In love with dining out – Madrid
At last!!! we were all looking forward to this! finally good Ramen in Madrid, not only good, really amazing Ramen, and not only Ramen, also great Gyozas and awesome Baos. Chuka Ramen Bar remembers to those superb Ramen Bars you can find in Tokyo, but also to Momofuku, the famous David Chang restaurant, and the reason is that one of the chefs (John Husby) worked there, what good luck he decided to move to Spain :)
Gyozas are a great way to start, order both of them, Butifarra and Prawns, I can’t choose only one option.
If you want to try some more new-in-town dishes you can go with the Dok boki, a Korean recipe made with rice and chili.
And then, Ramen! they have 3 options: Shoyu (dashi and chicken soup with noodles, pork belly, egg and nori), Miso dashi (dashi and miso soup with noodles, vegetables and shiitake) or Hiyashi chuka (no soup, cold noodles, sausage, sichuán chili, watercress and sweet cashews).
I will also suggest you to order some Baos, there are amazing options as the pork one (David Chang’s iconic pork bun at Momofuku Noodle Bar) or the fried chicken bun. And if you can eat a little bit more, the Mochi doughnut, their only dessert, a rice pie with lime ice cream.
And this is not everything, they also have surprising Japanese beers worth trying.
The prices are very reasonable, 20-30€ per person.
My prayers have been answered, I can eat amazing Ramen at last in Madrid, thanks Chuka guys.
