In the Great Tortilla de Patata Debate, Madrileños fall into different camps: onion or no onion, golden crust or runny egg—there’s even debate on how to chop the potatoes or flip the omelet itself (historically, many a señora has chucked her homemade tortilla in the trash after even just slightly overcooking it). Figure out which side you fall on with a trip to Pez Tortilla, a safe space for you to decide how you like it, pressure-free.

The casual joint is often packed with groups of friends that want to chat, drink craft beer, and snack, so you might be relegated to standing, especially during crowded lunch and dinner hours. Choose from different kinds of tortillas that feature ingredients like caramelized peppers, ham, truffle, or goat cheese. No matter which you go for, Pez’s versions have a drippy, runny center versus a well-done crust, so if raw(ish) egg isn’t your thing, opt for the crispy croquettes instead
