Chiringuito Bambu Wins!

Congratulations to Chiringuito Bambu for winning the La Herradura “Ruta de Tortilla” competition for the best tortilla.

It’s always a bit of a wonder how classic tortillas, using just potatoes, onions, eggs & olive oil , can vary so much.  The amount of sweetness is governed by the cooking and caramelisation of the onions, for example.  Often served lukewarm with Ali Oli, a thick home made garlic mayonnaise – or eaten as the filing for a bocadillo – they are always welcome on the table.

Bambu successfully beat off competition from 16 other local restaurants and scooped up awards from the deputy mayor, Juan Jose Ruiz Joya, for “Best tortilla”, “Best attention and service” and “Most original”.  The winning tortilla will feature as next Saturdays tapa when you buy a drink there.
