We are super fans of Ponzano street! Is in the revived Chamberí district and it’s one of our favorite stops to get a taste!
– Sala de Despiece
The long, sleek counter and the walls made from pastel-colored Styrofoam blocks are undoubtedly modern. The tapas plates, however, are classics. Please ask for razor clams from Pontevedra, fried pimiento peppers, or the solomillo cenital. Go as early as possible in order to get a good place as it always crowded. No bookings can be made.
Plates from the southwest city of Cádiz are the focus, including tapas such as chilled carrot coins tossed with cumin and garlic; a salad of potatoes, tuna, and mayonnaise; and half a dozen varieties of croquettes (the mushroom and ham ones are particularly good). If you’re looking for something more substantial, order one of the entrées, like the seafood plate with fried calamari, anchovies, and cazón,a small, meaty shark.
Canned food, seafood and “cañas” in a busy brewery with a large bar where the cans decorate the wall. Fide keeps a typical Steel “barra” and napkins on the floor. The atmosphere couldn’t be more cheerful, with customers that have been going there for ages and super seafood. For all that, is a great choice for aperitivos.
– Restaurante Asador Los Arcos de Ponzano
Segovian roasts and Spanish cuisine in an intimate room with exposed brick, still life and wall paper. Highlights of the meat-heavy offerings include Iberian ham, roast suckling pig, lamb chops, roast lamb shank, and the signature housemade rice with morcilla,or blood sausage.
– La Contraseña
Gin tonics, tapas and Mediterranean recipes in a versatile cosmopolitan space with room, interior patio and bar. The menu is quite satisfactory and not expensive. You can also have informal tapas at the entrance in an open space. Favorite dishes include steak tartare topped with a quail egg, white asparagus doused in peppery olive oil, and deep-fried eggplant with honey and salmorejo.
– El Doble
Few bars like El Doble, for authentic, typical and nice, in their own way! It’s one of those bars of “all life bars”. Each cane is accompanied with seafood preserves, but also have a complete menu of servings, among which stand out potato chips, belly, razor or cooked prawns.
“Food tastes better if shared!” They make Argentine pizza, in a wood oven and with local and seasonal ingredients: Pizza in the Argentinian way! The best of this place is the fact that picsas are made for sharing with friends! Don’t make a booking just go early:)
