ⓅⓄⓀⒾⓃⓈ After the Cinema Rialto crash on the last day of 1977, one of the first hamburger series in the city would end up settling in that local mateix. It will be Pokin's, a fast food franchise that has disappeared from Barcelona, which will start with three more locations (two at Portal de l'Àngel and another one at Pelai.). The singularity of this trademark was that it did not come from the State Units but was strictly Catalan.
The Pokin's by Francesc Macià opened shortly after the change of name of the plaça, will remain viu in the history of many groups of young people and adolescents who go to a gathering center before starting the usual pilgrimages of the weekend in the area of Turó discos.
In this sense, it will oust La Oca, which was basically a place for trobada but not for consumption. The most adjusted prices of the Pokin's allow the youngster not only to concentrate on the vorera but to access it between the premises. The mini pizzes and the gelats Sandy had many successes and always remained the resource of the hamburger for the most necessary to satisfy the stomach. This Pokin's also had accés pel number 5 of carrer Calvet. It goes away from the mitjants of the 1990's.
