3. Video clip Guide 😃

Calle Cava Baja is a wonderful road for a tapas crawl in Madrid. It is acquired about 50 tapas bars in just one road, and is in the coronary heart of the renowned La Latina neighbourhood. But with so several tapas bars, how can you select the very good from the lousy? Which is exactly where this video clip arrives in? Yoly and I made a decision to strike 7 of our favourites.

Listed here is Calle Cava Baja on a map:

one. Taberna La Concha: I appreciate this spot for a pre-lunch vermouth. They make their own vermouth, and serve it with a few excess substances to give it excess kick. They generally pair it with a mouth watering tapa. And their cooked tapas and wine checklist are also outstanding. A fantastic begin!

2. Diaz y Larrouy: The wine bar has been close to since 1992 and so is one of the grandfather’s of this road. They have thirty-40 wines for every glass, and serve mouth watering tostas. An outstanding choice for cava by the glass.

3. La Posada de la Villa: There has been a posada (or inn) in this article since 1642, and I adore hitting the bar in this aged tavern. It is more of a restaurant, but the bar is a fantastic spot to grab a glass and even just take pleasure in the free tapa. It is just entire of history!

4. La Posada del Dragón: These men do more present day tapas, and I appreciate their tomato salad. But over and above the meals, this spot is excess unique as beneath the glass flooring you can see the remains of the medieval walls that the moment surrounded Madrid.

Honourable mention: La Perejila – fantastic minimal tapas bar that just didn’t make the ultimate cut.

5. Casa Lucas: Famous on Calle Cava Baja. This spot is generally packed, but does mouth watering present day tapas and tostas, and they have an outstanding wine checklist. Do not be concerned if you can’t get a table – just squeeze on up at the bar!

6. Taberna Tempranillo: Yet another classic wine bar which is been close to for a amount of years. These men do an eclectic variety of present day dishes, as perfectly as tostas. And of training course fantastic wine by the glass. Also – the wine rack towards the back again wall is breathtaking!

7. Los Huevos de Lucio: Opposite is a renowned restaurant termed Casa Lucio. And in that restaurant they are renowned for their huevos estrellados (aka. Huevos rotos or damaged eggs). Opposite Los Huevos de Lucio is their tavern, and you can get the exact dish there. It is very simple, but it is mouth watering!

  1. Unfortunately only a bunch of the tapas bars in Cava Baja are worth visiting them. Most of them opened recently and don't offer the quality that's expected for a bar in such an iconic street.

  2. OMG guys… I'm sooooo HUNGRY!!!!!!! What an envy! Just a suggestion… Could you talk about the different kind of Spanish wines? I mean not only about red wines such as Rioja, Rivera del Duero, Ribeira Sacra, etc.. but about the different kinds or appellations of origin such as Albariño, Jerez, Manzanilla, Málaga, Cava and so on… It isn't the color. I mean the very different tastes and his alcohol graduation… They are so diverses!

  3. We not only stayed on Cava Baja on our recent trip, our AirBnB is one of the flats where you saw the "hidden" medieval wall! We had NO idea! (But we did wonder why there was a tour group looking at it one morning…) We stumbled into Casa Lucas just before closing one night. No crowds! Amazing tostas. Wish you'd done this video before our trip because we missed a few places. Next time!

  4. Hola James and Yoly Thanks for the vlog and information about Madrid cava baja street. I wish i know about the taps bars when i was here 3 years ago, need to go back and do food tour with you James. ❤ Spain more now after watching you're vlogs. Ps Sorry if i spelled Yoly name wrong. Australia

  5. Challenge, accepted. We will surely give it a try this year (but in the P.M.! lol). Love Lucio and La Posada de La Villa. I've been walking past Tempranillo for years without giving it a second thought. Now, I'm really looking forward to it.

    Thanks again J y Y for another great one. Saludos

  6. Once again…y’all have me drooling! Love Yoly’s eyes right after she takes a bite, you know if she likes it by the expression of her eyes first. Love those tomatoes. Here in the EEUU they’re called Heirloom Tomatoes and we pay a pretty penny for them compared to standard tomatoes, and ES uses them for everything. Love it! I love Rabo de Toro, that looked like an interesting take on the dish. Salmorejo is the absolute BEST! Great job to the pair of you No Ní Na!!!

  7. 3:10 Well-made point about Spain's wines: Rioja and Ribera del Duero are the famous ones but there are wines from Alicante and Jumilla, Extremadura and other regions which are just sensational, and amazing value too.

  8. Thank you two for creating such great content – Funny how you get more progressively silly as this episode goes on, I wouldn't be coherent as long XD! I've been in Madrid for this month (studying flamenco) and hope to catch one or two of these places you mentioned before I leave next week. Cheers~

  9. I went to some of these Tapas bars on my trip to Madrid and totally agree this street is amazing. loving your videos, very informative and I'm looking forward to our trip to Spain in 5 weeks time when we will visit Malaga before going on to Almunecar.

  10. My wife and I are in Madrid and did this tapas crawl tonight! So good! Only made 5 of the 7 because a couple were closed for Easter. Taberna Tempranillo was really special. Go and order the Pulpo special… Muy Rico!
