a quality izakaya has opened in Madrid

me gusta

Madrid has a lot of Japanese restaurants, but almost all of them are sushi restaurants, that is why Hattori Hanzo is great news, a quality izakaya has opened in Madrid. Izakayas are the Japanese tapas bars, where you can go to have a beer and something light and casual to eat.

The place remembers me a place in Tokyo, Gonpachi, where the famous fight scene of Kill Bill was filmed. It’s quite big, it has a long bar, some tables at the entrance and a summer terrace yatai style, and the most popular area, at the back, where you can eat on the floor, but with space for your legs down the tables. It’s big but you’ll have to book it in advance, it’s quite crowed, specially for dinner.

So, as it is a tavern, you have to order some beers, they have Japanese draft beer (Kirin), the best, in my opinion. And with the beer some tapas: gyozas here are a essential choice.

Also the Karaage (marinated chicken), really light and tasty.

They have a robata for yakitoris that are one of their specialties, but this time we ordered Okonomiyaki, as it’s very difficult to find in Madrid, this one was as good as in Japan.

If you want something sweet they have some options, we ordered green tea and sesame ice creams, I know, nothing very special, it was really good, but next time we’ll chose the Dorayaki or the Matcha to Azuki Keki.

To sum up, a great place to go with friends to order some beers, gyozas and yakitoris to have a Japanese evening.

Good price, 20€ per person. Closed on Sundays.

Regional dishes of north Italy.

me gusta

Nonsolocaffé shows that things are not always what they seem and that appearances can be misleading. From the outside it seems just like another cafetería to have a good coffee, tea or juice and something light to eat, but it isn’t. It’s one of the best Italian restaurants in Madrid, Nonsolocaffé specializes in regional dishes of north Italy.
There are four lounges: “Il Lounge-Bar” perfect for an Italian breakfast, Spritz, or even a casual dinner; “Il Corridoio”, high tables and stools (is the one I prefer); “Il Salottino”, the main room for lunch and dinner; and from March to October “La Terrazza”.

The food is delicious, everything homemade, we started with Melanzane alla parmigiana, then Tagliatelle mari e monti (tossed with prawns, mushrooms and other forest mushrooms and a touch of tomato) and an out of the menu dish Tagliatelle with artichokes and guanciale. Pannacotta for dessert, with strawberry sirope. They offer a great variety of Italian wines also.

The price is around 25€ each, so it’s a perfect choice if you are in the area!

Traditional Spanish food in an up-to-date and easy way

me gusta

Traditional Spanish food in an up-to-date and easy way, good market products and an excellent wine cellar, that’s what you’ll find here in Taberna Arzábal. Opposite Retiro Park, they have 2 restaurants and a private club I have yet to go.

As they bring you your drinks (they have great wines by glass, I love Pétalos del Bierzo) they also bring you some bread and a bucket (yeah) of homemade butter, delicious, you can’s stop!

It’s a fantastic place to have a casual lunch or dinner, if you decide it on the fly you can get some place at the bar. Wine for 2 people, 2 starters, 2 main dishes, dessert and coffee will be about 35€ each.

This is so Madrid!

me gusta

This is so Madrid! Taberna La Dolores. A facade with painted tiles, dark wood shelves filled with bottles, blackboards with recommended tapas and montados, a bar area full of groups of friends standing, a table area with a sign that reads “Dining only”. This emblematic tavern is famous for their great cañas (small glasses of draught beer) and boquerones en vinagre, and was opened in 1.908.

Great place to whet your appetite before lunch or dinner, stand at the bar and order a caña, they’ll also serve you a typical tapa to have with it, or if you prefer you can sit down and order some Boquerones en vinagre or Anchovies, typically with some olives and chips, or Berberechos (cockles).

It’s a classic place for foreigners and locals where you can go to taste some castizo atmosphere in Huertas neighborhood but knowing for sure you are having great quality tapas and cañas.

Wonderful place to meet with friends

me gusta

Dray Martina is a wonderful place to meet with friends. The deco is a big part of the experience, made by Madrid in love, white furniture, cactus and huge windows that allow street light enters the room.

The food is the perfect match for a vibrant conversation. Mediterranean, simple, tasty and easy to share plates, as the Grilled octopus with avocado brunoise (not good enough for my lovely Galician companion), Croquetas made of cecina, pear and spinach, Duck magret with pumpkin or the Hamburger. We also share a dessert, Chocolate mousse.

I liked Dry Martina most for the space and the atmosphere they offer, so you can choose either breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner to go there and spend a good time with your friends.
Open Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 2:00, Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 2:30. Booking is required.

Great tacos

lasmesasdevanessa lo descubrió en febrero de 2014

me gusta

Remarkable this taqueria at Salamanca neighborhood, I love Mexican food, especially tacos, and La Lupita does the job. Some starters and amazing tacos, all you have to worry about is deciding the filling, everything fresh, non-oily, great price and fast served, ideal for weekdays lunch.

We always start with guacamole and totopos, and then some tacos: pastor, gringa (pastor & cheese) and cochinita pibil (2 each order).

Tacos & Chelas, ideal match, so try one of their micheladas (beer with fresh lime juice in a frosty mug with salt).

Great casual place to meet with friends for a fun night eating and drinking, 20€-30€ each.

