I walked away quickly from La Gran Taberna to make it to my next tapas stop before it closed for the night.
Bodegas Castañeda, a local haunt before Rick Steves brought all the tourists in -
A row of sexy jamon legs greeted me as soon as I entered and I knew this was
my happy place
Bodegas Castaneda is a very typical Andalusian tapas bar which looks like it hasn't
been renovated in centuries. There are barrels of wine behind the bar, and absolutely
no chairs to be seen. You stand by the bar and eat and it's a lot of fun.
I was so hungry I made the mistake of ordering food before the server could give me free
tapas with my drink. For people traveling to Granada, remember that it is one of the very
few cities left in Spain where you get complimentary tapas with every drink you order.
Please take advantage! Haha! :)
At least I was given a generous pour
One of the beautiful things about traveling in Europe is that nobody cares what you do.
You can go about doing your own business and people won't judge.
Like ordering AND finishing this plate of assorted montaditos
Joselito Jamon Iberido de Bellota
Jamon de Trevelez con Manchego
Salmon, Avocado, Caviar
I wolfed down 6 montaditos in 15 minutes.
They were still at it when I walked out the door.
I love España.
