LET'S GO FOR TAPAS IN MADRID
Updated: Jun 18, 2020
From the classics, such as the Iberian ham, the potato omelette or the cheese, to the most revolutionary tapas, such as some txangurro ravioli with apple or a mushroom and foie risotto.
In any bar in Madrid, even in Spain, you can find our famous tapas, some very original, and others that are known as the classics, which we have all tried and that even though we have eaten them a thousand times, we still love them. But there are others that can only be found in certain places, unique tapas that are the desire of every good gastronomic fan.
Malasaña is our first stop, the scene of many historical events in the most traditional Madrid. In this central district, we can find El Restaurante Bolívar.
It is a traditional and traditional restaurant that surrounds you in a timeless atmosphere. Its famous forest mushrooms with foie, almond vinaigrette and prawns, were finalists in the Madrid Tapas Competition in 2012.
Our next stop is at the Teatro Platea. A place where gastronomy is a way of life, where you can find all kinds of products and delicacies, but let's focus on Restaurante Arriba, run by the prestigious chef Ramón Freixa. Combining tradition with innovation, he offers us, among many other tapas, a delicious chronut flaky with acorn-fed Iberian ham or the classic, but no less innovative, cod fritters. We are sure you will be surprised.
The chefs Javier Mayor, Javier Goya and David Alfonso, bring us our next proposal, Triciclo. Creativity is their hallmark, and among many other tasty and innovative tapas, our favourites are pigeon with cous cous and txangurro ravioli with apple.
To finish this little tour of the best places to eat tapas in Madrid, we go to La Cabra. Chef Javier Aranda brings us a surprising and avant-garde proposal, and we don't only say it for its exquisite tapas, but also for the aesthetics of its place. A decoration full of contrasts, sophisticated and modern, with different spaces to make your experience with the tapas, something unforgettable.
In La Cabra we find an extensive menu of tapas, where we can observe all kinds of delicacies for all audiences. Our favourites are the Kokotxas Croissant and the Oysters Mignonette.
It is clear that Madrid is for everyone, but its tapas even more. Don't stay in the classic squid sandwich in the Plaza Mayor and dare to get into the most extraordinary flavors of Madrid.
