malacatin1This tavern, founded at the end of the 19th century, is still run by the fourth generation of the founding family. Its best-known dish is Madrid-style chickpea stew and it makes the popular claim that “no guest has been able to finish it” in all the 120 years that the restaurant has existed. José Alberto, the present owner, has picked up the baton of the gastronomic heritage and still prepares the Madrid-style tripe in its kitchen, as tradition dictates, as well as other tasty dishes like salt cod with tomato and tuna steaks garnished with pisto manchego (stewed tomatoes and vegetables). Malacatín is located just off the Plaza de Cascorro, in the most castizo part of Madrid. Castizo refers to things that are authentically Castilian, as opposed to French-influenced, and came into popular use in the 18th century. This traditional tavern used to serve small glasses of wine in the street in the 1960s, but it is now an eatery that attracts many well known public figures.
