Flavours of Peru and Japan in the heart of a neighborhood market. Unpretentious, flavourful and enjoyable- that’s what Tripea is. Its name comes from “trip” or “travel”, and that’s the idea behind its food. In the set menu (7-8 courses for ~ 40 Euro) you will find accents from Peru, Thailand or Japan meeting local Spanish products, say empanadillas with tuna and tomato escabeche served with red curry sauce or oysters with the first strawberries of the season and leche de tigre or a bao bun topped with cheese sauce. Plus a nice selection of wines, to enjoy by the glasses or bottles.

Another good follower of the asianleña cuisine style, which was created by pioneers like Alberto Chicote, Ricardo Sanz and taken to new heights by David Muñoz. David Vangoni's most casual place deserves a visit outside the usual gastro routes in the city.

C. de San Bartolomé, 14, Centro, 28004 Madrid, Spain

Kuoco 360 Food is known for its fusion cuisine, offering a diverse menu with dishes inspired by flavors from around the globe. The menu includes unique items such as Peking duck croquette, scallop tartar with passion fruit dressing, and Iberian pork loin with lapsang souchong tea. The meals here are characterized by their contrasting flavors, with acidity being a recurring theme.

Recommended by

If we talk about fusion cuisine, three places come to our minds in Madrid, and Kuoco is one of them. Every bite is an explosion of flavors inspired by food from the whole world. We chose a la carte and ate the following: * Pani-Puri with kefir and smoked sardine. * Peking duck croquette. * Causa croquette with fish, chilli garlic and chalaquita. * Crunchy wonton of pork al pastor, spicy pineapple mojito, lime and coriander. * Oyster with leche de tigre. * Scallop tartar with passion fruit dressing, tomato tsukemono, black quino and shallots. * Steak tartar with gochujang dressing, toasted sesame, mushrooms cracker. * “Presa ibérica” (Iberian pork loin) with lapsang souchong tea, shiitake mole, truffled pico de gallo and crunchy wonton. Overall, a very solid meal, lots of contrasts, and in our opinion the main flavor that was played around with was the acidity.

Sichuan Kitchen

C/ del Maestro Guerrero, 4, Centro, 28015 Madrid, Spain

Sichuan Kitchen stands out among numerous Chinese restaurants for its modernity, spaciousness, and cleanliness, while still delivering delicious food. The menu offers a variety of dishes, such as Spicy Wonton, twice-cooked Pork Belly, Chong Qing Chicken, Yu Xiang Aubergine, and Rice Cake. The Wonton soup, in particular, is a highlight, offering a blend of flavors, spices, and pleasing textures.

Recommended by

My favorite Chinese restaurant in Madrid. Located in an area full of Chinese restaurants, this one is one of the more modern ones, which often is a bad sign, but not in this case, a big restaurant, big tables, clean, and good food. What we ordered on this occasion was: * Spicy Wonton. * Pork belly cooked twice. * Chong Qing chicken. * Yu Xiang aubergine. * Rice cake. Except for the dessert, we really enjoyed all the dishes, especially the Wonton soup. Lots of flavors and spices, and also nice textures overall, definitely not your average Chinese and currently our favorite in town.

This restaurant, Kabuki, offers a unique blend of Japanese and Mediterranean cuisines. Known for its original "Spushi", or Spanish sushi, it presents seafood with a distinct Iberian touch, including fried quail's eggs and juicy Denia prawn head nigiri. The cheesecake mochi is a recommended dessert to end your meal.

Recommended by

The original "Spushi," or Spanish sushi. Think pristine seafood presented with a decidedly Iberian flair, down to perfectly fried quails' eggs and juicy Denia prawn head nigiri. An interesting fusion. The cheesecake mochi is a fabulous ending.

Sushi Bar Hannah 鮨花

C. del Marqués de Villamagna, 1, Salamanca

C. del Marqués de Villamagna, 1, Salamanca, 28001 Madrid, Spain

Focused on offering the freshest seasonal seafood and incorporating fresh herbs and vegetables imported from Japan, Sushi Bar Hannah 鮨花 provides an authentic Japanese culinary experience. The restaurant is known for its individual nigiri servings, tempura dishes, and traditional Japanese grilling techniques. Their menu features a Kaiseki option with carefully balanced dishes, a personalized Sushi Omakase selection, and an a la carte choice, catering to diverse preferences.

