Chef Jose Andres dishes on why he put Tortilla Sacromonte on the menu at Bazaar Meat.
José Andrés doesn’t care if you order the tortilla Sacromonte at his SLS “meathouse.” He didn’t put the dish—a rustic, Spanish-style omelet topped with kidneys, sweetbreads and bone marrow— on the menu for you.
“This is the kind of thing I put on the menu for myself and my buddies,” he says.
Which is precisely the reason you should order it. With a soft egg on top, sweet caramelized onions, and perfectly cooked offal, the dish is a rich, decadent nod to the Gypsy neighborhood of Sacromonte, in Granada, and an entry-level introduction to offal that manages to make all the scary bits gloriously meaty and delicious.
Andrés loves the dish so much, he even featured it on the NBC show Hannibal, for which he served as culinary consultant.
