Octopus in vinaigrette. Paella blooming with clams and shrimp and mussels. Fluffy Serrano ham with sliced lomo pork loin and rich spicy chorizo loaded with paprika. Simple spinach with pine nuts. Crisp-skinned blood sausage. Almond and garlic gazpacho. Café Madrid is Dallas' best tapas restaurant, re-creating this Spanish gustatory ritual with keen exactitude. Savor each of these little plates with a tiny glass of sherry, a stubby tumbler of Rioja or a sip of perfumey Albarino. Your mouth will never run dry.
Pamplona's Running of the Bulls is an event of ultimate machismo, with men hurdling down narrow streets, pursued by rampaging half-ton bulls. Cafe Madrid's running of the bulls might not be as thrilling thanks to the foam horns of its “bull,” but... More »
A week ago, two friends and I ate dinner at Cafe Madrid. One had never eaten there -- shame on her. The other friend and I remarked how we both loved Cafe Madrid's tapas but hadn't been there in awhil... More »

To fully plumb the pleasures of tapas, it is essential to begin with a small cylindrical glass of fino, just a couple of ounces. Fino sherry (Domecq La Ina, $3.95) is a liquid throb that inflames and focuses the taste buds. Sherry sipping is a... More »
Incredible flans (Chocolate and Pumpkin but get there earky as they only make so much) The shredded beef dishes are to die for; Love the potato and Green Chili Soup. Always have a sweet spot for Stewarts, Jones or whatever small label sodas they sell, I've gone there for 30 plus years and despite having seen pot roast and little feat and plump and umphreys mcgee there over the years I've missed ever single Watermelon Thump, even when I worked for KPFT and had friends in most of the bands playing. Theressa Anderson may have been the most memorable gig there. Other than McGonigles which has a fe times a month some exceptional acts from the last 5 decades of hip alternative music, I cannot recommend a better restaurant with outdoor patio and music. You don't even need to be high to enjoy, though I suppose drinking doesn't hurt.
Jerry Jeff Walker immortalized it in song. Chain restaurants often lace their margaritas with it. Even Boone's Farm has a version of the concoction. In spite of all that, we love that sangria wine. And at Spanish tapas bar Cafe Madrid, we really love it. Their sangria is a mixture of red wine and...well, we can't tell you the rest, something about a "trade secret." But whatever, the stuff is good, and in the summer months, you can opt for a white sangria that's made with cava, a Spanish... More »
Tapas and tarps have a lot in common. A tarp is a waterproof cover designed to keep things from getting wet. Tapas, which means "covers," came into prominence in Spain in the 19th century when barflies began topping the mouths of little sherry glasses with slices of cured ham or sausage to keep out the dust and flies. Flies apparently are as fond of a chilled glass of bone-dry sherry as anyone. Though why a Spaniard would prefer flies socializing on a slice of cured meat to drunk and... More »
