Museo del Jamón Restaurant Review

: With hundreds of hams hanging from every available space, the Museo del Jamón is a must-see for every culinary curious traveler. Moving through to the restaurant, elegant carpentry frames large mirrors and gilded detailing to create a warm and inviting dining space that’s perfect for indulging in traditional Spanish fare. Start with a selection of tapas such as olives, ham croquettes and boquerones before moving on to the larger “ración” dishes. Order the essential jamón Serrano and chorizo selections, as well as plates of tortilla Española, octopus, garlic mushrooms and grilled prawns. To drink, sip on refreshing glasses of ice-cold draught beer or choose from the list of Spanish wines. We suggest a bottle of Valdepeñas white wine. Finish with fruit salad and yoghurt, crema Catalana, chocolate ice cream, and revitalizing shots of espresso.
