Went to this small old restaurant to taste the food from Madrid. Ordered 5 Fried intestines, with bread and two beers. Food was good (taste is not for everyone). Didnt like the service though. They treat you as doing you a favor, or as if its free food. Price was affordable by the way.

Just because they offer this special "cuisine", they think they are the best and they aren't. Service is awful and the place looks poor maintained (even though it could be very nice because it's an old building). The food was ok.

This is might be the last bastion for this kind of food in Madrid, if you want something really authentic and are ready to take up a dare. Located near where once Madrid's slaughterhouse was. This...

This is the Madrid equivalent of St John Bread & Wine, minus the price tag and the comfy surroundings. You find yourself sitting in a no-nonsense canteen in a residential neighbourhood off the beaten track. The menu is wall-to-wall offal, such as lamb's intestine, sweetbreads, tripe and other things Google couldn't find translations for. (Bring an appetite AND a sense... More
