A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Con un simple huevo de gallina se pueden hacer maravillas. Y si no, que se lo digan a Santiago Vaca de Osma y a Manuel Herrera, creadores de este maravilloso proyecto gastronómico que, en menos que canta un gallo, se ha convertido en una de las tabernas más aclamadas del Barrio de las Letras. Su carta es corta, pero atractiva de principio a fin. Los huevos de gallina criada en libertad dan mucho juego: tortilla de patatas agrias con cebolla dulce, huevos fritos con puntilla, pisto con huevos fritos, croquetas de huevo…También presumen (porque pueden) del jamón y el solomillo de Teruel que, por cierto, va acompañado de una salsa Rusticana, cuya receta es ‘top secret’. Y si la comida es de diez, no hay que perder de vista su bodega, su cerveza Mahou bien tirada o su vermú Martínez Lacuesta.

INSIDER tip

Si eres goloso, deja hueco para su tarta de zanahoria y nueces acompañada con salsa de queso porque es muy top. Eso sí, siempre vuela.

    The Food was pretty good and decent prices. We had a reservation for three but we came with 4 people and it wasn’t a problem at all.

    We are a family of six, who dined at El Gallo Canta today. We echo the previous reviews that found a warm welcome, excellent traditional cuisine, and a very good selection of Spanish wines. We wish that our stay in Madrid were longer so that we could make a return visit.

    We really liked that place and the attention from personal. The place is cozy and very nice. We ordered jamon like an appetizer and it was pretty good. Just one thing that my boyfriend ordered Ensalada Rusa and there was too much mayo in there and it was impossible to feel any flavor except mayo. But they changed the dish to another and never charged for salad. That’s great!

    Very nice experience, just disappointed we could not get any tap water, so no way to drink for free (which is unusual in Madrid). The food was wery good, especially for its price with the 50% discount.

    A real geme in the center of Madrid. Simple dishes with excellent ingredients, good wine, good service, nice atmosphere and a light bill.
