Lunching on Anchovy-and-Tomato-Sandwich?
The Parque del Buen Retiro is one of Madrid's iconic outdoor spots: acres and acres of green and shade--the city's beloved lung and playground...

...and several outdoor terrace-cafés dot the grounds for when you need a coffee, ice-cream, beer, horchata, anchovy-and-tomato 'bocadillo.'

My wife shied away, preferring an equally authentic egg-and-potato 'tortilla' sandwich...But for a pungent counterpoint to the crusty white bread, do like so many Spaniards and opt for the little fishies...
