Today we are Madrid, enjoying a fun day out, walking between “las callas” of the city. At the end of the day, at sundown, we’ve started to feel that’s relentless desire to eat tapas, those delightful snacks or finger food, typical of Spain, excellent for an aperitif but often abundant even for a dinner, accompanied perhaps with a good “vino tinto”.
But, how to choose from the vast jungle of bars and restaurants and avoid the most tourist and low quality ones?
Luckily, I have a good name on my travel notes, and tonight I want to give it a try foryou! 🙂
Juana, la loca!
Pintxos bars, (from “pincho“, a term used in north-central Spain, the cumulative tapa), Juana la loca, is the ideal place for those who like to eat well without spending a fortune,
Surely, there are cheaper tapas bars nearby but, in my opinion, the high quality of food, the refinement in the choice of menu and the exquisite presentation of dishes, it is not for everyone.
Only one negative note: be patient, because it’s a very popular place so you may be forced to also long waits (in our case only, half an hour)
I recommend you to visit their website and eventually to book beforehand.
‘Must try’ dish
Their special tortilla stuffed caramelized onions (if I’ve digested, go easy!).
ciao e alla prossima,
