This is a super local bar in Valencia. It's know for having the best tortilla around. Be aware that if you don't speak Spanish, the lady working there mightn't be the friendliest! Ask for a "pincho de tortilla y una caña" and you'll be set! P.s. this is basically all they serve!

A restaurant mixed with a local Valencian sport. You can come and pay to see this game played by local teams (there's a court inside). I've not eaten here, but you can come for a drink or just to watch the game. Check the website for the times/dates of matches.
