About the restaurant Borax

El restaurante Borax es un viaje de ida y vuelta entre paladares y la isla de Cuba que se emplaza en el madrileño barrio de Chueca. De hecho, lo puedes encontrar fácilmente al salir de la boca de metro que lleva el nombre de esta singular barriada de la capital española.

Utilizando productos de temporada y, sobre todo, de calidad, el restaurante Borax reproduce la esencia del sabor cubano. Platos como Revuelto de trigueros y setas, Tomate relleno de atún sobre salsa de salmorejo, Salmón a los sésamos con salsa de naranja, Cerdo asado y yuca en su punto y Ropa vieja, tamal y arroz son algunas de sus mejores versiones.

La Tarta Tatín casera es un lujo para los más golosos que pone un punto y seguido a tu experiencia en el restaurante Borax. Sí, seguido. Y es que el final merece ser protagonizado por su ron añejo de importación y excelentes mojitos y daiquiris. ¿Preparado para viajar a Cuba?

One of the best meals we had during our two week trip in Spain. The dishes reminded us of our favorite Cuban restaurant in Denver, Cuba Cuba. Great find!

Our meal at Borax was a little disappointing. We decided to try this place because it had such high reviews on theFork app, but the food was mediocre. I wasn't bad, but it wasn't memorable either. The service was good and the staff was friendly. With limited days in Madrid, I wish we had eaten somewhere else.

The restaurant is a little quiet place with warm and friendly staff who would make you feel at home. The food tastes and looks like home-made Cuban food. We were welcomed by Ariel and Laura, both really nice people. Ariel gave us a lot of tips regarding their week menus too. Good price for the portions as well... definitely recommended!

Paladal en el centro del barrio de Chueca. Sabor cubano por los cuatro costados. Si comes una ropa vieja acompañado de un mojito del ron añejo te sentirás tocar el cielo!!! jejeje. El trato muy agradable. Repetiremos sin duda.

This Cuban restaurant in Chueca is small but just right. The menu is limited, but everything we ordered was delicious. They did not have the cocktails listed on the menu (they were basic anyway) so we tried the Cuban beers instead - very good. The Tamal as a starter was terrific, large and tasty. For main plates, we had the huevos & vaca frita. Both were excellent. We were too full for dessert. The meal started with typical Spanish olives and bread - this was a distraction from the Cuban-ness of the rest of the meal. Will visit again!
