    Spanish omllete

    by ruki Written Oct 16, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is my favorite dish. They cold Tortilla or Spanish Tortila. You can found in every tapas bar in Madrid. They prepare omelet with eggs, onion and potatoes and if you like you can put some season vegetables and Spanish sauce. So simple but very delicious! It can be eaten hot or cold.

    Since I was a child, we used to stop here for a cake. It seems that Napolitanas are the most famous ones, but I always love one of all cream... (I am not much a sweet lover, but cream is my vicious lol).

    As Jose Villalba recommendation, we tried in our last time some Napolitanas, they were really nice, but the creamy one is still my favourite hehehehehe ...

    Directions: At Puerta del Sol, corner with Calle Mayor
