Madrid. November, 2013

I have never met my Facebook friend Indira, a Cuban woman now living in Madrid, but she has infallibly recommended some wonderful places to me both in Havana and in her current hometown. Like Melo’s Bar in the Lavapiés neighborhood. “Por ultimo, te sugeriria, para comer algo genia, un sitio repleto de gente, pero donde ponen las mejores croquetas de madrid y unas 'zapatillas gallegas' de lacón y queso de tetilla de morirse.” And, yes, it was filled with people, had the best croquettes in Madrid...and the “zapatillas gallegas” (a half of one is shown above) of ham and tetilla cheese were indeed “to die for.” It was so good, we ate here both nights we were in Madrid last November. Muchisimas gracias, Indira.
