Welcome to Madrid
This 'taberna' (traditional restaurant-bar) located in the district of Chueca was founded in 1940 by Belarmino García and became famous for its fried squid sandwiches and its tortilla. Seventy years on, the granddaughter of the founder decided to reopen the bar, adapting it to these new times. It has been fully refurbished, blending vintage style with industrial touches.
The entrance to this restaurant, with a huge graffiti mural, already gives us a hint as to the modern ambiance of this place, which is divided into four different areas where you can enjoy its essence at different times of the day. There is an area with high tables, another chill out area, very popular for after work drinks, a dining area, and a more intimate and cosy area as well. Its menu features a wide range of sandwiches, made fresh to order, where you can choose your bread, such as a classic fried squid sandwich served on black bread, chicken and vegetables on curry bread, tortilla with green peppers, or roast beef, aubergine and brie. It also offers classic dishes such as croquettes, 'broken eggs', and garlic prawns, as well as other original dishes such as noodles with cabbage, beans, carrot, celery, courgette and prawns, or Garbel spring rolls, a kind of mini spring roll with minced meat, vegetables, and sweet and sour sauce, among other proposals.
