Here we go again Madrid - Episode V: Juan Bravo 25

My last day in Madrid my friend Beba took me to a place completely new to me, Juan Bravo 25. The place has the regular restaurant dinning menu, also you can enjoy their terrace in the boulevard just in front of the restaurant, or if you’re more into some tapas the bar is the place to go. They opened for business in 1985 and was recently refurbished. A great character and atmosphere, offering good food.

The Bar

Bar Menu

I had two pintxos, the first one a mini wagyu burger and shredded potato chips, excellent burger, quite tasty, the second one a recommendation of my friend Eduardo vegetable lasagne, again really good flavours, in conclusion both tapas were excellent. Juan Bravo 25 is a place I definitely will come back in the future to enjoy and discover more of their other options.

Tapa Wagyu Burger 

Bravo meaning in English is angry, and the first thing that comes to my mind when I heard angry is the Seinfeld episode “The Marine Biologist”.

George: So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys, I was terrified! But I pressed on and as I made my way passed the breakers a strange calm came over me. I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things but I tell you Jerry at that moment I was a marine biologist!
Elaine: George I was just reading this thing in the papers, it's amazing!
George: I know I was just telling them the story.
Kramer: Come on George, finish the story.
George: The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli!
George: I got about fifty-feet out and then suddenly the great beast appeared before me. I tell you he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence he gave out a big bellow. I said, "Easy big fella!" And then as I watched him struggling I realized something was obstructing his breathing. From where I was standing I could see directly into the eye of the great fish!
Jerry: Mammal.
George: Whatever.
Kramer: Well, what did you do next?
George: Then from out of nowhere a huge title wave lifted, tossed me like a cork and I found myself right on top of him face to face with the blow-hole. I could barely see from all of the waves crashing down upon me but I knew something was there so I reached my hand felt around it and pulled out the obstruction!
Kramer: What is that a Titleist? A hole in one eh.
