Tel: 34 915 432 821's insider take:

In Madrid, tortilla is served in almost every bar—and almost every bar claims that theirs is the best in the city. At Casa Paco, the tortilla is indeed in the running for first prize, and here there are more varieties of the classic dish than anywhere else, with options on display under a glass case that runs the length of the bar. Pull up a stool and order a pincho (small piece) of anything from the original (potato and onion) to Roquefort and salmon, foie gras, or our favorite, the sirloin and caramelized onion version. This family-owned operation has been serving about 80 tortillas a day since the early 1950s, and the third generation is now waiting tables. Apart from the bar, there's a cramped little dining room that fills daily with local workers who come for the budget three-course menu. For an authentic look at Madrid, far from the tourist scene, you can do no better.—Guy Fiorita

Open Mondays through Saturdays 7 am to midnight.
