La casa del abuelo: paradise for shrimp people Whenever you shuttle through the century-old shop, you will always be attracted by this store although most people just come here to have a drink I ordered a ham to stand and hurried away and I think my favorite is their open window sill sit down and order a sangria wine with a freshly cut ham Gambas shrimp with hot smoke, looking at the Spaniards walking outside the street is leisurely or anxious... [Note] Although this shop tastes good but ugly me Still have to say that in the front this store will be charged because you are not a local person may also be related to the receptionist who receives you forcibly give you pre-meal bread and count it on the bill (price is at least 5 euros) ) In addition to the amount of food we ordered and the amount of bread is still not worth at least 10 ohms the number of seats here is poor, basically standing and eating this is also Spain More unique snack bar but pull a few friends to stand and eat while drinking more ground gas this home Although there is a place where I spit, but the decoration is still very close to my appetite La Casa Del Abuelo was built in 1906 It is said that Andy Warhol often visit this place is a paradise for shrimp people [onion Oil Shrimp Scallion with Spicy Olive Oil Shrimp tastes thicker and later knows that it can be eaten with bread. shrimp is still very fresh. The control of the shrimp is quite good. Through this artistic window, you can see the chef's main dish in the store here - Scallion Shrimp [Spanish ham] This is what we eat in Spain The first ham is a small plate full of 25 euros! Nearly 200 RMB will be eaten in one breath... However, it also proves that one point is worth a penny. It is not expensive. It doesn't make sense [Sangria wine]/ Hh/ Originally, we just came here because of the shrimps here. but the "charge more than our fees" waiter Xiao Ge has been strongly recommending their home Sangria from time to time to give a thumbs up then think of a drink by the way But the taste is exactly the same as what he described. "Good!" [again note] This store is very recommended but everyone must see the bill if they want to spend it! 2 cup Sangria, one ham, one scallion shrimp (pre-prand bread that is forcibly counted) total price 52 euros
