Madrid Tapas Parade is the effort to comprise in one event the most
representative tapas of the country, all at a most atmospheric spot: La Taperia
de la Abuela-a traditional tapas restaurant situated in an early XVII Old Madrid
Sangria is the official drink of the event. The recipe belongs to one of the
owners of La Taperia and includes more than ten different ingredients.
Ensalada de Codorniz
Ensalada de Codorniz (quail salad) A dish of savory quail -- seasoned with an
aromatic rub of lavender and black pepper -- sided by a lot of vitamins and
fiber coming from lettice, tomatoes, red peppers and stunted onions.
This is currently the most popular tapa in Madrid. And we`re not speaking of the
typical ham and cheese croquette, but instead a delicious and healthy one filled
(Calamares a la Romana)
Breaded calamari deep-fried in olive oil, one of Spain most traditional tapas.
Our tapa stands out from any calamari you may have tried before due to the
tenderness of the meat, the perfect amount of salt and the quality of the *olive
* We use the king of the frying oils: Extra-Virgin Olive Oil made of the
Cornicabra vareity. The oil of Cornicabra leaves no aftertaste nor any
unpleasant greasiness and browns the food to a shinny gold.
Spain´s signature dish is often a victim of its own success. In an attempt to
satisfy customer demand, most city-centre restaurants serve microwave reheated
paella since a really good one can`t be made in less than half an hour
Duelos y quebrantos
Mentioned by Cervantes in the opening lines of Don Quixote de la Mancha, "duelos
y quebrantos" is eggs scrambled with the staples found in the traditional La
Mancha kitchen -- salt, potatoes, pork, ham and chorizo. It´s a meal in itself.
Fig Bonbons & cream
Figs filled with chocolate and liqueur and covered with dark chocolate. A
low-fat, healthy bonbon.
