Madrid, Culinary Capital of South America

One of the most attractive and fun things you can do in Madrid is to roam around its streets looking for many unique flavors. Even though here you can enjoy the cuisine of all five continents, Spain’s capital stands out as the ideal European city to dive into the succulent - and booming – Ibero-American cuisine. With 500 years of common history and an emigration very proud of their roots and with a highly entrepreneurial spirit make Madrid a perfect place to look for the Ibero-American cuisine.

Do the words like flor de calabaza, nopales or chiles make your mouth water? Do not worry. In Madrid you can satisfy that craving in a Michelin-star restaurant Punto MX (Goya underground station). It is the only Mexican restaurant in Europe with a Michelin star and has a tasting menu designed by the chef Roberto Ruiz.

Also following the Mexican tradition is the Entre suspiro y suspiro located in a big old house decorated with Aztec motifs. They boast having the biggest variety of tequilas in all of Europe (Ópera underground station).

Tepic is another Mexican place and you should check out its bar and dining room. They grow their own produce and you will love their cocktails prepared on site.

More options? For example Taquería del Alamillo (La Latina underground station) that has two restaurants and a tiendita (little store) offering Mexican products; or Cantina Roo (Gregorio Marañón), a restaurant and bar offering new Mexican cuisine. 

Also Salón Cascabel (Colón subway) located in the Gourmet Experience of El Corte Inglés on Serrano Street; Gracias Padre (Lista subway) where you can enjoy a unique connection between food and Mexican culture; and Chihuahua Tragos y Tacos (Camino del Cura, 10), a modern and close brother of MALPASO, a space that marked Mexican gastronomy in Madrid. It is worth mentioning Puntarena (San Bernardo subway), located in La casa de México, which has 18 years of tradition specializing in Mexican seafood cuisine.
