Peruvian Restaurant: Quispe

In the area of Alonso Martinez there is a great variety of restaurants and bars. A few weeks ago where the belgian restaurant Mejillón was, I discovered that a new Peruvian restaurant called Quispe had replaced it.

Nikkei: fusion from Japanese and Peruvian

My favorite Lomo Saltado 

Those of you who follow us know what we love Peruvian restaurants. The name is a wink to the country as Quispe is one of the most common surnames in Peru. 

The decoration is elegant and sobber but some Peruvian details will be found in the lovely photographs hanging on the walls or the cushions with Peruvian fabrics.

Delicious Ceviche!!
In the menu divided into Cold Dishes, hot dishes and signature tapas you will find delicious cebiches and tiraditos to Nikkei products such as makis and niguiris. But what I found extraordinary and that I would not get tired of eating was the delicious Pisco Saur I had as well as the traditional Peruvian dish Lomo Saltado, and a super original dessert of Coulant de Lúcuma which is a typical Peruvian fruit with chocolate.

Hope you like, it is open from Tuesday to Sunday

New opening in Gran Via, Gran Clavel

Gran Via has a new restaurant worth going to, it's called Gran Clavel and I tried it last week. In fact, more than just a restaurant, they have three foodie concepts so that everyone who enters the restaurant can find what they are looking for with a Madrid touch, between classic and modern.

Vermuteria - tapas bar
On the one hand, there is vermouth bar, where you can have a more informal "tapas" with vermouth, which is the typical drink, or of course with a beer or wine, but as the people of Madrid like it, a tapa to accompany either a potato omelette or some good anchovies.

In addition, Gran Clavel has the Casa de Comidas, that shows the typical recipes of Madrid and Spain but with a more modern touch. I loved the Russian salad, the artichokes and the delicious fish like the ray. On Saturdays, they offer stew on the menu, very appetising on these cold days.

I loved this dessert.. Strawberries with vinegar
Finally, if you're more of a wine lover, there's a wine bar with a special attention to the wines of the Madrid area. It's not just Rioja or Ribera!

Bar de Vinos



Gran Via tiene un nuevo restaurante que merece mucho la pena ir, se llama Gran Clavel y estuve probándolo la semana pasada. En realidad más que un restaurante, son tres conceptos foodies para que todo aquel que entre en el local, encuentre lo que busca con un toque madrileño, entre clásico y moderno.

Por un lado, tenemos la vermuteria, donde de forma más informal se puede "tapear" con vermouth que es la bebida típica o por supuesto con una cerveza o un vino, pero como nos gusta a los madrileños, una tapa para acompañar ya sea una tortilla de patatas o unas buenas anchoas.

Además, Gran Clavel tiene la casa de comidas que muestra las recetas típicas de Madrid y españolas pero con un toque más moderno. A mi me encantó la ensaladilla rusa, las alcachofas y un pescado riquísimo como es la raya. Los sábados, ofrecen cocido en el menú, muy apetecible con estos dias tan fríos.

Por último, si eres más de disfrutar del buen vino, tiene el bar de vinos con una atención especial a los vinos de la zona de Madrid.

Madrid for Kids.. some recommendations! Hairdresser and Baby swimming lessons

This post is dedicated to parents who have young children. We love to think that there is also a Madrid of special places for them.

It's always boring to go to the hairdresser, but what if instead of a conventional salon, your mother takes you to a magical salon? This super idea is located in the north of Madrid, by the Plaza del Perú and the children will find fantastic stars and cars where they can go through a good haircut and if they have lice... the solution also to that uncomfortable problem.

Also, now that summer and the swimming season in Madrid are approaching, we suggest you take your baby or toddler to a very exclusive little pool where they will be taught to float so that they are not in danger. Although in Madrid, there are many schools of this type I recommend a swimming pool where the groups are only 4 babies and parents in the water with classes of 45 minutes. Attached photo, ¿guess which one is my baby?

Este post va dedicado a los padres que tienen niños pequeños. Nos encanta pensar que también hay un Madrid de sitios especiales para ellos.
Siempre es aburrido ir a la peluquería, pero que pasaría si en vez de una peluqueria convencional, ¿tu madre te lleva a una peluqueria mágica? Esta super idea se encuentra en el norte de Madrid, por la Plaza del Perú y los niños se encontrarán con estrellas y coches fantasticos donde pasar por un buen corte de pelo y si tienen piojos.. la solución también a ese incomodo problema.

Además ahora que se acerca el verano y la época de las piscinas en Madrid, os proponemos que llevéis a vuestro bebé o niño pequeño a una pequeña piscina muy exclusiva donde le enseñaran a flotar para que no corra peligro. Aunque en Madrid, hay muchas escuelas de este tipo te recomiendo una piscina donde los grupos son solo de 4 bebés y padres en el agua con clases de 45 minutos. Adjunto foto, ¿adivina cual es el mio?
