Almendro 13 – Madrid, Spain

Almendro 13 - Madrid, Spain

So we had a few hour layover in Madrid so decided to head into town to try some tapas. It was easy (about 45min) by metro to reach La Latina – the area in town to try tapas. Just remember that lunch doesn’t start until about 1:00pm (at the earliest) and more likely, 1:30pm. La Latina is known for its streets full of tapas bars so is a good place to start. [ad]

Get to Alamendro early since it filled up quite fast, possibly as a testament to it being one of the better tapas restaurants (no-frills) in Madrid. This is a self-service restaurant and bar. Go to the food window and order one of their specialties – rosca (large bagel-like sandwiches which they grill to order filled with a filling of your choice – easy to pick out since they are piled in the window in front of the counter) and the huevos rotos (deep fried potato chips covered in a sunny side egg and cured ham bits). Delicious but heavy. Head to the bar to order any drinks you want. Then wait for them to ring the bell and call out your order – go pick it up and pay for it – enjoy.
