Since reopening after lockdown Bodega Soto has been run by the third generation of this macareno family, Manuel Infante Soto, who clearly has a slightly bonkers sense of humour. The bar is much more “cluttered” than previously, with all kinds of curious bric a brac, including this mini depiction of the annual almadraba tuna catch and a creepy killer doll which Manuel says came into his possession after a client said it was too scary for her to keep at home. There’s plenty more to unpack here and so I shall be back to question Manuel about the history of some of his other curios.
