Puerto Rico Restaurant
We were lucky to have found a really good restaurant in the center of Madrid. So many other people concur by the queue that forms outside the restaurant on most days.
There are only 14 tables in the restaurant. And it just takes a few minutes after opening when all the tables are spoken for.
One of my favorite appetizers is berenjena. Puerto Rico serves thinly sliced eggplant dipped in egg yolk. I can eat a plateful and why not? It's only €2.75. I also like the fish soup with rice and a sprinkling of shellfish. The menu of the day is €11 and includes an appetizer, main entrée, dessert and beverage or tea or coffee. (This was the price in November 2015.)
The main entrée is served with salad or two scoops of rice. Bread is extra. I ordered trucha (trout) a la plancha and filet of chicken a few times. These were my favorites from the menu.
Puerto Rico Restaurant is on Calle Chinchilla, 2 near Plaza del Carmen in Madrid. It opens at 1 p.m. and closes at midnight. Metro stops are Gran Via, Sol or Callao.
