It’s a place to enjoy tasty food, strong flavors, recipes with personality.

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Viridiana (besides a Luis Buñuel movie) is a signature restaurant owned by Abraham García, one of the top Spanish chefs. It’s a classic, more than 30 years offerings his personal cuisine, and you can still find him almost everyday at Viridiana, cooking and chatting with the clients, suggesting the out-of-the-menu daily dishes, making the experience of eating at Viridiana more special, he is quite a character. It’s a place to enjoy tasty food, strong flavors, recipes with personality.

It’s an expensive restaurant, but the quality if the ingredients its really outstanding. Selected products, traditional recipes but with a personal fusion touch that makes the difference. It has 2 floors, I prefer upstairs, is more quiet, and the decoration is less traditional than downstairs, as it is a former cellar.

Try not to order too much as the food is strong, and they always serve some on-the-house appetizers.If you have never been before you have to try the Egg with Boletus and truffle mousse.

The cellar is superb, you can find really espectacular wines here, be careful with the price! :)

You’ll pay around 75€ per person, but it depends a lot on what you order. It worth a visit, at least, once in you life!

You should book before you go.

Spanish and Japanese flavors

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Oribu means olive in Japanese, it describe perfectly what this gastrobar is: a perfect mix between Spanish and Japanese flavors. There are 3 lounges, the entrance with tall tables and stools for having something to eat from 4pm to 9pm, upstairs, with only 5 small tables, and the biggest lounge downstairs.

The mix is amazing, the Gyozas made with “Cocido” (typical Madrid broth made with meat, vegetables and chickpeas) are really good, the dough is thin, the stuffing is melty, and they serve it with fresh mint, coriander and soup, addictive!

Another must is the Spanish omelette, it is fried in tempura, very light.

Sushi is spectacular, “Boquerón” (anchovy) Hosomaki is amazing, and the dressing with the tuna and salmon nigiris crazy suitable.

For dessert they have also good choices, order the Pannacotta with violet ice cream, delicious.

For lunch they have a menu for a great price: 10,50€, for dinner it’d be around 30€ each.

Umami bomb

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Nakeima really offers a remarkable food experience, they call themselves a freestyle Asian food restaurant, and it’s true, I’d also say it’s a casual bar that serve high level gourmet Asian tapas in an absolutely Madrid’s style, even though, at the same time it reminds me to the David Chang kind of place. They serve Madrid’s umami.

The first thing, and most difficult, is to get a place in the bar, you have to wait in line until half an hour before they open (that is 2pm for lunch and 9pm for dinner) when someone come to pointing you in the list, I recommend arriving 1 hour before and wait at the door, trust me, it’s worthy. 20 people each shift, not only because of the available space, also because of their way, ingredients bought for the day, no waste.

At 2pm and 9pm Nakeima opens and you sit on a stool, then a really friendly staff tell you what they have today on the menu, everyday different. There are like 15 or 20 tapas to chose from, maybe you can have them all, everything is absolutely delicious. The staff is also a highlight, they explain passionately everything you need to know about the ingredientes and the cooking.

We have an amazing, fun and high quality dinner for 35€ each. I’m in love with this guys.

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.

Love at first visit

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Three chefs in the kitchen, three sections on the menu, three rooms in the restaurant, and three sizes of servings. Love at first visit. The food served at El Triciclo deserves not three but five stars. Local fresh market cuisine in this amazing restaurant, direct to my favs. Simple rustic design which lacks the flavor that comes with age that certainly will fulfill.

So, three rooms: the bar, where you can have a wine without booking a table if you couldn’t get one or if you are passing by, a space for groups around an old carpenter’s table, and the main room.

Three different sections on the menu, and while you decide you can enjoy a glass of wine and the complimentary starter as the one we had: Potatoes with mojo sauce, the tubercle was still warm and at its point and the sauce delicious.

We ordered half rations to share between two so we could try more dishes on the menu. First section: Del mercado al TriCiclo (focused on the quality and freshness of the product), as Calçots (spring onions) grilled with romesco sauce.

Second section: Un paseo en TriCiclo (traditional but elaborated dishes) and the third section: Un viaje en TriCiclo (dishes with surprising mixed flavors) as the Steak tartar with egg and roes.

But here the trio becomes a quartet because the philosophy of the restaurant is to have a non-fixed menu, with seasonal products that they find at the market. So we ordered also: Bushmeat balls (surprising, melty, I wish they could be on the permanent menu), Crispy sweetbreads with vegetables, and Scrambled eggs with mushrooms.

For dessert strawberries and blood oranges with basil ice cream and mint.

All of these amazing half dishes plus 4 glasses of red wine for less than 70€, I’m now one of their new fans.

Reservation required, you can do it online (plan ahead).

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.

Galician nice corner in Madrid

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Vilalua is a “pulpería”, a traditional Galician restaurant specialized in octopus, “a la gallega”, it means boiled with paprika and cachelos (boiled potatoes), its inseparable side dish. Pulpo is Vilalúas core, cooked just its fair time, brought from Galicia everyday.

The menu is very very short, but you also can (and must) order other typical dishes as: Empanada (meat or seafood pie) or Carne richada (meatloaf), every recipe and ingredient is from Galicia, even the burger, they call it “Galiburger”, its made with Galician beef, Galician bread and Arzua cheese, really delicious, first class ingredients, indescribable.

They will offer you seafood of the day, last time they had Mussels, Galicia style cooked, boiled, fresh and tasty.

We usually go there to have some pulpo and white wine, Galician too, Albariño, a jug to share and several cuncas (the typical Galician glass for the wine).

I love to finish dinner with some Galician cheese with quince.

The place is not very big, has a bar, two or three high tables with stools and two large communal tables to share. The decor is beautiful, all wood, modern but cozy. There are two places in Madrid, and one in País Vasco. It’s no necessary to make a reservation.

You can have a great dinner for 20€.

Summer must

me gusta

Everyone who comes to Madrid goes to visit Círculo de Bellas Artes, and most of them go up to the roof to admire the beautiful views of Madrid. Someone realized that it was a great spot to spend a great time, so they opened a restaurant. Tartan roof is the spring/summer name, Tartan lodge the autumn/winter one.

To go up to the roof you have to pay 3€, unless you have a reservation at the restaurant, what is, unless until today, a very difficult task, almost impossible but needed: 672 557 171

Views are really amazing, and food is incredibly good. The summer restaurant is open air, but they have blankets in case you are cold.

Almost all the menu is easy to share, so is great for groups. We were 6 friends, so we order 9 small dishes and 3 desserts. Croquettes, Ensaladilla rusa with avocado, Coca with stilton, figs, and gorgonzola, Shrimps (great flavour!), Tartar duo (the tuna one better than the salmon one), Rice with ginger and egg, Chukasoba with pork ribs, Fried Apple pie, Ice cream with brownie and Chocolate in two temperatures, surprising!!

They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner (at 9pm and 11pm), and you can have a drink later in the bar.

Including the wine, beer and water we paid 30€ each.
