Poke Bowl Invasion

There is an indisputable trend going on in Madrid for the last months, I am talking about Poke. I first heard about it a year ago, I was told that hawaiian surfers were very fond about it and I was surprised by its simplicity and freshness. Poke is all about raw fish cut in dices with vegetables and usually a basis of rice served in a bowl with a great variety of other possible ingredients like vegetables and sauces.

This is Poke!

The two restaurants that introduced me to this hawaiian gastronomy were La Pagoda, a really nice Asian restaurant close to Bernabéu and lately I found it too in Nubel, the wonderful Reina Sofia restaurant.


However, now it seems that it has become the latest trend, and you are no one if you haven’t found your Poke favourite restaurant, probably because it is quite cheap and healthy. 


Some of the pokes you can find in II Poke

During the past months, I’ve seen it everywhere. If you are not confident with the concept, I will introduce to this new fashion by saying that if you are fond of sashimi and ceviche, you will become a fan of Poke. 

My best recommendation would be to go to II Poke, near to Alonso Martinez where apart from the Poke-menu you can prepare Poke to your very own style.
First you decide the basis: rice, quinoa, kale or bamboo hawaian rice.
Second you choose the fish: Salmon, tuna, shrimp 
Third you choose between vegetables, seaweeds or fruits 


Finally, you can eat it at the restaurant or have it delivered to your address.


II Poke
Hope you like it!!

Have a Scrumptious Brunch at Meat Restaurant

New Meat in Vallehermoso 72
As big fans of the hamburgers of Meat Madrid, we were delighted to hear that their business is going so well that they have opened a new Meat Madrid at 72, Vallehermoso street. The look remains as cool as in Alonso Martinez, (4, Santa Teresa street) where you will find an industrial decoration with bricks and beams and where you will get the same tasty hamburgers, milkshakes and french fries.

Pointer- Party Time!

Pointer in Plaza Colón is without any doubt one of the new places to be and be seen. It has opened recently in an enormous venue close to Plaza Colón and its two floors are always fully booked. The secret of their success is the crowd, mostly in their early thirties with sufficient budget to spend on food and drinks and looking forward to having a great time.

Mejillón - Moules, Bière, Frites


If you have travelled to Belgium, I am sure the concept Moules et Frites is familiar to you. I have always loved it, as it is: a simple and cheap meal which is also quite fun. Actually, my friends and I were wondering why in Madrid there weren’t any places where you could just have mussels and french fries.
It seems that my demand was heard and last week I had the chance to visit Mejillón. It is exactly what it sounds like: mussels in a big casserole, french fries and a choice of more than 30 different beers. Belgium dessert specialities like the famous gaufre are also available.

Tuk tuk and Deliveroo’s special discount for My little Madrid readers


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.

El Perro y la Galleta, the new cool place in Madrid!

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.

Aire, New “Rotisserie" in Town

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.
