Not even a year old and La Brunilda keeps going from strength to strength. Chef Diego Caminos (formerly with Zelai) branched out on his own last year and, along with his oenologist wife Esperanza and his sister Paula, created La Brunilda, now one of the best tapas bars in town. On the chalkboard menu you will find an enticing selection of traditional tapas with a twist, without the pretention and high prices that have become the norm at many of the new “gastrobars”. A charming and cosy ambiance in a beautifully renovated 18th century house, with great attentive service and amazing food, including tapas-sized salads (why aren’t more people doing this?). I also love the recent addition of a bar, which adds to the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Be sure to try the grilled presa with buttery sweet potato, the chipirones with eggy migas, and of course the best mini beef burger in town (I call it the “crackburger” because it’s so addictive – and I don’t even like mini burgers!) served with a soy mayo and crispy yucca chips.
