MADRID - MESÓN TXISTU
A Little of the beaten track, this is a very traditional Basque Restaurants serving up classics like:
Jamón Iberico de Bellota
Cogollos de lechuga con bonito (Lettuce hearts with tuna)
Almejas marinera (fisherman's clams)
Chipironcitos fritas (fried baby squid)
Tortilla de bacalao (cod omelette)
Rape a la plancha (grilled Monkfish)
Solomillo (sirloin steak)
Chuleta de ternera a la parrilla (grilled veal chop)
Postre especial de la casa (house desert)
Sorbete de limón (lemon sorbet)
The most popular dish is the famous Chuletón Txistu (which is slice raw and you cook yourself on hot plates). Can leave the room smokey if a lot of people have it!
Excellent and long wine list.
This place is very popular with Madrid footballer's and the cities bullfighters. It is better to sit in the main restaurant rather than the outside covered terrace. Don't come here if you are looking for modern molecular cooking this is traditional old school. The price is around €80pp which is not cheap but the quality is good, with old school stuffy service.
