$$$$Perfect For:Small PlatesEating At The Bar

The Mercado de Antón Martín is where to walk to different food stalls (or learn to stomp and clap at the city's most famous flamenco school on the top floor). For tapas, Doppelgänger stands out for its Spanish dishes fused with spicy Asian and South American flavors, like ají, curries, and kimchi. Its concise menu only has about eight dishes—and about the same number of tables, including bar seating, so reserve ahead. You can't go wrong whether you go for the €40 per person tasting menu, or just order a few a la carte. Whatever you choose, don’t miss the tangy Adobix, a tempura catch of the day topped with fermented soy and anis jam—it’ll leave you wondering how they managed to perfectly mesh so many flavors into a single bite—or the tamale with codfish dripping in zesty yellow aji, lemon, and aioli.
