Order tortilla with potatoes, eggs and onions in a local restaurant for a breakfast and feel yourself like a real Spaniard.
Once it was a food for the poor, but nowadays tortilla is served in the best restaurants of Spain. Also it is used as a very popular tapas to beer in bars.
Traditional tortilla is made from potatoes, eggs, onion, olive oil and many people think it's a kind of omelette, although it's more like pie consistency.
The most popular kind of tortilla in Madrid is called "tortilla brava" - it's a little bit smaller that a traditional one and is served with a spicy sauce.
