Recommended by a local, visited by locals only: Restaurant Membibre (10. February 2019)

The Membibre was recommended to me by a local – and it was a great recommendation. The key is to book a table in advance – the place was absolutely crowded and whenever a table would empty, it would be filled again within minutes. Once you’re seated – and even before you’ve placed your order […]

Quite touristic yet with great dishes: Restaurant Taberna Mas Al Sur (9. February 2019)

Quite touristic yet with great dishes: Restaurant Taberna Mas Al Sur (9. February 2019)

Apparently, the Taberna Mas al Sur has a big brother called ‘Taberna al Sur’ – quite a funny choice of names if you ask me but it didn’t keep us from going there. The place is not that huge but it somehow doesn’t matter as the waiter compensates for all the non-comfort with his care […]

Always worth a visit when you’re in Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (8. February 2019)

Always worth a visit when you’re in Madrid: El Mercado de San Miguel (8. February 2019)

Somehow I end up in the El Mercado de San Miguel every time I visit Madrid – and the reason why is easy! The place is just so lively, so full of joy and ultimately also full of tasty places with tremendous food. Of course, as every time, I had to go for a plate […]

Amazing atmosphere and great seafood: Restaurant Glass Mar by Ángel León (12. May 2018)

I walked by the Restaurant Glass Mar by Ángel León a couple of times before I finally decided to go in. And it was generally a good idea although the very first course didn’t persuade me. The “mollete de atún (dos Bocados)” (EUR 5.50 each) was a bit of a disappointment really as it the […]

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

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 […]
