I am from Madrid, love the city and want to share my special addresses. Every day a new idea, place or thing to do in Madrid. Everything has been thoroughly tested but it is only a personal opinion.

MORE AMAZING STREET FOOD IN MADRID: TRIPEA

heaven

I firmly believe that in the city's traditional markets you can find the best gastronomic and most daring offer in the city. That is to say, they may not have ironed linen tablecloths, uniformed waiters, or a neat décor, but clearly their food and their bets take you to seventh heaven, gastronomically speaking of course.

It happened to me a few months ago with Doppelganger in Mercado de Antón Martín and it has happened to me again with Tripea in Mercado de Vallehermoso. A stand where I ate on Sunday and today, Monday, I dream of going back.

Tripea has been open since 2017 in Mercado de Vallehermoso and chef Roberto Martínez Foronda gives you the friendliest of smiles and approaches you with extreme delicacy and professionalism to finish your dishes. With his cap and casual look, he's a bit of a misleading figure, and it was only today when I looked into his CV that I discovered that he is the alma mater of this special gastronomic concept. I discovered that he has been trained with well known chefs such as Dario Barrio, the Roca brothers, Andrés Madrigal and that he has been head chef at one of my favourite restaurants, Nakeima.

At Tripea, the concept is fusion with a Southeast Asia and Peruvian twist. On weekdays a 7-course gastronomic menu designed to share is available for  35 euros without drinks and on Sundays you have a  short menu written in a blackboard that sounds complicated to read but that works wonderfully on the palate. What's more, I still salivate when I remember it... Oysters with a ginger and soy sauce, chicken in dim sum and sea bass tiradito were my choices, but the flavours were truly unique and breathtaking.

I love discovering these places so full of talent! Thanks Tripea, I really enjoyed it!

And it's not only me who says it, as Michelin included it in its guide and Repsol awarded it with a SUN distinction

Creo firmemente que en los mercados tradicionales de la ciudad puedes encontrar la mejor propuesta gastronómica de la ciudad. Es decir, puede que no tengan los manteles de lino planchados, ni jefes de sala, ni una decoración cuidada, pero claramente su comida y apuesta te llevan a septimo cielo, gastronomicamente hablando claro.


Me pasó hace unos meses con Doppelganger en Mercado de Antón Martín y me ha vuelto a pasar con Tripea en Mercado de Vallehermoso. Un puesto donde comí el domingo y hoy lunes, solo sueño con volver..


Tripea lleva abierto desde 2017 en el Mercado de Vallehermoso y el chef Roberto Martínez Foronda te dedica la más amable de las sonrisas y se acerca con extremada delicadeza y profesionalidad a terminar sus platos. Con su gorra y look informal despista, y solo hoy que me he puesto a investigar sobre su CV he descubierto que él es el alma mater de este especial concepto gastronómico. Descubro que se ha formado con los grandes chefs Dario Barrio, hermanos Roca, André Madrigal  y que ha sido jefe de cocina de uno de mis restaurantes favoritos Nakeima. 


En Tripea, el concepto es fusión con toques del sudeste asiático y Perú y lo que me encanta es que entre semana tienes un menú gastronómico de 7 platos pensado para compartir que cuesta sin bebidas 35 euros y el domingo una carta muy corta , complicada de lectura pero que en paladar funciona de maravilla. Es más, salivo al recordarla. Ostras con una salsa de gengibre y soja, cerdo rebozado encima de un arroz blanco, pollo en dim sum y tiradito de corvina fueron mis opciones, pero los sabores fueron realmente únicos y breathtaking.


Me encanta descubrir estos lugares tan llenos de talento!! Gracias Tripea, realmente flipé!
