Best for Cheap eats - Expert review of Las Bravas
Those fried potato chunks slathered in a spicy sauce that are now ubiquitous in tapas bars throughout Spain, not to mention the rest of the world, were invented right here, and patented back in 1960. They claim the bravas sauce is made only with natural ingredients. The recipe is of course a well-guarded secret, but paprika is the dominant flavour. You can't really say you've been to Madrid unless you've been here.
As well as the patatas bravas, the tortilla is very popular, as are the fried pigs' ears (really), octopus and croquettes. And of course, it's salsa with everything.
Usually pretty frantic and raucous, in a works' canteen sort of way.
Shiny-faced staff in orange shirts perfectly personify their signature dish as they dash about laden with plates and beers.
Between Puerta del Sol and Plaza de Sana Ana.
You'll have difficulty spending 10 euros.
Calle Espoz y Mina 13 and Pasaje de Matheu 5, both of which are very close by.
