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.

Peruvian restaurant, informal, always open

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Tanta is a quality, Peruvian restaurant, informal, always open (from 13:30h-16h and from 20:30h-00h), big enough to find a table even a Friday night. Thee food is awesome, tasty, colorful, fresh and delicious.

I love the typical Papa bread that you get when you sit down.

They have a large selection of cebiches, last time we shared a Cebiche clásico (ceviche made with croaker a and tiger’s milk, the Peruvian term for the citrus-based marinade that cures the seafood). And also some Wantanes (pork and shrimp with tamarind sauce).

Main courses are amazing, I never know what to choose, my favorites maybe are: Lomo saltado (beef tenderloin, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, peppers and rice, wok made), Tallarines Saltados (Wok sauteed noodles with chicken, shrimp, onions, tomatoes and peppers) and Gaston Burger (Beef, lettuce, tomato, house sauce, creole sauce, fries and chimichurri), named for Gastón Acurio, the owner, that also owns Astrid & Gastón, another great Peruvian restaurant in Madrid.

They also have great desserts, I love the Chocolate soufle.

Usually, you can pay around 25€ each, weekdays they serve a lunch menu for 17€.

You can book online.

Excellent quality of the ingredients and innovative recipes done to perfection

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

You are going to enjoy Bacira from the entrance to the table talk. It’s a Mediterranean (with an Asian touch) restaurant, bright and fresh decorated in Chamberi neighborhood.

The secret: excellent quality of the ingredients and innovative recipes done to perfection. The place is so comfortable, the light, the space, you could eat here forever.

They offer a sample menu for 30€, and a daily menu for 14€. If you prefer to choose from the menu you can go for something light and fresh like Ceviche, or a typical Spanish recipe: Egg with bread (migas), potatoes and chorizo (we order half plates to try more dishes).

For main dishes I’ll suggest the Oaxtail meatballs, with mashed potato, it will melt in your mouth! Or you can try the Grilled smoked octopus, incredible soft.
Amazing desserts, so you have to make room for them.

It’s a great place to go with friends, family or your partner, the place will let you have a conversation, and if you go for lunch, the light from the windows will make you feel as good as the amazing food.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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€.
