We are all very familiar with sushi as a main Japanese dish, but Japan’s gastronomy is so much more than that!! In fact, in Japan, they love sweet things, their sweets even compete against some of the best and most acclaimed French patisseries in the world every two years in the famous Coupe du Monde de Patisserie.
In Madrid, there is only one place where you can taste Japanese pastries, its name is Panda, open from Monday to Sunday (during tea time schedule) from 17.00h to 20.00h.

El Perro y la Galleta, dog lovers specially welcome!!
I had come across this restaurant while it was under renovation, and was intrigued by why it had such an original name: El Perro y La Galleta, which literally means The Dog and The Cookie. Its logo, old-fashioned and elegant, made me think of a perfume shop or an elegant pet shop.

Close to Retiro Park, there is a very cosy café with great deco that will make you think of another city far away: Fonty. The name is an abbreviation for Fontainebleu, the French village well known for its castle and famous business school – where the owners, Luis and Marie, spent some time studying. The café has an international atmosphere, both in the customer mix and the delicatessen. The chefs are French and Slovenian.

We never expected but it did happen… My Little Madrid will be featured in a TV show next January in many countries: the United Kingdom; the USA; Australia and some countries in Asia. Best of all, we will show some of our Madrid favorite places to famous and lively British chef Ainsley Harriott! The TV show is called “Ainsley Eats the Streets", and this time, the famous chef travels around the world looking for new gastronomic experiences. Of course, after going to Morocco, he could not fail to visit Madrid!

Café Comercial is one of the most magical coffee shops in Madrid.
It was opened in 1908 and once you enter this beautiful venue with marble columns and wooden tables, you immediately experience a feeling of splendorous old times and important historical moments having taken place there. If you have a look around today, you will see some interesting characters who come in daily. It has been mentioned in many books and films. Actually John Malkovich used to come here while working in Madrid.

We are big fans of Ponzano Street, it seems that it’s becoming the coolest street for tapas and lunch. anywhere you go, you’ll get a nice surprise. Our favorites, the original Sala de Despiece, the popular Fide , yummi pizzas at Picsa, and last but not least La Contraseña. Therefore, do not worry if you head to Ponzano without a reservation; any of those places will be a good choice and you can go back any time to try the rest of them.

So, we are back in town and it’s official, the holidays are over. We all look very suntanned but inside a terrible post-holiday depression has overcome us… no more outdoor activities either in the sea or the mountains, the majority of us are now confined to be in front of a computer.
Summer holidays are over and we have the pavement as landscape, however, we at My Little Madrid have a recommendation that will, for sure, make you feel as though coming back to the city wasn’t so terrible... as you will have the feeling again of being free among nature!!
You just have to follow our instructions:

There's a new place in town! "Bocadillo de Jamón y Champán". It has all the right qualities for being successful and definitely deserves a visit by My Little Madrid followers.

Big glass windows, lovely antic furniture, organic food and a pleasant atmosphere close to the Retiro: I am talking about Il Tavolo Verde, (which in italian stands for the gaming table). The perfect place to go to by yourself for a relaxing lunch or tea time with a book. I sometimes feel that in Madrid, there are not enough places to go to on your own when you find yourself in a quiet mood.

We are big fans of the fantastic bookstore La Central in Callao! We consider it much more than a bookstore for many reasons. Firstly, they have more than 80 000 book references in several languages and many different sections that avoid the typical collection of best sellers you find elsewhere. It is a library within a 19th century palace. If you feel hungry or want to take a rest, you can also try their great “Bistro” with very tasty food options for breakfast, lunch or tea time. You can even stay for drinks at night in their bar, "el Garito" , where many events and book presentations take place.

My recommendation today is very special and I am convinced it will be a pleasant surprise: La Imperial de Raimundo. I discovered them at the second floor of the Mercado de San Antón, where they have a long wooden table and a lovely terrace. Now they just opened a second Imperial in Nuevos Ministerios area that is worth the visit.Courageous entrepreneurs! The new Imperial de Raimundo keeps the same young, original and patriotic spirit that is part of their success and a bigger terrace!

Spring is here! Even if, up to now, we delight a rainy spring. Until we get real sunshine we can still enjoy of a blossoming garden plus delicious cocktails at O´Clock Pub & Garden. Especially now that Rent a Garden has crafted a lovely flowery decoration at the entrance of the pub. It will make you forget the noise in the street and smell wonderful flowers while you taste two different Hendricks gin suggestions elaborated by Jordi Otero! Hurry up, the flowers will wither sooner or later! En español abajo sigue leyendo.
