Eating good Asian food in Madrid can be done. Despite the huge increase of Japanese restaurants, in this brief article we will focus just on Chinese food, not on Vietnamese or Thai.
Let’s start this route at a restaurant that used to gather all the spirit of the most authentic side of China. It was endorsed by the fame that Chinese people ate (and still do) there, which is always a point in their favour. After a renovation, it has endured a facelift and it has lost its previous charismatic aspect of yesteryear, but it is still well worth a visit. Menus in Chinese and delicious dishes like the noodle soup (with vegetables, seafood, meat) will take your breath away, not least because of their low prices.

The name does not come from the president of an important Spanish bank; this restaurant boasts, and rightfully so since it is certified with a Guinness plaque (the records one, not the beers), of being the oldest in the world.

In any case, it is the oldest in Spain, opening its doors in 1725 during the reign of King Felipe V, the first king of the House of Bourbon in Spain. It rivals with Can Culleretes in barcelona, a restaurant that has offered Catalan gastronomic specialities since 1786. read full article
