“I’m Joan, owner of the original family-run bar ‘Pinotxo’, located in the Boqueria market. I don’t know why but people come here. It’s surely not for me, probably for the quality of the food we serve: green peppers of Padrón, pork sausages of Catalonia, cheek peas with black pudding, a sensational cold salad with cod and lentils, prawns of Palamós… Everything is cooked in this small but fantastic bar”.
Why Pinotxo? My business partner had a dog called Pinotxo that always came by the bar. People saw him and cried: “That’s Pinotxo, the dog from the bar!”. That’s why I decided to give the same name to the bar”.
