A hidden gem in Madrid

On one of the many side streets to the busy Gran Via, in Madrid,  I found a wonderful little family owned restaurant named Abrasador. The free range beef and pork served in Abrasador restaurant comes directly from their farm in Toledan village of Menasalbas which they have run for the last 30 years.  By owning their  farm and  its livestock the family can control each phase of the meat process – straight from the farm to my plate. They claim to guarantee “quality and confidence” and they surely live up to this statement.

Julio is one of the proud owners of Abrassador.

I ordered beef with potato and egg. My bill, including a Coke, came only to 12 Euro which is a steal in Madrid as most restaurants around the Tourist areas tend to be more pricey. I am going back tomorrow for my second dinner. I went to Abrasador Restaurant opposite Hotel Best Western Arosa on Calle Salud.
