Tortilla de patatas en madrid


The project of Ricardo A. and José Manuel Romero, two young brothers from Cádiz who passed through the kitchens of Aponiente and El Bohío and landed in the capital with a simple but suggestive proposal that honors their land, as tasty as their omelette. With plenty of onion and little curd, it is one of the most acclaimed in Madrid.

The success of their omelette with little curd has led them to occupy other neighborhoods in Madrid. Its name claims what they do best, tortillas of all tastes that come out of their “laboratory” to conquer the most nonconformist. Do you like it without onion? Don’t worry, you can find it here, but also with onion, and with zucchini, chistorra, trumpets of death … difficult to stay with just one.
