Can’t make it to Andalucía? Your next best option is a trip to El Rincón de Jaén I. There are a few other locations in Salamanca and Guindalera (even one with an inviting outdoor terrace across from the tree-filled Eva Perón Park), but we prefer this outpost for the bar. It's overflowing with locals gobbling up manchego and chatting neighborhood gossip underneath dangling legs of Iberian ham. Speaking of ham—you’ll want to grab a plate of the cured butter-like acorn-fed jamón de bellota. Also don’t pass on the adobo, a marinated, fried cazon fish, or the shrimp drenched in garlic. If it’s coquinas season (just ask), order a plate of these teeny-tiny buttery clams, too.
