The terrace of La Buga de Lobo is much like the others along Calle de Argumosa. It’s nice to sit out on a summer afternoon but nothing unique. Inside is another story. It’s a large bar covered in beautiful murals in a style somewhere between Latin tribal and graffiti. La Buga de Lobo also has local artwork for sale and other cultural events such as films, concerts and even a market for independent designers.
This is the kind of bar that epitomises the multicultural reputation of Lavapiés. The food is a mix of flavours from traditional madrileño to Caribbean and oriental influences. For example the eggs run the gauntlet from the traditional huevos rotos (a pair of fried eggs on top of chips) to the exotic huevos caribeños (literally Caribbean eggs).
