Wonderful gastronomic experience

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Lunch for four people:

• Two large bottles of water
• Three glasses of white wine
• Four large pieces of warm, freshly-baked bread
• A course of 6 × 2 dishes, to share (see photos)
• Two desserts to share (see photos)
• Four coffees

Total: ~€130, taxes included (ie, ~€32.50 pp).

Charming place, very well staffed.

Try to get seated in the back, at the long marble table that can accomodate eight people (you'll share it with strangers; that's fine); because then you'll be surrounded by the kitchens, worktops, ovens, and cooks and waiters will be swarming around you, in quick but quiet efficiency.

Trust your waiter: let him surprise you with an impromptu course of different dishes to share. I was initially a bit reluctant to be served like that, but the experience was definitely worth it. We tasted quite a few original dishes, then some desserts (see the photos), and the bill was perfectly reasonable -- more so considering the attentive service, and the long time we spent at the table.

Definitely recommended.

Charming, always hectic

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Great for: vermouth, assorted croquettes, Spanish omelette and artichokes.

Beautiful atmosphere, but usually packed with patrons mostly standing around tall tables. Simple but delicious "raciones", and vermouth.

Great Japanese restaurant

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Dinner for two at the sushi bar (where it's 40% off in some of the sushi dishes): a bottle of water, a cup of green tea, a bowl of miso soup, tuna tartare, a bit of beef shabu-shabu, assorted sushi (10 nigiri and 8 maki) and three extra pieces of sushi. (The discount applied to all the sushi we ordered). Total: ~€54.

Pleasant atmosphere (the place is spacious, but not noisy), roomy sushi bar, nice staff. All sushi was fresh and tasty. Ditto about the miso soup, and the shabu-shabu (which the itamae kindly offered to us as an offer: €2 per person). Perhaps the "worst" item was the tuna tartare: it was not bad, really; just okay, compared with the rest (it lacked some vinegar, to my taste).

It's a great sushi place in Madrid, with reasonable prices. I heard at least the itamae and one of the women attending tables and the sushi bar speaking Japanese; I guess they *are* Japanese. That is something, given how many "Japanese" restaurants in Spain are staffed entirely by Chinese, Thai, etc., and offer a subpar and strange mixture of Asian dishes...

Authentic caffè with plenty of History

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Historic Italian joint. Read about it on the internet (or, once there, on the brochure/menu).

Authentic coffee; a relief considering the massive, watery coffe that is ubiquitous in Manhattan!

Tiny tables. Usually crammed, but not too loud (mostly people studying or reading, couples chatting)

Pleasant environment, tasty American food

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Good American food (hamburgers, sandwiches, etc) and an oyster bar. TVs show sport events.

If the weather is nice, ask to get seated outside: there is no traffic (it's a pedestrian square right by the river), and the views are to the Hudson, New Jersey and (in the horizon), the Statue of Liberty.

De los mejores pintxos que he probado

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Probamos varios pintxos espectaculares. Entre ellos, el de huevo frito (se toma de un bocado, la yema "explota" en la boca junto con el resto de ingredientes; delicioso y sorprendente).

Well-deserved reputation

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Dining at Kabuki is a very pleasant experience: the space is simple and comfortable, and the staff is attentive without being intrusive. We had the best of Japanese food, with ingredients of high quality, plus the surprising touches of Mediterranean that have merited Kabuki it's well-deserved Michelin star.

Probably the best dish we had was the assorted cuts of toro (tuna): 4×4 impeccable slices of delicious tuna in varying degrees of fat. Nothing else. As tasty as simple.

Second could be the o-nigiri of quail eggs with truffle: an unsuspected mix that, all things said, has little to do with the Japanese tradition. Closer in flavour to a Spanish dish, with the warm, white rice and the tiny eggs. Extremely good, nonetheless: all three warm ingredients melted in our mouths at once; it was exquisite.

See the photos attached for details about our dinner.

We had all that you see on the photos, plus cold soba noodles as an appetiser, three beers (two Alhambra, one Asahi) and water. Total: €135. We were two people.

PS: don't ask for the "trilogía de nigiris" — it's not on the menu, that dish does not exist. It seems it used to be an internal name, which got popular somehow; but they're visibly tired of explaining that to everybody who asks. If you want to have exactly that, ask for these three o-nigiri: quail eggs with truffle, wagyū burgers and butter fish with truffle — which is what the "trilogía" used to be.

Unpretentious place, excellent ramen

tripu lo descubrió en mayo de 2017

me encanta, uno de mis favoritos

Tiny joint in Sangen-jaya, Setagaya; nothing remarkable about it from the outside. The inside is just a very narrow corridor with a bar on one side and eight stools very close to each other. Managed by one guy alone, who cooks rāmen in front of customers. Mostly "salarymen" having dinner alone, sometimes a couple, or two students. Nothing fancy, patrons enter and leave quickly; it would be weird to order a second round of drinks and stay for more than is necessary to slurp your rāmen.

Delicious rāmen in a few varieties: white, with broth, with tomato. The latter are my favourite. Perfect consistency, delicious pork, very tasty sauce. The cook is a young bloke, kind but discrete.

Buy the ticket from the vending machine right after the entrance, and hand it to the cook/waiter. If you are very hungry, order a large one; otherwise a regular size will do. Served with a complimentary little bowl of soup.

After a year and a half visiting the place, its opening hours are still a mystery to me. Better to call beforehand (especially since there's nothing touristy in the area, and it's unlikely you'll find yourself wandering around this part of Sangen-jaya, if not to have dinner here; Shibuya isn't too far by bus/underground, though).
