To taste the best potato omelet in Spain, you must visit Logroño or Betanzos (La Coruña). However, the trip is worth it. Restaurants Tizona (Logroño) and Mesón O Pote in Betanzos won the XV Spanish Omelette Championship, held as part of the Alicante Gastronomic Festival.

The Tizona recipe requires five free-range eggs, seven yolks, potatoes, onions and extra virgin oil. There was a lot of research behind this seemingly simple dish for six months "in terms of ingredients and oil temperature," the restaurant's chef, Carlos Olabuenaga, admitted after the winner was announced.

Sour potatoes and free-range eggs are the ingredients of Mesón O Pote's famous omelet. The potatoes are fried at 160 degrees until golden in color. One of the secrets to a delicious potato omelet from Chef Alberto Garcia Ponte is that the potatoes must cool down well.

Both chefs, though they prepare more than a thousand dishes in different styles, agree on one thing: Their perfect omelet has yet to be made, and they will continue to work on it.
