Barcelona is an amazing food city for many reasons, but the main one is that the local mini-mart, Opencore, caries an impressive array of wine and cheese. I'm not kidding. From the outside the store looks like any old Walgreens or CVS but alongside the shampoo and toilet paper is amazing wine (2,35 euro) and rockin' cheese (7,20 euro). So, yea maybe I could have gotten something better at Whole Foods, but certainly not for the same price or with the same convenience. My favorite was that they had a locked case of fancy meat! Seriously, the booze wasn't locked up. No, it was the "duck ham" that was much purloined commodity. Really, when was the last time you had some good meat from CVS?
