In love with dining out – Madrid
Three chefs in the kitchen, three sections on the menu, three rooms in the restaurant, and three sizes of servings. Love at first visit. The food served at El Triciclo deserves not three but five stars. Local fresh market cuisine in this amazing restaurant, direct to my favs. Simple rustic design which lacks the flavor that comes with age that certainly will fulfill.
So, three rooms: the bar, where you can have a wine without booking a table if you couldn’t get one or if you are passing by, a space for groups around an old carpenter’s table, and the main room.
Three different sections on the menu, and while you decide you can enjoy a glass of wine and the complimentary starter as the one we had: Potatos with mojo sauce, the tubercle was still warm and at its point and the sauce delicious:
We ordered half rations to share between two so we could try more dishes on the menu. First section: Del mercado al TriCiclo (focused on the quality and freshness of the product), as Calçots (spring onions) grilled with romesco sauce:
Second section: Un paseo en TriCiclo (traditional but elaborated dishes) and the third section: Un viaje en TriCiclo (dishes with surprising mixed flavors) as the Steak tartar with egg and roes:
But here the trio becomes a quartet because the philosophy of the restaurant is to have a non-fixed menu, with seasonal products that they find at the market. So we ordered also: Bushmeat balls (surprising, melty, I wish they could be on the permanent menu), Crispy sweetbreads with vegetables, and Scrambled eggs with mushrooms:
For dessert strawberries and blood oranges with basil ice cream and mint:
All of these amazing half dishes plus 4 glasses of red wine for less than 70€, I’m now one of their new fans.
Reservation required, you can do it online (plan ahead).
