Sumérgete en la cocina más exótica

ethiopian foodWhile tourists predictably fill up the thousands of terraces around Madrid, here we offer an alternative route, because the indoor charm knows not of seasons or dates. Arabia, in the heart of the Chueca district (Calle Piamonte, 12), presents a Berber decoration and inside you will feel at the gates of the Sahara desert. Its couscous is famous but your best bet is to choose a tasting menu that will set you back just 20 euros per person, wine included.

Ethiopian cuisine is represented in Madrid by restaurants such as Mesob, on Calle Malasaña, 17, offering the best of this African cuisine that is still soft despite being exotic. Its star dish is the traditional huge injera, similar to a pancake, to which they add different vegetables. The charm of Malasaña is one of the favourable factors of this restaurant, since you can then go for a drink in any of the nearby bars, such as the pleasant Café de Ruiz, on the same street. Similar to that is Gomer, on Calle Grafal, 8, in the heart of La Latina, just a few yards away from Cava Baja and its many bars and taverns (Lamiak, on Cava Baja, 42, is one of the liveliest).

On a complete different note and location, we head to Calle Ponzano, another of the city’s liveliest streets with its many classic bars and contemporary cuisine restaurants, such as Sala de Despiece. At number 85 we find La Sudestada, a restaurant conceived as an Asian fusion cuisine restaurant with a Peruvian twist. It has different tasting menus to choose from and dinners can cost up to 50 euros per person. We recommend the red veal curry, one of the most popular dishes among clients.

International exoticism to choose from, from high to low intensity. Enjoy.

Victoria 4 is a hotel in the centre of Madrid that is close to all the important landmarks. It is close to Puerta del Sol and a stone’s throw from the main popular districts and the best culinary offer in the Spanish capital. Come and discover it all and stay with us.