Recommended by

Japanese restaurant offering Omakase, Kaiseki and a la carte. This is our second visit to this restaurant, and our impression is that the place definitely has improved over the last couple of months. We usually opt for Nigiri Omakase’s in a place like this, but our impression from the last visit is that we preferred the non-nigiri dishes, so this time we opted for a mix between the nigiri omakase and the kaiseki, and we think this is the best option here. Focusing on what we had, some of our favorites were: * Akami, chu-toro, egg yolk and caviar. * Crab, uni, wasabi flowers and tosazu. * Grilled red mullet and sudachi. * Sea bream belly nigiri. * Iwashi nigiri. * Chu-toro nigiri. * Akami nigiri. * Lobster chawanmushi. * O-toro nigiri. * Suzuki and katsuobushi gohan. We loved the first three appetizers, all delicious, and we really liked the light tempura around the red mullet. A very nice meal and we look forward coming back when we go to Madrid again.

Nanako

C. de Raimundo Lulio

C. de Raimundo Lulio, 24, Chamberí, 28010 Madrid, Spain

Nanako is a unique Japanese restaurant that creatively infuses Latin flavors into its dishes, thanks to its Brazilian owner. The omakase menu, particularly the charred salmon nigiri with burnt onion and the Brazilian style beef robata with farofa, are highly recommended. The ambiance is lively, with seating options near the counter for guests who enjoy watching the culinary action, or at the tall tables in the front part of the restaurant.

Recommended by

A nice surprise in the Chamberí neighborhood Nanako is a Japanese restaurant but it allows itself to play with Latin flavors. Its owner is Brazilian, so expect some of his favorite flavors from home to appear on the menu. The omakase menu (55€) is without a doubt the best option. Try to get a seat near at the counter to see all the action or at any of the tall tables in the front part of the restaurant. Some of the highlights of the menu were the charred salmon nigiri with burnt onion. Or the Brazilian style beef robata with farofa. Loved the tuna tiradito also!

Ebisu by Kobos

Calle de Luciente, 14, Centro

Calle de Luciente, 14, Centro, 28005 Madrid, Spain

Ebisu by Kobos is a sushi restaurant where you can experience the trust relationship between the chef and the diner, known as Omakase. The restaurant is founded by Chef Kobos Cortés, who brings his experience from Japan, where he worked at an Edo-style sushi bar. The restaurant's philosophy is rooted in technique, product, and seasonality, combining Japanese tradition with local seafood to elevate sushi to its highest expression of purity.

This was our second visit here and we keep our personal opinion that this is the best sushi we know of in Spain. Since our last visit, we’ve had some new stuff, and missed some dishes from our last visit, being the most important one, the ankimo, which was one of the stars of our last visit. The shari has in our opinion improved since the last time, and overall we had another fantastic night here, with great nigiris and another great wine pairing. So, some of the favorites of the night were: * Aji & shyoga nigiri (mackerel & ginger). * Tako (octopus). * Chawanmushi with katsuobushi, dashi and eggs. * Sea bream nigiri with hiroshima salt. * Akaza ebi nigiri (scampi). * Kaziki maguro nigiri. * Mama’s sandwich 2.0 with Oscietra Caviar. * Chu toro (semi-fatty tuna) nigiri. * O-toro and uni (fatty tuna and sea urchin) nigiri. * Unagi (fresh water eel)nigiri. The one thing we liked a little better on our last visit was to end with the Futomaki Endo, as a kind of a dessert, but again, we liked every single dish of this visit. And, this remains our favorite unagi on earth! To end this post, our opinion is that the itamae José, will improve more and more on each visit and has the potential to become one of the best sushiyas in Europe over the years, but let the time talk and just observe over the years.

This is a unique Japanese tavern that marries the flavors of Madrid with traditional Japanese cuisine, offering a cozy and modern atmosphere.

Recommended by

Japanese tavern rooted in the flavors of Madrid. Lovely modern and cozy tavern evoking flavors of Japan but going beyond the izakaya offerings by adding flavors from the typical taverns of Madrid. Only Japanese beer is sold, great sake is offered and small tapas are the norm. Amazing katsu sando, calamari sandwich, juicy croquettes and gyozas, as well as fun baos.
