This week may be difficult for all of us, more than anything because we have left behind all possible bridges. So, to avoid choking on us, here are several succulent plans. We know that the arepa is not a snack from the capital, but the truth is that it occupies its place in many restaurants. For this reason, we have decided to join the Ruta de la Arepa, which takes to the streets of Madrid until the 28th, at the same time that the procedures before the Community of Madrid have begun to request its recognition as an asset of cultural interest. If you want to support the initiative, there is a campaign to collect signatures through www.arepa.global. An initiative that has the support of great allies, such as the Community of Madrid, the Madrid Hospitality Association and the food giant, Goya. Casa Jaguar (C/ Caños del Peral 9 and C/ Embajadores 41) is one of the places where you can taste them, as is Tío Papelón (C/ Preciados, 40), as highly recommended as Domi La Latina (Cost.de San Andrés, 10 ), Bombini (Prosperity Market), Gramabar (C/ Cruz 19), 212 Bistro (C/ Alcalá, 196), Macuto (C/ Espíritu Santo, 40) Con Sazón (C/ Maiquez 16; C/ Cerro del Monte 1 ; C/ Fátima 2), and Sep7ima (Hotel Only You Atocha), among other establishments.
Surely you know Felipe Bao Li, the chef of China Crown, who recounts years of Cantonese gastronomic history through his preparations. Hence, these days he invites us to travel with the palate and, incidentally, try the “fortune chicken”. It is a dish of traditional Chinese cuisine, which wishes luck and wealth. We have learned that it comes from popular recipes and that it is cooked from a boneless free-range chicken and that it is stuffed with mushrooms, bamboo and walnuts. It is wrapped in a lotus leaf, for flavoring, and in a crust of salt, so that it preserves all its natural juice when baked. Likewise, it is chopped in full view of the customer and is accompanied by a homemade ginger sauce.
Fancy learning how to make dim sum pieces? Specifically, classic pork xiao long bao, chicken and vegetable gyozas and prawn ha kao? Le Petit Dim Sum hosts an initiation course in which to learn some of the most traditional recipes, as well as how to handle the masses, the different types of closure and fillings. The workshop allows you to learn from the best teachers and experts in the field and taste them together with a drink for 50 euros. We continue, tomorrow, as every Tuesday of this month at Only YOU Boutique, the Dolce Martedi are celebrated, where you can enjoy an Italian aperitif, so it is the day of the pizzas, the piadinas to accompany a selection of Italian sausages to harmonize with a glass of Chandon Garden Spritz at the Padrino cocktail bar.
As a novelty, we propose to know the project of Víctor Camargo. As you enter the premises, a seven-meter dragon, made up of three thousand pieces, flies over the Ginza tables.
Un brunch con drags
The chef, who will be remembered for his proposals at Salmón Gurú, Viva Madrid and Baan, suggests a free menu, made up of 40 dishes from the menu that you can repeat. The protagonists are the products from our pantry as well as the ingredients of its Asian cuisine. Examples are the cocido madrileño shabu shabu, the pig ear siu mai, the scallop nigiri and the pork needle ramen.
As the week goes by, it is necessary to plan the weekend, so if you have not been to the Drag Brunch at the Hard Rock Hotel, now is the time, because the plan is served. The ticket price is 42 euros and includes the drag show, the welcome shot and the brunch, of course, in which there are gluten-free and vegetarian alternatives.
Tuna Anatomy La Razón
Don’t Miss: Tuna Anatomy
It is the star preparation of the tasting menu (70 euros without drinks), which Juan Suárez de Lezo is offering this month at Quintoelemento as a tribute to almadraba bluefin tuna. It is, because it is possible to try the loin, the bull and the discharge served on the fish’s own spine.