It’s better to book in advance. Opened everyday from 1pm until past midnight.

It’s the place to eat rice

me gusta

Rice Bar La bomba, best place in Madrid to eat different Spanish traditional rice dishes, and even a Korean rice named Bulgogi, great for dinners. If you are in town with foreign friends, it’s the place to take them, although it’s not the typical Spanish traditional place they’ll expect, the decoration is clearly Mediterreanean .

There are no many starters to choose from, but there are all spectacular, my favorites: Butifarra, Ensaladilla and Croquetas, you can order to share if you ask for Trilogía La Bomba. They also have La Virgen craft beer from Madrid, for a great start.

When it comes to rices I always choose the simplest one, as Arroz A Banda, but at Rice Bar La bomba I change my habits: for lunch I will go with Arroz Berlanga (peaks, chorizo… strong taste, delicious, José Luis García Berlanga’s recipe), and for dinner, something lighter, the Bulgogi Rice, a great Korean rice, that you have to wrap in a lettuce leave, with beef, ginger, garlic.

The dessert is a must, there are all of them great, but Paulova is the king. And for a really grand finale pair it with a MR wine (Moscatel).

Christophe, one of the owners, has also a great blog in which he writes about recipes and restaurants.

Make a reservation.

Mondays to Wednesday is closed at dinner.

Good, pretty and cheap

me gusta

Are you looking for a pretty, casual, good price, mediterranean but asian influenced restaurant in Chueca for lunch? Bazaar is perfect! I’d rather lunch than dinner because of the great light Bazaar has due to these huge windows and the white decor. Weekdays they have a fixed menu for 10,50€, but choosing the regular menu you can have lunch for 15€.

Pasta, rice, fish or meat, long Mediterranean menu with an asian twist. I always order the same: Prawn Carpaccio, or Bresaola Carpaccio, they served it with pesto sauce and some bread.

Duck confit with hummus or Chicken curry with sotanghon noddles.

For dessert Biscuit glacé with burnt jijona (it’s a traditional xmas Spanish sweet, turrón)

The food is good, and the price is better, in Spanish we say “Bueno, bonito y barato” (Good, pretty and cheap). Reservations are not allowed.

If you like it you can give a try to the other restaurants they have in the same group, Andilana, but Bazaar is my favorite in Madrid.

Gourmet pizzería

me gusta

Did you know that a Spanish chef has been the World Pizza Champion four times? he is Jesús Marquina, and he has designed and tested the pizza served at Kilómetros de pizza in Madrid, a gourmet pizzería around Bernabeu area where pizzaolos has been Marquina’s students.

They use special flour imported directly from Italy, dough is made and fermented at the restaurant kitchen, and baked in a Castelli oven, the best of the best. Is lighter and digestive and follows the guidelines of the Roman recipe. But the hit of the pizzeria is that you can order the pizza by meters! the biggest is 2 meters long, if you dare.

The quality is good for the price, the place is nice, decorated Mediterranean style, large tables, great for meeting there with a group of friends (even with children) for a casual dinner.

We ordered some starters too, as they were signed by another known chef, Juanjo López Bedmar. Great ingredients, Fresh burrata, and Mortadela with parmesan.

We were 5 and we order too much. They have 4 sizes to choose: Paso (28 x 28 cm), Half meter, One meter and Two meters. In theory, a Paso is an individual portion, Half a meter is good to share between two, and so on, but in my opinion is too much, maybe I’ll recommend Half a meter for every three.

We had Bresaola and rocket, Mushrooms and pumpkin cream, Barbecue and Diabola.

For dessert we order a Tiramisu and a Chocolate coulant.

The price, 25€ each. But as I said, it was too much food, so we took the leftovers.

We booked online, it’s better if you do, just in case.

Michelin starred restaurant

me gusta

Japanese ikebana at the reception, a large bar and two heights for the tables, nicely decorated but space is not the only highlight, Kabuki Wellington is food oriented.

The menu is a bit long, so you’ll need some time to think what are you going to have, or you can prepare your visit taking a look to the menu in advance on the website (there are some special dishes on the web you can order at the restaurant even though there aren’t on the menu), or be advised by the maitre. You can have traditional Japanese food but but its strength is the fusion, mixing elegantly Spanish and Japanese dishes, as Pan Tumaca Toro Usuzukuri.
They’re obsessed with the best fish, proof of that is the Tuna tartar with ponzu, it melts in your mouth, rich of flavors, no fat at all, delicious.

One of these hidden dishes you can order is Trilogía Kabuki, with 3 of their best choices: Quail egg with truffle nigiri, Wagyu burger with tomato and caramelized onion and Butter fish with chives and truffle egg.
Not only the fish is outstanding, we order carpaccio, the meat was really soft and tasty, after this you can’t go back to the meat you’re used to!
I think I had a crush on Ricardo Sanz at that point. Oriol Balaguer is in charge of the desserts, we ordered Yufu jelly with strawberries and pumpkin seeds, oh my goodness!

It is a bit pricey, we were two, we had a glass of white wine of their amazing cellar and sparkling water, we ordered two Trilogías and a blue tea and the bill was of 160€, but really, really worthy. Thanks to my hostess to for joining me on my first visit that will be unforgettable.
