Patrons of Casa Alberto would rave about its vermouth on tap and variety of tapas en la barra. We didn't miss ordering the vermouth plus bottles of red wine, nor the celebrated huevos rotos with salmon and gulas. We likewise ordered a spinach salad and ceviche for starters.
And because we are in search of the best Callos Madrileña, we had that too. Both starters were good, along with the huevos rotos. As for the callos, I've tasted better elsewhere.
The ternera was tender and simply seasoned and fried. Not much to rave about really though I enjoyed the lamb chops more. Too bad they couldn't serve one of their famous dishes-- rabo de toro. Still, they're par to the course I saw s lady at the next table order a pulpo and immediately, I regretted not having the Galician delicacy in front of me.
We had room for dessert, para compartir. A fitting finish to our last dinner in Madrid. The bill went beyond budget, but then again, we truly enjoyed our 4 bottles of wine. No worries. Team Happy is... Happy 😄
