Mesón El Yunque
Mesón El Yunque:
Traditional tapas bar and restaurant with outside seating in Plaza San Miguel Bajo
El Yunque has been open for many years and is one of the original bars in Plaza San Miguel. It is famous for its sangría and still serves a wide selection of "raciones" (plates of food for sharing). The dishes have evolved with time and there are choices to suit all tastes.
For a starter we had "cogollos de lechuga" (lettuce hearts drizzled with garlic fried in olive oil) which was very tasty, healthy and not too many calories.
The waiter was very helpful and the service was quick.
On terrace bars in Spain the most busy time is about 2.30 which is when Spanish people eat. A good time to go to a "terraza" is about 1.30pm before the rush starts. (this advice is especially useful on weekends).
