The most frequent topic of conversation in Spain is food, and I love how much the Spanish love Spanish food above all others. Nowadays you can eat food from most parts of the world in Madrid (which is great!) but national dishes still rank number one and a popular place to enjoy some classics is Bodegas Rosell.
Food tastes are really egalitarian in Spain – there is nothing too fancy or too humble in Spanish cuisine to exclude any part of the population. It’s about great ingredients, simply prepared. Whenever I’m away, after a while I’m planning what I’m going to eat once I’m back in Madrid. Think food with bold honest flavours enjoyed with friends and family. Formal sit-down meals are fine but when relaxing on the weekend, the Spanish are happy to prop themselves up at a bar and enjoy plate after plate of shared dishes, accompanied by beer, wine, vermut or sherry.
Do you want to try some Spanish food Spanish style? Bodegas Rosell is the place. Try some stunning traditional dishes such as croquetas, boquerones en vinagre or tortilla de patata here and wash it down with a bottle of something from their extensive wine list. The more people you go with, the better – sharing is such fun, and these portions are sized with that in mind.
