100 Montaditos or how to eat for almost nothing in Spain!
We’ve discovered this “restaurant” (which is a chain) recently and since then we went a few times. Our last time was last Friday!
It’s like a tapas bar except the food is not really tapas but small sandwiches called Montaditos. The restaurant is called 100 Montaditos because there are 100 in total, so there is a wide choice!! The principle is simple, you write down the numbers of the montaditos you want on a paper, drinks, and other extras (chips, olives…!) and then you order at the bar. You pay straight away and you get the drinks straight away. Then when it’s ready, they call your name and you go to the other side of the bar where you collect your order. They are usually quite quick (it depends how crowded it is!).
In addition to being super good, it’s really cheap. Some sandwiches are 2€ but most of them are 1€50 or 1€ and with three sandwiches you can be full! They also offer salads for 2€90 as well as chips, nachos (2€50) or olives (1€) to share. Drinks are also cheap, above all beer! A 50cl pint costs 1€, a soda is 1€20 and a glass of wine for 1€50. On Wednesdays and Sundays all the sandwiches are for 1€.
Here are some toppings you can have in your sandwiches:
– smoked salmon
– goat’s cheese
– garlic mayonaise
And many more!
Bon appétit 🙂
