La Bodeguilla de Basilio information
Arrive here with an appetite, as you're presented with a complimentary plate of tapas when you order a drink, and not just a slice of dried-up cheese – typical freebies are a combo of quail eggs, ham, fried potatoes, lettuce hearts and zuchinis (courgettes).
Understandably, it gets packed out, so head to the restaurant at the back for specials such as patatas a lo pobre (potatoes with onions, garlic and peppers) or lamb chops. The walls are covered with fascinating clutter, ranging from old pics of Cuenca to farming tools.
