I had the one w spider crab cream but the Gilda was out. I did have the individual tortilla at Bodega Donostirria Gros. They recommended the Indurain but I was too full. I’ll go back for that or the Completo tomorrow and the Gilda as the “original” place you mention is supposedly closed tomorrow. I saw it on the Pintxos app you recommended
Is the menu at Antonio Boulevard exactly the same as that in Bar Antonio? Will head there for pintxos
Cocktail week starts Monday, September 25 (we had cocktails at LOVO on Echegaray on Monday because Viva Madrid was closed and Salmón Guru couldn’t take us because of a staff shortage). There’s also a new cocktail place on Echegaray called Mauz Madrid that I haven’t tried.
If you’re into craft cocktails, Calle Echegaray in Letras is the place to go.
Salmón Gurú (no rezzies) and Viva Madrid are owned by barman Diego Cabrera.
The Hotel Tapas Tour that’s going on now ends this Sunday.
Speaking of the best tortilla in Spain-

The other competitors were from A Coruña, Betanzos (the land of the runny tortilla), Vitoria, Madrid (Taberna Pedraza & La Falda), Logroño (Tizona), Bilbao (Bar Sorginsola), San Sebastián (Bar Antonio), plus others I haven’t visited.
