The restaurant is named after the traditional neighborhood in Madrid. It is decorated in a very simple and informal way and with a modern tapas bar style. It offers Spanish homemade cuisine with some Latin fusion, due to the fact that the chef (myself) is very fond of Latino American cuisine.
Specialties of the house are tapas and the rice dishes that, in my opinion, are the perfect combination to spend nice time-sharing with family and friends.
You can try out tapas so popular like; ensaladilla rusa (Spanish potato salad), boquerones en vinagre (fresh anchovies marinated in vinegar), tortilla española, calamares rebozados (fried battered squids), patatas bravas or croquetas. And other tapas, of my own creation, like; octopus with veggies and yuca chips, mix of ceviches, albòndigas al chipotle con champiñones (chili pepper meatballs with mushrooms), morcilla andaluza con coliflor, ahuyama y chimichurri (blood sausage with coliflower, squash and its sauce), etc.
Amongst the different rice dishes you can find; el caldoso marinero (a seafood soupy rice), el arroz a banda or the truffled rice with cured ham and mushrooms. The star platter in the menu is “Homenaje a au pied de cochon”, consisting in seven different cuts of pork that are cooked using different techniques and served with pickled products and corn and wheat tortillas.
The popular dessert of the house is “el flan de queso”, a sweet and salty combination that is worthy trying out.
The wine list offers a large range of bottles from Spain and some others from the new continent.
Don’t miss the opportunity to try out these favorite dishes and wines!
