Spanish omelette

It is no secret that the potato omelette is a divisive issue in Spain. Supporters of the onion omelette argue that it adds extra flavour and a different texture, as well as being a long-established tradition in many regions of Spain.

On the other hand, advocates of the omelette without onion insist that the pure flavour of the potato and egg should predominate.

At Tragabuches, we love to challenge the most ”great cookers” with this iconic Tragabuches recipe. We encourage everyone to try both styles and share their experiences and results with us.

Cooking is a subjective and personal art, and we are excited to see how everyone interprets and enjoys this classic Spanish recipe in their own way.

For those who love truffles, Tragabuches has put an exquisite twist on this theme with its truffled onion potato omelette, combining the best of both worlds: Spanish tradition with a touch of sophistication.

In the meantime, we invite you to join us at the Tragabuches bar, where the most authentic tapas of Andalusia await you for a unique dining experience.
