Quieter than most of its boisterous street neighbors, this small quaint bar with just a few tables offers a short but creative selection of local wines and homemade tapas. Some of the food favorites include the Carinena (grilled pork sirloin with caramelized onion), Madrid (scrambled eggs with onion, morcilla [blood pudding], and pine nuts in a tomato base), and huevos a la Macarena (eggs in puff pastry with mushrooms, fried artichokes, fried
ham, béchamel, and pine nuts). Since it gets packed easily, try to drop by early both at lunch and dinner times.
