Don’t complain, don’t ask for the bathroom, and definitely don’t ask for salt. On the river Ramos, two sisters - who didn’t ask for your opinion - have taken a shack that serves one dish, traditional cortadillo stew, and made it into a must-visit restaurant. Just watch out for their parrot, he bites.
