Spanish: El Espanol

This tavern is Munich's tapas expert! The sensational choice of more than 50 Spanish appetizers (€ 1.40–4.40) is proof of the culinary expertise of the chef at this traditional restaurant in Haidhausen. Aside from the freshly made tapas, Andalusian dishes round out a solid menu. Fried anchovies or cheese from La Mancha could open your dinner. The Pollo al ajillo(€ 12.50), chicken served with fried potatoes, is a must for garlic lovers. For those in favor of fish, the Plato Andaluz (€ 13.90) assembles a mix of Andalusian favorites including gilthead, salmon and prawns. Paella is served for two diners and more (€ 10.50–11.90 per person). Even though all specialties are on the menu every day, El Español has declared Sundays the “Día de tapas” and each Monday it is Paella Day, when the Spanish stew costs only € 8. The atmosphere at the restaurant is friendly and frolicsome, probably fueled by Sangría (€ 8), served in liters. Thursdays starting at 9 pm, a flamenco show heats up the snug space.
