Cien Montaditos

9 09 2010

In the midst of piso-hunting today, Sam and I managed to meet up at 100 Montaditos, a chain of restaurants known for – can you guess? – one hundred different teeny sandwiches. You order via checking boxes on an extensive menu card, which includes the hundred sammies plus drinks and such. I went for tortilla con salsa brava, carne con guacamole, and jamon york con cebolla crujiente y compote de frutas rojas, plus a cold caña.

This “caña” was also a euro. Jeez. No wonder this place is popular with Erasmus kids.
