Bistro Podenco is located in Clausen, a district in the lower part of the city. From the terrace, you will see an old bridge called Viaduc de Pfaffenthal, and on the other hand of the Alzette river, you can see the city youth hostel, where you can have a very nice and affordable overnight stay (alone, with friends or family). The reason I wanted to share this place with you is not only because the tapas are delicious, homemade and the taste and atmosphere make you feel like if you are in a real authentic small tapas bar in Spain, but also because of the location of the Podenco Bar. From here you can literally dive into the history of “Lucilinburhuc”, Luxembourg city. A small path with a lot of stairs brings you to the Museum Dräi Eechelen, The Mudam (Museum of modern art- which in fact is a museum of contemporary art) and the Philarmonie. When you walk up the hill on the other side of the river, you will discover Luxembourg city’s Casemates (underground tunnels once used as bomb shelters).
But first, you have to try the delicious tortilla, the Galician octopus, the semi-cooked red tuna in onion sauce & truffle and the Iberian ham croquettes together with one of the best sangria I ever had (they even have sangria based on white wine or sparkling wine for those who don’t like red wine). After that, you will have a good reason to climb up those hundreds of stairs.
