Tucked away in a narrow street off the Plaza Cascorro, a stone's throw from the Rastro market, is this century-old slice of old Castizo Madrid. It's a tiny taberna where you sit on benches at basic wooden trestle tables and enjoy the place's one and only main dish: cocido. The very filling set menu includes wine and dessert. If you feel like a tapa beforehand, you can sample morcillas de León (blood sausage from León) or bacalao frito (fried cod) at the bar -- or a caldo (consommé) in cold weather -- but don't forget to leave room for that prodigious main meal. As there are only two sittings -- both at lunchtime -- you'll need to be prepared for a siesta afterward anyway. Reservations at least one day beforehand are essential.
