Madrid – the capital of gourmet contrasts

by Nova Vozrak

Madrid – the capital of Spain and one of the most remarkable culture centers of Europe. There are numerous museums and pieces of art here. Royal residences are also placed here, thus the city keeps up the high level of architecture style, parks, and everything else that you may come across here. The food places are of no exception – they are numerous, each with its own style, sometimes classic, sometimes very bizarre. Food in Marid is a mixture of styles from all over the country, yet with tiny details, light alterations that form a new version of each traditional dish cooked in this capital. It is also remarkable that the main ingredient of dishes here is meat – unlike the marine regions. Noticeably, street food is as interesting as the more classic one.

La Tasqueria is a unique place, where the menu is built of dishes made of chitterlings: ears, lungs, etc. If you want to try an unusual dish – this is the café to come to. For example, the pig ear with escargots and salad is among the most classic-looking ones. If you are of a risky kind, taste the pig glands with truffles – not a usual pork dish, but a tasty one, although, you should be ready for the psychic block you may face. The bravest may order goat brains – unusual, with a taste that is not for everyone.

La Bola – a place where you can try the taste of Cocido madrileño which recipe didn’t change since 1870, the year when the restaurant was opened for the first time. It is made of several meat types (five in all – beef, chicken, chorizo, jamon, pig fat) and is cooked in the unique clay jars and served in a special way, in fact, it’s a kind of stew, which has its special serving in Madrid. First, the broth is served with noodles. When you are done with it, everything that remains in the jar is pulled out to a plate. This separate way of serving is special for Madrid, while in the South it is offered as a soup – everything on one plate.

Next – the place in the oldest city region comes to mind – Restaurante Botin. This is the oldest restaurant in the world – it flawlessly works since 1725 and, thus, is mentioned in the Guinness book. The recipes used are what the place is praised for. The specialty of the place is the suckling pig – it is roasted on the wood burning stove for two hours with greens and spices. The dish is enough for the group of six. It is very tender and has a spices-balanced taste. Besides this dish, you can order gazpacho, fish stew, grilled lamb, cheesecakes and other dishes from the menu that are offered here.

La Gastro croqueteria is a place that should be paid attention to. The place specializes on croquettes, but not on usual ones. Each of the variants has a traditional dish inside, providing a new feel to the well-known meals. Pisto croquet is also filled with vegetables and covered with a fried egg, just like the original Pisto dish, and it is sided with geese jamon. Pincho moruno – pork meat which is marinated during a day, cooked, and served on skewers, sometimes with vegetables, sometimes without them. La Gastro serves it in the form of croquettes. The taste is remarkable and very unusual. If you want to taste something traditional in a modern form – come here.
