Although location is strategy and service is good but the foods were horrible. The chickpea soup was extremely salty. The Iberian pork was served cold with few strips of fries. Disappointed and a big let down by the previous good comments.

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music
venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair,
narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the
