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 ☺️)

Wouldn't you love it too? Take for example this dish with grilled watermelon, marinated and char grilled organic meat and fresh spinach and roasted new potatoes. Don't say we didn't tell you...

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!!

What we ate at Honest Greens had us at hello! Honestly, words cannot describe how amazing everything tasted. Kale, spinach, quinoa, rocket etc have never tasted so good. And to top it all off, the perfectly marinated and chargrilled steak was ace. This is the option for the carnivores. Just lovely 😊

Things are not always what they seem. This is actually a savory custard with a cherry tomato in the middle. But at this place, every plate keeps you guessing and every dish becomes a feast for the eyes and and adventure for the palette👌🏾

At pastelería Lisboa you will find these very tasty pasteles de Belem and they taste as good as they do in Lisbon. This little Portuguese owned cafe is full of charm and will no doubt become favourite of yours!

Puerta del sol (Gate to the Sun) is the supposed centre of Madrid and centre of Spain. It is one of the most iconic places in the city and also the busiest. You would rarely see it from above as in this picture. So here is a glimpse of the square from a private balcony. Unparalleled views we say. #LoveMadrid!

We're recommending El Gallego because its location one stop north of Chamartin makes it something of a hidden gem. A Madrid restaurant of this quality in the city center would be overrun with people. Just go once and you’ll be sure to enjoy an unforgettable Galician meal

Thanks! On the list!
If you do make it to Platea, we recommend a stopover at Kinua. This is a Peruvian joint serving excellent food and pisco sours. Do try the usual esp the ceviche. However, if you're lucky, they will have their "bocata de chicharrones" which is heaven on earth basically. Made with slow cooked pork belly marinated for hours on end and with a host of fresh salad ingredients with a flavourful dressing then finished off with sweet potato, it's unmissable. FIND KINUA ON THE BASEMENT FLOOR

If they ask you, what's your favourite thing about Madrid, how would you answer? My answer would be, those days when the city is bathed in blue skies, there's something about the way the sun hits the red brick on buildings such as this one. The architecture in madrid is beautiful and it's a fact! Share with us your answers...

Such a happy welcoming city! There's just an energy of warmth there.
MuchBites 4 months ago
That's very true! The sun must help. They say that those from the north aren't as warm as the Madrileños but they do warm to you after a while. Again, the weather must play a part. It's very rainy up there

Did you know about the MuchBites map? It's a map of all the places we've eaten at and approved. This will make it easier to find a restaurant closer to you based on your location. 😍😃😍😃😍

Are you still in Madrid? We recommend you try something new and different. Dine in complete darkness and try some wine you won't be able to try anywhere else. Make this experience the pinnacle of your time in Madrid!

GUEST QUESTION
We're coming to Madrod for the 2017 world pride in 2 weeks! What is your #1 pick for a Thursday night dinner with friends to try some modern Madridian food before a party weekend?! Thanks!
HOST
Not long to go now! The recommendations are endless. But we'd say for modern Madridian cuisine, you must head to Aire. They are at the top of their game with experimental cuisine that mixes traditional Spanish with cutting edge modern techniques! You'd love it ❤️

Aire: Calle de Orfila, 7

Pizza pizza! In tune with the coming Pride weekend. This small pizza haven is right in the heart of Chueca! It's affordable and delicious. Perfected crust and loaded enough to keep you on your feet for the festivities. 🍕🍕🍕

One of the top places being tipped as a must stop during World Pride 2017 is Kalla Beer Factory in the heart of Chueca. This place will wow you with a variety of craft beers from around the world on tap and by the bottle! Go on... say you're really excited to be coming to madrid!!!!!!

Put your hands up if you're coming to Madrid very soon?

If you'd like to take back an original gift from the city for your nearest and dearest, then we suggest a visit to Chatitas in the very posh district of Salamanca. From there, buy the gift of delicious spanish style macaroons. You can have them in full size versions or the mini fun size ones. We've tried them both and they're super!

Everyone will thank you 😉

Couscous and lamb slow cooked in dates and almonds are a win! This spot is in chueca and an authentic Moroccan dining experience. Sweet and savory meats are the home runs. Check it out in Chueca!

Here's something to switch up your palate. Ever tried Ethiopian cuisine? It's spicy and saucy what's not to love? The bowl is called"shiro" it's a creamy chick pea sauce. The other is called "doro wot" which is chicken in a spicy sauce laid over "injera" which is the crepe consistency bread you see. Wash it down with a St. George blonde beer. Best part is you get to eat with your hands. 👋

Trying some Nómada beer - this one is light, acidic, and refreshing. El Sainete has beers to pair with each dish, and the waiters are all experts on beer.

If you don't know, now you know it's a Goiko. If you're just coming to Madrid or will be here for the world pride next month, you must make a stop at Goiko for a never disappointing perfect burger. It's one of our top burger spots in Madrid and you'll see why!

We'll plan for hangover Sunday! Lol
That's rosemary bread, cheese bread, multigrain and more baked to perfection , you can smell it from across the market. This market is an excellent place to try new foods, shop and listen to live music. Only once a month so mark your calendars for June 10 & 11!
