Arallo Taberna – we are talking tapas

IMG_1869I had been hearing a lot of great buzz about Arallo Taberna which belongs to Amicalia  Group. They which recently opened in Madrid after the success of the one in La Coruña but it has taken us a bit more than anticipated to try it out. We finally did a couple of weeks ago and I have to say that I thought that it was spot on. The industrial, layed-back ambiance is ideal for informal lunches and dinners. You can choose between dining at a table or at the long counter which was my choice since it opens right onto their wall to wall kitchen. I always enjoy watching chefs at work and marvel at their speed and precision.

Arallo is bold and daring and they are not afraid to mix it up. The result being some delicious tapas that leaves you wanting more and longing to come back.

To give you a feel of what their tapas are like…
