Casa Rua: Bocadillo de calamares
Casa Rua is one of those places that fed our fathers and grandfathers. The bocadillos are excelent however the plase itself changes it spirit.
When we ate there is 2005 the place was full of local men and the bill was still writen down with chock on the bar.
In 2007, place was full of tourists and we got bill printed out of computer with the touch screen.
World is moving forward!!! Catch it if you still can!!!
On the Plaza Mayor, famous for its "Bocatas calamares" ... do not know how many years i have come to this place since i was a child with my parents... but i have to say that they are not as nice as they used to be in the old times snif snif
Casa Rua: Squid sandwich anyone?
A small bar located just off the Plaza Mayor. It is very popular at lunchtime and seems to be notorious in Spain, for its main dish.
Favorite Dish: Bocata de Calamares, that is fried squid in a large bread roll. Have it with a beer its lovely.
The place for Bocatas de Calamares: Casa Rua
"Bocata de Calamares" (squid sandwich) is a typical cheap speciality of Madrid. You can have them in many places around the Plaza Mayor, but my favourite is Casa Rua, in a little street between Plaza Mayor and San Miguel Market.
You can have it there with a beer or wine, or take it away and eat it at the Plaza Mayor, admiring the square buildings.
Favorite Dish: Sandwiches of calamari, green peppers, tortilla, chorizo, patatas bravas...
