We’re the kind of people that firmly believe that any bar worth its salt in this country needs to serve a good potato salad, a good Spanish tortilla, or some good croquetas.

Which is why we focused our attention from the get-go on award-winning recipes, like Big Manu’s croquetas (head chef in our Santa Faz Probar); the white sauce made from fresh cow’s milk and the famous “Joselito” serrano ham melts in your mouth. The creamy texture is rounded off with a crispy breaded crust that makes these croquetas simply irresistable.

And apparently we weren’t the only ones that thought so, because J. Capel himself – founder and president of Madrid Fusion – encouraged us to submit them, along with another 5 finalists, to the World’s Best Croqueta competition.
