Bodega La Ardosa


C. Colón, 13, Madrid
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This classic Madrileño tavern dates back to 1892, and it’s the ideal place for sitting, chatting, and drinking while getting a dose of Spanish history. Although this is a prime bar for day drinking and just hanging out, this is the spot to really dig into traditional dishes from all over Spain. Ardosa’s tortilla de patata is one of the best in Madrid, the salmorejo, Córdoba’s version of gazpacho, is creamy and filling, and you should always order plates of Iberian ham, crisped croquetas, huevos rotos, and stewed tripe.
