Madrid Classic: Painting at the original Las Bravas (Callejón del Gato, 3 Madrid), the place where patatas bravas, a Madrid-origen specialty, originated.



* * * * *

Painting at the original Las Bravas (Callejón del Gato, 3 Madrid), the place where patatas bravas, a Madrid-origen specialty, originated (the owners have a registered patent on the sauce).  Patatas bravas subsequently became a tapas famous around the world. This incredible painting is one of my all-time favorites of a culinary subject (second only to the original that used to hang over the bar at La Bravas and for years hung there with a big tear in it).
