NileGuide Expert tip:
The smaller second location, which is the original, is just a few blocks away on Calle General Luque 1.
La Gorda serves delicious traditional tapas and sets itself apart from the rest with a modern, vibrant interior and lively ambience. Bright red walls and tables create an energy that attracts guests looking for a fresh alternative to the traditional wooden tapas bar. This is a popular spot with large groups because of the ample seating room, including long tables on the second floor that allow for conversation and plate-sharing. Tables fill up quickly on weekends, when you may have to wait at the downstairs bar, but it's worth it. Tapas are delicious and mostly traditional, like the solomillo con salsa de almendras
(pork tenderloin with a creamy almond sauce), and a few choices spice up the selection, like the garbanzo beans with spinach. You'll also find fresh salads, tostadas
(open-faced toast with toppings), and a few mains on the menu. Portions are generous, and the food is so delicious that you'll want to order more. Tapas 2€, Mains 6€.
