Amazing dishes worth the 45+ minutes queue: Restaurant StreetXO (12. May 2018)

As the place I originally wanted to go, Boton y Fogon de Sacha, was fully booked, I checked my list of recommendations and the StreetXO was somehow on the top of it. It is the second restaurant of a Michelin starred chef with three Michelin stars. The difference is though that you can’t book a […]

Lovely breakfast buffet with some waiters having an attitude: Restaurant La Rotonda @ The Westin Palace Madrid (12. May 2018)

Lovely breakfast buffet with some waiters having an attitude: Restaurant La Rotonda @ The Westin Palace Madrid (12. May 2018)

The breakfast selection at the La Rotonda is absolutely good. The only element which isn’t is the fact that it is absolutely packed. All the tables – and there are quite a few – seem to be full at all times which is good for the hotel but it isn’t so much for the customers […]

Lovely place to relax close to the touristic epicenter: Restaurant Amicis (11. May 2018)

Lovely place to relax close to the touristic epicenter: Restaurant Amicis (11. May 2018)

The Restaurant Amicis is located perfectly close to the Mercado de San Miguel but as it is around the corner, it isn’t as touristic as the other places. It is perfectly organized though, as a table remains empty for approximately 30 seconds before the lady in charge assigns the next customer to it. Truly remarkable […]

A true gem – not to be confused with its neighboring copy: Restaurant TriCiclo (11. May 2018)

A true gem – not to be confused with its neighboring copy: Restaurant TriCiclo (11. May 2018)

I found the TriCiclo through the book “Where Chefs Eat” and it turns out to be more and more my favourite book to travel. You find these local gems which you frankly wouldn’t find if it wasn’t for that book/app. But don’t be misled, there is another restaurant close to the TriCiclo which has almost […]

Decent breakfast selection right by a main street: Restaurant faborit fresh bar (11. May 2018)

Decent breakfast selection right by a main street: Restaurant faborit fresh bar (11. May 2018)

Due to the fact that the hotel had originally communicated the breakfast times wrongly, I ended up getting breakfast in the Restaurant faborit fresh bar which is right across the street of The Westin Palace. And while at first I was a bit surprised about the location, it turns out the dishes – once you’re […]

Great drink based on a local candy: Bar Museo 1912 @ The Westin Palace (10. May 2018)

Great drink based on a local candy: Bar Museo 1912 @ The Westin Palace (10. May 2018)

Apparently, “La Violeta” is a world-famous candy in Madrid which – as the name already suggests – is violet. I haven’t tried the candy but coincidentally I’ve been talking about it before entering the bar, so I couldn’t help it but actually try the drink called “La Violetera (inspired in the traditional Madrid violet candies […]

An absolute must when you visit Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (10. May 2018)

Every time I am coming to Madrid, I just have to pay the El Mercado de San Miguel a visit as it is one of these places you just want to go back to. They have so many lovely foods and you just want to try them all. Starting with the “fried sardines” (EUR 15.00) […]

Decent lunch buffet in a take away place: Restaurant Neuhaus (9. May 2018)

Decent lunch buffet in a take away place: Restaurant Neuhaus (9. May 2018)

When I first saw the place, I was super surprised and not necessarily in a positive way as it looked like a pure take-away joint. Turns out, that it is actually a proper restaurant with a very decent lunch buffet selection for CHF 22.90. Starting with a nice variety of ‘salad’ … … a couple […]
