El Tabernaculo
I came to El Tabernaculo with curiosity aroused by Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown. The thought of a Semana Santa-themed bar where Jesus and Mary photos galore and spicy sausage comes with a nice glass of wine was very enticing. What I found in El Tabernaculo was even better. I walked in around 3pm and found only Don Fernando and his son, also Fernando. We spoke about Granada, history, politics, food and the hidden gems of the city. Don Fernando prepared some special tortilla for me and played his Semana Santa playlist. Young Fernando showed me a photo of his son and invited me to give them a call when I come back to Granada so they could show me around from a local's perspective. This bar and its owners absolutely embody the Andalusian hospitality.
