At Jleo's, flavour is king. They say they love the raw materials and you can't argue with them. We tried the Royal Pork, spinach wrap burrito with hot sauce and all the toppings alongside a highly sophisticated Chicken with Jleo's own tasty guacamole and slightly spicy sauce. The pulled pork was melt in the mouth goodness, made to drive the tastebuds wild with the combination of rich sweetness and intense spice from the sauce. The chicken was pure indulgence and a match made in heaven with the avocado and gentle heat underneath.

Delicious huevos rotos with marinated tuna celery cream from Territorio Era in Mercado Barcelo - mmm mmm - these eggs with marinated tuna were so so good. Territorio Era also has an incredible selection of wines - perfect for a weekend aperitivo!
Happy dรญa de la constituciรณn Spain! Have a slice of carrot cake to celebrate. This slice is from El Azul del Fucรกr in Barrio de Las Letras. Just right for this chilly day

Navaja restaurante in
Malasaรฑa. Navaja does BAO differently with presa (steak), cangrejo (crab) and
bogovante (lobster)- they are all delicious and in our humble opinion
among the best of the bao bunch in Madrid! ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿฆ€

Ceviche made by artists. La Ceviceria is the newest addition to the Chamberรญ neighborhood. The small, aquatic themed restaraunt didn't disappoint in ceviche nor design.

What a way to start a Sunday. The baristas are coffee experts and you can get coffee here made many different way. The Macha latte was a winner! Theyโ€™ve also got gluten free, sugar free cakes that are divine! Plus WiFi and working space!

All of the ingredients used in Pasta Mito's dishes are imported from Italy, and the restaurant's mission to present Italian cuisine in its most authentic form doesn't stop there. Within the restaurant is a small shop with a wide variety of Italian products, from pasta to sauces, and more. Also for sale? Pasta Mito's own freshly made pastas (like their heavenly goat cheese & fig ravioli) - take them home frozen or ready-to-eat and savor them for days.

If youโ€™re in Madrid between 4-7:30pm, youโ€™re in time for happy hour at Tierra Burrito in Alonso Martinez. Massive loaded nachos and a liter of lime or strawberry margaritas for โ‚ฌ14. Hard to beat. Perfect to share with friends!

We told you about the delicious food the San Sebastiรกn based company, MiMo Food. We had the chance to try one of their recipes that require a generous serving of their excellent orange flower honey. Here we have goats cheese served with baked red grapes in olive oil and black pepper on toasted baguette and a generous drizzling of orange flower honey! When we tried it, we all agreed the taste was restaurant quality Simple yet effective You too will love Mimo food

Something for everyone at La Mucca. We tried the calabaza (in season) pizza, chicken pizza, all green salad and risotto with bull tail, which was exquisite. Great for sharing and beautiful space.

Pulpo can be made so many ways! This is the pulpo from Udaberri over a bed of tomatos sprinkled with sea salt. Great to have with a glass of wine with friends!

That's not a lime alice. It's actually tequila in a gelatin form made onto a real lime peel. Eat before taking a shot of an oyester in dry ice. Art meets gastronomy. It's a one -of-a-kind dining experience.

1 KILO of cachopo!!! Cachopo is the Austurias meaty dish. What is it exactly? Well it's two thin steaks stuffed with cheese and ham all breaded and deep fried.

This one is in Austurias but weโ€™re on the hunt in Madrid to find you the best๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

GUEST QUESTION
Any suggestions for Granada or Seville?? I'll be there sept/ocr. Thanks!
HOST
In Seville grab a indulgent cocktails at Boston Bar. Go up to the rooftop for a view of the open square. Granada is known for their tapas, stop by Los Diamantes ๐Ÿ’Ž and Heladerรญa Los Italianos for the best artesan ice cream you've had. It's a mainstay in the city. Enjoy!
It's good to be back in Madrid. We're ready to eat our way through every street!

Hmm I wondered how good cake at "the best chocolate cake in the world" might be. Not a single bite left, scraped all those mousse layers down to the porcelain plate. Try it in 50% and 70% cacao.

