In love with dining out – Madrid
Michelin starred restaurant Kabuki Wellington deserves a place in Las Mesas de Vanessa, so I went there for the first time with a 5 star woman as hostess.
Japanese ikebana at the reception, a large bar and two heights for the tables, nicely decorated but space is not the only highlight, Kabuki Wellington is food oriented.
The menu is a bit long, so you’ll need some time to think what are you going to have, or you can prepare your visit taking a look to the menu in advance on the website (there are some special dishes on the web you can order at the restaurant even though there aren’t on the menu), or be advised by the maitre. You can have traditional Japanese food but but its strength is the fusion, mixing elegantly Spanish and Japanese dishes, as Pan Tumaca Toro Usuzukuri.
They’re obsessed with the best fish, proof of that is the Tuna tartar with ponzu, it melts in your mouth, rich of flavors, no fat at all, delicious.
One of these hidden dishes you can order is Trilogía Kabuki, with 3 of their best choices: Quail egg with truffle nigiri, Wagyu burger with tomato and caramelized onion and Butter fish with chives and truffle egg.
Not only the fish is outstanding, we order carpaccio, the meat was really soft and tasty, after this you can’t go back to the meat you’re used to!
I think I had a crush on Ricardo Sanz at that point. Oriol Balaguer is in charge of the desserts, we ordered Yufu jelly with strawberries and pumpkin seeds, oh my goodness!
It is a bit pricey, we were two, we had a glass of white wine of their amazing cellar and sparkling water, we ordered two Trilogías and a blue tea and the bill was of 160€, but really, really worthy. Thanks to my hostess to for joining me on my first visit that will be unforgettable.
