I have recently discovered the only Asian street food restaurant that exists in Madrid: TUK TUK Street food It has been a great surprise because they have a nice selection of food from Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapour. In fact, when you go there you get a mild feeling of travelling to Asia, where it is quite common to eat all kind of different foods in the streets: tasty, cheap and all in small bites.

In the restaurant Aire you will forget about busy Madrid. Here, I got the feeling that I was going back in time, to the basics of the cuisine. In fact, the decoration just enhances this feeling: wood, chopping boards pending on the walls, a big countryside photo with geese and an enormous open kitchen. In it there is a large wooden table where everything is cooked and prepared in front of you.

Last weekend we had an amazing day showing off our favourite places in the city, mainly Barrio de Salamanca to a selective group of 11 french luxury tour- operators. They were all invited by Madrid Destino, together with the Oficina de Turismo Española in Paris, Air Europa and The Leading Hotels of the World wanting to explore and promote Madrid in their travel plans.
The town hall’s Tourism Department contacted therealthing.es a Spanish travel agency that focuses on luxury experiences and the Spanish culture in order to get the best from Madrid. We were very grateful to them, when they contacted us for organizing a “My Little Madrid morning”. In this event, the mission was to show the tour-operators, on a Sunday, the gastro and shopping side of barrio de Salamanca.

Dabbawala has been a great discovery and is certainly a restaurant to go back and recommend. Its situated in a very quiet street, but still one of my favourites, Españoleto!

“El Corte Inglés”, one of the most traditional Madrid shopping centers, has been innovating in the last years regarding its gourmet section. It has always been modern if compared to other big shopping centers and the work done is fantastic. We need to congratulate them again as they have opened an spectacular Gourmet venue in Serrano 52.

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:

I am so happy with this new eco trend going on in Madrid! Last Sunday I went to El Huerto de Lucas, in San Lucas 13, a covered market with a nice restaurant in the middle that is worth a visit, especially as walking down the Street you don’t seem to realize that there is a huge space of 450 square meters inside that can be considered as an eco-paradise! Actually their motto is ‘the first medicine is food’!

There is a delicatessen in Madrid that all seafood lovers should definitely visit: La Conservera by Frinsa. It is a great place for tin can shopping, and despite the fact that we sometimes consider canned food less interesting than fresh food, I have to say that the quality of products inside Frinsa’s cans is amazing! a wonderful marine breeze for your next menu!

After reading so many good reviews, I could finally visit Mama Campo and was happy to see that, not only it is one of the hot spots of the moment, but it also has a great service and an awesome philosophy: eat great, healthy and responsible in a nice decor.

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 have been to a very tasty event this week organised by Elite Gourmet, Spanish seal of quality for gourmet products, in an outstanding venue called Casa de Velazquez. The building belongs to the French Ministry of culture and is named after painter Velazquez because the legend says he liked to paint from that same spot sunsets and mountain views.