There's no way to eat like a Brazilian without trying the grilled meats...a country a staple. Most steakhouses will load you up on sides too! Juicy, and crisp on the outside. Finished every last bite

๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡ทBrasil is home of the Acaรญ. This fruit is amazing. You can find an acai bowl in even the smallest of towns. Cold acai is served with fruit, granola and powdered milk. If it's not sweet enough you can get it with condensed milk. It's a bright, cool breakfast. We're finding you the acaรญ spot in Madrid next!

GUEST QUESTION
Visiting Madrid for a couple of days in November; what are some must eats? We're on our honeymoon and sooooo excited!
HOST
Hey! You're going to love Madrid. Must eats in the city will be one excellent pulpo (octopus), croquetas, patatas bravas. As it'll be your honeymoon, you might want to splurge a little. If that's the case, be sure to visit Los Montes de Galicia it's an absolute gem. Spend some time in Malasaรฑa in particular Calle del Pez - loads of nice places there. Favourite coffee shop there is Hanso cafe. Keep us posted when you arrive and we'll guide you based on location and preference

The temperature is now hot, hot, hot. Madrid is almost deserted. Many of the residents escape to the coast or to the village further north. But in Madrid, there remains places you can escape to. Take for example Rascafria. This beautiful national park is less than an hour north of Madrid and the beauty is just incomparable. As a city, what madrid lacks in beach, it makes up for in mountainous regions! Love it

After years eating out in Madrid, one thing is definite, it's hard to find good Thai food. But thankfully we've found Kraachai in Alonso Martinez and it's definitely recommendable. This red curry alone says it all! Thank goodness for that.

Oh Madrid, you never stop to amaze us. Walking down the always busy Calle Atocha going to my favourite, Mercado de Anton Martin, I stumbled across this corner coffee shop. It's the first of its kind in Madrid and serves fresher than fresh coffee and fruit juices and smoothies. The owners go to Portugal weekly to roast and grind the coffee. Because of this, they're only open 4 days a week. Honestly, don't miss this most innovative new venture to hit the streets of Madrid

As the weather gets super hot in August, that picnic in retiro is the perfect way to cool down. We recommend getting a box of the homemade ice lollies from Lolos Polos. They will package them for you in a polystyrene box that will keep them freezing for a long while. Take them to the spot in from of Palacio de Cristal and enjoy them as they cool you down in from of lovely views!

Back at La Casa Tomada again. This place started serving the amazing chilli cheese fries that we told you about. Do you remember? These deliciously soft and fluffy roast potatoes with cheese, pico de gallo, jalapeรฑos and loads of chilli con carne. They have now gone a step further and introduced us to the Pulled Pork fries as pictured. These even more delicious one come with pulled pork cooked in store to perfection. We almost cried upon our first bite!

There's a new La Casa Tomada in town on Calle Jorge Juan, 55. Famous for amazing, mouthwatering burgers, so immense has their success been that they've opened a new restaurant. What's fabulous is that strict quality is maintained with everything made freshly in each day in each restaurant! This makes us happy because no one is eating factory manufactured food so prevalent in the big chains! Have fun there!

There's a new coffee shop in town and it goes by the name Hola Coffee. What makes it different? Here you learn about coffee, not just drink it. What is the difference between the roasts, a latte, flat white etc? The guys at Hola Coffee are more than happy to explain it all to you should you ask. It's a cosy little shop in the bustling Lavapies and makes another welcome addition to this quickly changing neighbourhood of madrid. Add it to your list (again โ˜บ๏ธ)

At the moment, we have a thing for honest greens. We think they're the best new restaurant in town. They cater perfectly for vegans, vegetarians and meaters alike. We went with our vegan friend Sam who has found it absolutely difficult to be vegan in Madrid. But here she was treated like a queen. She loved it so much that in the space of 1 week she's already been back 3 times.

I personally ate here 2 days in a row. I LOVE IT!!
