Bar / Sandwich Shop in Barcelona with no Name?

When I was in Barcelona 5-6 years ago I stumbled across the best sandwich I've ever had in my life at some hole in the wall place, that I believe, had no name on the building.

I remember it being on a quiet side street within walking distance of the large marina, but am not certain about this location. I noticed a large crowd of people gathering outside before it opened around 10:30 AM so I walked over to check it out.

When the doors did open, there was a mad rush to get in and order from the bartenders who would mark your order down in front of you on a paper scroll that ran the length of the bar.

It was a madhouse inside, partly because I think they were giving out free glasses of sparkling wine with your order (although I did not realize this at the time). Anyway, everything was in Spanish and I was the only person there who didn't speak it, so I just pointed to what I wanted, which turned out to be the best sandwich I've ever had to this day - Spanish ham and raw sheep's milk soft cheese on the most mouth watering of breads.

For the love of G-d, does anyone out there think they might know the place I am describing?

Thank you very much.
