It can feel quite paralysing when you are in a big city, full of great restaurants, and you do not know where to start looking for a good restaurant, never mind which one to choose. That is why we are offering you a few tips. If you want something more classic and traditional (something which is becoming a rarity these days), try El Cocinillas (Calle San Joaquín, 3), next to the famous Tipos Infames bookshop. This restaurant, which opened in 2010, has earned an excellent reputation since then and one of its strongest points is the actual restaurant, painted in white tones that make it very pleasant and comfortable to eat in. They have a varied menu with some excellent dishes, among which we recommend the baby cuttlefish with garlic as a starter and the lamb in honey sauce as a main course.
Yakitoro is a complete different options, based on Japanese taverns that serve grilled meats. it is owned by the famous TV chef Alberto Chicote and perhaps this is its main problem, because it is always full, even on a rainy Tuesday lunchtime in winter. However, there are many tables and things move on quickly. Prices range from 5 to 10 euros per dish, which allows you to try many different flavours in what is undoubtedly a unique culinary experience.
