your Spanish is ropey) and dishes change according to what’s looking good in the market that day, but expect to find superb chickpeas with black pudding, tasty little chipirones cooked with baby broad beans and breaded lamb cutlets.
It’s just a market bar, and a hugely popular one at that, so make yourself known and wait for a bar stool while you enjoy the banter.
Juanito, with his cheery grin and dicky bow, is a Boqueria institution in himself, and has been here for as long as anyone can remember ("around 60 years" he told me once).
Pinotxo is just to the left as you walk through the entrance to the Boqueria.
It’s impossible to call as dishes change daily, but you’ll eat well for the money, whatever it is.
