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.

Mexican food as a fine delicatessen

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Punto MX makes you change your mind about the Mexican cuisine as you understood it. It’s the only restaurant I know that conceives Mexican food as a fine delicatessen, traditional and contemporary at the same time, amazing tasty ingredients for typical Mexican recipes combining traditional and cutting edge techniques. Maybe de “MX” stands for “mix” instead for “mex”.

While deciding what to eat I always order a La Virgen beer, a Madrid’s craft beer, with the complimentary starter.

The best opening is the Guacamole cart, I love it, the waiter come to your table and mix the delicious ingredients in front of you in the molcajete.

The plates usually have 2 portions to share, we started with Sopes with spicy (enchipotlados) shrimps and avocado.

Then Panuchos of cochinita pibil (pork). X’nipek with red onion and habanero chili.

My favorite, Tacos of green chorizo, San Simón cheese. Martajada sauce with toreado chiles (roasted jalapeño chiles).

Also Tacos of Galician octopus carnitas and chiles tatemados sauce.

This time they had Tamales, with huitlacoche mushrooms and it was crazy delicious! One portion is enough to share (also because we ordered too many other plates this night):

Although we had no room left we ordered a delicious dessert, Chocolate cake.

We paid 50€ each, and even though it’s not a budget price it’s one of the most difficult tables to book in Madrid, it can take months if you do it online (it’s easier to have lunch than dinner), or you have 2 options:
- call them on Mondays (there are some reserved tables that are released each Monday for the week): 91 402 2226 (from 12am to 10pm)
- go to the bar upstairs where you can (luckily) sit and enjoy their cocktails and Mexican tapas.

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.

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.

A must of the Madrid nights

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Caripen is a classic, it’s a must of the Madrid nights besides it’s a typical french bistró. The place was the former Lola Flores tablao flamenco, and it still keep the party atmosphere, now and then you can find here celebrities having dinner. It’s a place to celebrate, intimate but not quiet, fun, romantic, intense. Open until very late, you can enjoy fabulous food until 2am.

As a good classic has its classics (a must): Rock mussels (with cream) and Magret de canard (minimum 2).

But there are lots of great other dishes in the menu and beyond the menu as rillettes, escargots bourgignon, pizza or pasta.

My favorite dessert is Negro en camisón, a dark chocolate pie with cream and orange.

The wine list is not to long, a bit expensive also.

We paid 50€/each.
Reservation needed at least a day before.

Noodles: quick, energetic and cheap lunch

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

UDON is an Spanish chain specialized in noodles, you can choose from udon, soba or soups, they also have rice and side dishes. In every branch you’ll find a large shared table, Wagamama style, that I love. You can have a quick, energetic and cheap lunch (or dinner, but I prefer lunch) in many places over Madrid, even at the airport! they have opened its first restaurant in the T1 airport terminal Madrid, I haven’t gone yet, but it’ll be my first choice next time in Barajas.

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.

Superb small plates

me gusta

La Maruca is a nice beach at Santander, but also a superb restaurant in Madrid, Velázquez street. The owner also opened Cañadío a couple of years ago, but this new restaurant is more casual and cheaper. Traditional Spanish tapas and small plates (not so small!) but absolutely great ingredients you can notice in every plate. If he continues down this path I foresee many more openings!!

The menu includes, salads and cold starters, we ordered Ensaladilla rusa, really tasty.

Also hot starters, we had the Cod brandade fritters, great, soft and delicate.

Eggs too, so we ordered the one with truffle, surprising.

We didn’t have anything from the Rice, soups, pasta and vegetables section. But we had one plate of fish (amazing Octopus with pumpkin pureé) and one meat plate, the Meatballs, Spanish traditional way.

For dessert we chose two (we were four people sharing), the Cheese flan, wow, and the Lemon pie, wow, wow.

We paid 25€ each with a bottle of wine and a bottle of water.

Reservation needed, is always crowed, a little bit noisy but you can have a conversation, you feel very comfortable with the attention provided, very nice, good rhythm.

The croquettes heaven

me gusta

Croquettes-mania! OMG! What a discovery! La Gastrocroquetería de Chema is the croquettes heaven, you may think croquettes are fine, but just that, you’ll change your mind in this lovely restaurant in Barco street in Madrid. They take the croquette as a category, not just a dish, they show with their recipes a lot of creativity and mastery.

We had Tex Mex croquettes (each tapa includes 2 units, but you can order more), made with guacamole, chicken and jalapeños, you could taste all these flavors. Then Duck and Foie Croquettes (my favorites), Sobrassada and chocolate and Liquid Cheese croquettes on Tomato confit and black olives (I’ve change my mind, these are my favorites).

In order to try other tapas besides croquettes we had this amazing Migas with curry and grapes, and a Shabu shabu of butterfish.

They have also sweet croquettes, so we ordered one of each: cheesecake, chocolate, tiramisu and oreo biscuits, I think the chocolate one and the cheesecake one are the best.

We paid 20€ each with a bottle of wine, so the price it’s as amazing as the croquettes! They also have fixed menus, and Sunday specials, I’m looking forward to try them.

Reservation required.
