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...

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.

Modesto, pero auténtico

me gusta

La fachada engaña: parece un bar de viejos o un restaurante cutre de menú del día.
En realidad, cutre sí lo es un poco: interior oscuro y triste, mobiliario barato y dispar, dimensiones reducidas. Pero la comida es bastante buena; de lo más parecido que yo he probado en Madrid a lo que te servirían en Japón. Al menos la anciana encargada/dueña es indudablemente japonesa... aunque ha adoptado unas maneras bruscas e invasivas (nos "sugirió" platos insistentemente, nos metió prisa y casi no hacía caso de nuestra comanda).
Barra de sushi (que tengo que probar la próxima vez). Buen pescado y buena sopa.
