    Anybody had a fine meal in Madrid?

    Trying to find a place for a really good experience. Quality of food over everything else.

    Yeah, I'm heading down to Seville and Granada after that, maybe I should save my big sit down experience for that.

    Long time ago, pretty sure it was the place, sat at the counter and order off the chalkboard, grilled goodness.

    Norte Sur. Effing delicious and very affordable.

    Higher priced, but I really enjoyed Terraza del Casino. Think it’s down to two Michelin stars now.

    Wife is from Madrid. We eat there a lot. Here are a few of my favorite non-Michelin, non-trendy restaurants with outstanding food:

    Asador Molinero
    Avenida Europa 28
    28224 Pozuelo de Alarcon
    +34 913 51 37 42

    You will need to take a 10 minute cab ride from the center. Totally worth it for the "Cordero Lechal" (lamb). Make sure you order it when you make your reservation. The place is nothing to look at, hasn't been remodeled in over 20 years but all tables will be reserved. Go for lunch (around 2:30) and enjoy.




    Restaurante La Española
    Avd. Juan XXIII, s/n
    28223 Pozuelo de Alarcón
    +34 91 715 87 85

    This is the place to go for meat. Also a 10-15 minute taxi ride from the center. Start with some Croquetas de jamón ibérico, Setas de Vivero a la Plancha con Alí Oli, Pimientos Verdes Fritos and get the Entrecot de carne roja de Cebón a la Parrilla for the main course (comes with fries and chimichurri). Also, go for lunch so you can enjoy and digest this feast.



    El Subastero de Málaga
    Carrera de San Jerónimo, nº 32 - MADRID
    +34 910 27 78 44

    This is the place to go for seafood. In the center. My cousin in-law is from Malaga and he goes here for food from home.

    One more:

    Larrauri
    Calle de Juan Ramón Jiménez, 9,
    28036 Madrid
    +34 810 52 55 17

    Don't order anything off the menu, just go with the flow and let the waiter/owner/chef? bring you what he suggests.
