A Spanish tavern that serves only mushrooms!

DSC_0269 Don’t these mushrooms look absolutely irresistible? They are! Filled with extra virgin olive oil and flavoured with garlic and herbs, they are served in a lovely little tavern called Maison del Champinon (House of mushrooms)  in Madrid’s Old Quarter, very close to the famous Plaza Mayor. Part of the fun is to not follow the map, but the winding cobbled alleys that lead you to some of Spain’s oldest and most fabulous pubs and taverns.
