The Chocolatería San Ginés is a charming place. Part of it is actually due to the old decoration and furniture: the counter, the wall clock, the marble tables will not go unnoticed to the lovers of antiques, but what it is really famous for is the chocolate with churros (strips of fried dough): very thick and served in traditional white cups and typical waiters. The churros and porras (variety of churros, thicker) are to die for and even during the winter they put the tables outside in the narrow street, warmed up with lamps.
The customers at San Ginés are varied. It is a shame it is almost always packed, especially during weekends, when foreigners occupy the terrace and the place.
The price? Reasonable: a portion of chocolate with churros costs 3.50€. Good value for price.
In short, an amazing place to end up a party night with friends or to invite the kids for a snack.
One of the places that I like best in Malaga is Bodega Bar El Pimpi and not just because of its location on Granada Street in the old town, close to the Picasso Museum. It's a cozy and welcoming place, with Andalusian style décor, such as old pots and whitewashed walls. It has several rooms, across a couple of floors. It is an ideal place to go with friends or even with your partner.
An antique and legendary restaurant located under the Aqueduct of Segovia. A classic style, decorated with wooden walls and floors, upon entering you are encompassed by the heat of the ovens and the smell of suckling pig coming from the kitchen.
Of the most typical, a good suckling pig, red wine and something to nibble at, such as peppers or a warm sopa castellana (typically consisting of either water or broth, leftover bread, paprika, bay laurel, garlic and olive oil). The ritual for serving the suckling pig (which they cut with a plate) is performed by the inn-keeper. Prices are about 30 euros per person, depending on what you eat.
To go to Toledo is quite a gastronomical experience. In my case, it was one of the best gastronomical experiences I have ever had. Like that.
They recommended this place located in the old part of the city. For starters, the style is really nice since you feel like you are inside a cave. It has low tables with stools in the lower part of the restaurant. Upstairs they have another space, but we preferred to be in the tavern.
The menu had many options, but we chose to eat tapas: creamy boletus croquettes, duck with mango and chili sauce rolls, fried eggplant with honey sauce. I have to say that the first two tapas were truly delicious. The boletus croquettes were splendid; I want to go back to Toledo to eat them again. As a dessert we had the chocolate coulant with wild berries and cheesecake with cookies; both were perfect.
We were two persons and the portions were very satisfying, I also want to say that the waiter was very nice, he recommended us many things and he was very kind and attentive, I loved the service.
It was 15 € each, very well prices. Don’t leave Toledo without eating in this place, really!
This is a very original café near the wax museum. It’s decorated with fairy castles and trees that have faces and seem like they’re going to start talking to you at any moment.
The café is very good but the price, as happens with any concept cafe, can be somewhat pricey. There’s no table service, and it’s more of a place to see than to actually have a drink. That being said, it’s still a cool little theme bar that I’d suggest visiting.
Am I exaggerating to say that it is worth stopping in Burgos just to try this beer? Yes, yes, I know, the real reason is the Cathedral but the risk of sounding superficial, you can eat some great tapas and leave with a great memory of the Gothic art. Well, that happened to me and it would make particular impressions here. We ordered a sausage kebabs and I would definetely order them again! As almost everyone has highlighted here, unless you have had any 'bad' luck, this site is good, nice (take great care presentation) and dirt cheap. Quick service even though it is true that he was at the top and it was a weekday! I mean, I do not want to imagine what will be a Sunday. Anyway, about the places recommended and this, of course it is.
A really special place, with a very warm and romantic atmosphere. A cafe where you can try some exquisite dishes, coffees, infusions and especially cakes!!
One of the most interesting characteristics is that all the furniture of the place is for sell. So that apart from spending some good time having a great coffee, you can go out from there with a lamp or a table.
An ideal place to start the night, since they open at 6 pm, or to end it, since it closes at 2.30 am. I highly recommend it for a romantic evening or a good afternoon with friends.
My friend Edgar had already warned me that visiting the Los Coloniales tavern was mandatory when in Seville.
We were there this weekend and, really, it is an ideal place for lunch or dinner if you're in the centre of the city as it is very close to the cathedral.
It is advisable to arrive early if you do not want to queue. We arrived at 13:00 and were seated immediately (and there were more than ten of us...), but when we left there were queues to get a table.
We tried the patatas bravas (fried diced potatoes with warm spicy tomato sauce), the chicken with almond sauce, the rice of the day, and "tablas rocieras," one of their flagship dishes.
I highly recommend it, a great assortment of meats. It is an ideal place to order all the food to share. They serve very fast and the coffees are very good. Without a doubt, I will return to Los Coloniales on my next visit to Seville.
After trying many of them, I think this one is the best Japanese restaurant in Madrid, at least the most authentic one (I guess other ones like Kabuki are slightly better but not as authentic).
It is located in a narrow street behind Gran Vía, if you are coming from Moncloa, for example, the best is to go up Leganitos and look for a parking place. Something important before going: Tuesday is supposedly the best day to go, you will get the freshest fish.
Even though we already know some unconditional fans of Miyama, we ordered the sample menu (38€ each). Well, before that, before we sat down even, I was surprised by the fact that there were two tables with Japanese people wearing suits. Japanese people in a Japanese restaurant in Madrid? Yes! This tells a lot about the place.
