Txirimiri is a small pinxtos (Basque tapas) tavern in the heart of Madrid’s La Latina neighbourhood. Well, really, it’s two taverns; one in the Salamanca District, and this one, which has a much better atmosphere and an even better
The Gula Gula is difficult to define with one word only. Restaurant during the day and night club when the sun sets, it is a bit of a quick-change place, like most of the artists that have been entertaining the public of Madrid for 15

The Spanish Omelette is one of the best, a fact confirmed in the 5th National Spanish Omelette Contest. It’s golden on the outside but gloriously gooey on the inside.
It’s best to get there early, no later than 1 or 1:30pm and, if
The food is as good as the one in the restaurant of the same chain called Public. And the problems are the same too: the tables are put very close to one another, the pressure of the waiters taking your plate away while you are still
San Arcangelo is a small Italian trattoria in the Madrid’s nice Los Jerónimos neighborhood where you can enjoy more than decent Italian food, for a rather low price. I would highlight the involtini di melanzane (eggplant rolls) and