The meal was delicious, full of delicacies, things I had never tasted in other Japanese in Madrid, at least not as good. We were told to order the "Ebi Fry", apparently impressive, but we decided to leave it for next time.
I also liked the atmosphere a lot, the only bad point was the smell (I'd rather have a kitchen smell than an air freshener).
Very good grade.
There is nothing like having a good host when you go to a city like Bilbao. My friend Mertxe took me to eat tapas and to enjoy the great atmosphere of this city’s classic.
When I got to Bilbao I didn’t have time to unpack and went directly to this place, it was the best way to start the trip. It is a luxury available to everyone, since if you don’t want to sit in the restaurant tables you can stay in the bar and taste some tapas or have a delicious pincho “moruno”, one of the best I’ve had as of late.
The Iruña has a curious combination of modernism and tradition. I couldn’t ask for anything else, it was the perfect way to start my vacation in Bilbao. Not to be missed!
I would rank Restaurante José María as the best restaurant in Segovia, ahead of the legendary Candide and Duque. It is probably the least-known of the three, but if you go, you're sure to come back. It features fantastic examples of the local cuisine, particularly tapas. Go at the weekend and you'll find it full of people there to enjoy the famous cochinillo - and here, I promise you, you'll find the best cochinillo in Segovia and, in my opinion, in all of Spain. Accompanied by good wine and a plate of beans, it's truly delicious! In one of the videos I show Jose Maria cutting the pork with the edge of a plate to show how tender the meat is; you don't even need a knife! Have a look on their website to learn more about their pigs and how they are raised. The restaurant has valet parking somewhere but I recommend parking nearby to allow yourself a bit of a walk to build your appetite for the feast that awaits you!
I went to this restaurant because ofthe great recommendations I read on minube, among other reason. I was not disappointed at all, everything was very tasty. According to what I understood, it is one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in Madrid. It is really small, better play it safe and reserve a table before going.
I will not start talking about Japanese techniques, it is enough to know what sashimi or wasabi is. I will tell you that the menu is very "pure" in terms of aesthetics but also very practical and complete. There are various dishes from which you can choose. If you do not like sushi, it is not a problem, there are many other things like teriyaki chicken (very good).
Something important, if you like beer you definitely should try one of the Japanese ones they offer (Asahi), apart from being very good, they serve it very cold, as it should be. I did not have dessert. For all those who like Japanese food, I recommend it 100%.
By the way, there are a couple of parking lots nearby if you need to park your car.
The Hard Rock Cafe, as its name indicates, is a global chain of restaurants based on the aesthetic and attitude of rock music. All the spaces are decorated with objects, clothes, and curiosities from rock artists throughout the decades.
However, this restaurant isn't just famous for its decor. The food could be described as classic American, and the most popular dishes are nachos, stuffed jalapenos, burgers, sandwiches, pastas, and salads. Everything I've tried (I've been on various occasions) was delicious. I especially liked the cheesecake! Your drinks are also constantly refilled in classic American style.
The service is really nice and they couldn't have treated us better. The only downside of eating at such a famous establishment is that it can get rather crowded and the queues can be over 2 hours long. Is it worth it in the end? Yes. The prices are reasonable provided that you don't go nuts.
There is also a shop with t-shirts, backpacks, buttons, etc. They're a bit more expensive than normal but the design is exclusive.
Mother! Excellent restaurant! Central, with many people but very well organized (you get seated immediately), homemade food, delicious and plentiful ... They had to pull us out! Ajajajaj ... And all for 11 € menu. First we ate beans with clams and pork, the second plate was escalopines cabrales and lamb and rice pudding for dessert and then cheese mouse. A bottle of water of 1.5 L, a Coke Zero (which is not in menu), bread (delicious) and a black coffee. All it cost: 24.90 €. The service was great and fast and I completely recommend this restuarant.
Tierra Astur has finally reached Gijón, located in front of the popular Poniente Beach, and in the basement of one of the most characteristic buildings in Gijon due to its ship appearance outside. Following the line of its older brothers Tierra Astur Gascona and Aguila, it offers traditional Asturian dishes and an extensive menu which includes many cheeses, stews, meats, fish and varied and rich desserts.
Cheers for cider and food from Asturias! A place I highly recommend, especially to go with someone from Asturias who feels homesick. Even though some say cider does not taste the same once beyond the Picos de Europa, I love this small piece of Asturias right in Madrid. If the weather makes it possible, the best is to go up to the second floor and enjoy the terrace and the fresh air. The prices are cheap and the products sensational. We had cider chorizo, cabrales cheese and a salty pie, even though the most typical is cider chicken. Dessert? Rice pudding... And some more cider.
I finally had the opportunity to go to one of the most traditional restaurants in Madrid. It is one of the places I had never been too despite living here. The restaurant is quite affordable (a set meal for some 20€ very nourishing).
It is located right in the center of Madrid, in La Bola street, more precisely. And it is a a magnificent restaurant. A unique place where you can enjoy in a very special way the most relevant traditional dish in Madrid: the cocido (stew with various types of meat, vegetables, potato, legumes... typical in Madrid).
It is a restaurant where the familiar aspect has been preserved. We could even go into the kitchen to see how they make, all week long, the delicious dish, in the most traditional way as they can.
I definitely recommend this experience. You cannot miss out on it during a visit of the most typical places of Madrid.
