A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Samy Alí es uno de los grandes chefs outsiders de Madrid. En su restaurante ofrece lo que el llama “cocina salvaje de fusión planetaria”, con una propuesta que cambia día a día. Todo en un local en el que cada detalle está cuidado hasta el mínimo detalle, con un ambiente de comedor clásico y una vajilla en la que cada pieza es única. Entre las propuestas de Alí están la “Wasificación”, una ostra con wasabi o el plato “2 conceptos”, que crea sensaciones contrapuestas a partir de algas y foie. Son platos imaginativos y rompedores que hoy están en el menú y mañana ya pueden haber desaparecido, reemplazados por otros nuevos.

Sí que quedan algunos clásicos en la carta como el caramelo ‘eléctrico’, que incorpora pimienta de Sichuán y que puede llegar a adormecer la lengua, o el pichón que presenta en tres preparaciones distintas. Los postres también sorprenden, con “Basta”, un coulant con canela, cardamomo, pimienta, comino, nuez moscada, clavo y mantequilla árabe. La cocina, abierta y cada vez más integrada en la sala, permite ver el trabajo incansable del chef y todo su equipo, comprometidos con una cocina radical e única.

INSIDER tip

    A correct menu, even though I would have enjoyed a clearer structure to it. An indian inspired dish followed by a spanish inspired, the ethiopian, then mexican, then indian again, etc... You get the idea, a bit all over the place (most of them delightful though). I would have enjoyed something more linear, with a bit of a story or a journey to it.

    The food was great, well thought out and every dish felt like a surprised. The ingredients are fresh and simple but the chef was talented, he was able to combined Asian techniques with a Spanish flare. Would definitely come back if we are in Madrid.

    First time in Madrid, wanted to experience something special. And this dinner was extremely special. It blows your mind with the whole restaurant concept. How much effort they are putting to create taste of Asian cuisine mix with European. I definitely recommend everyone to come try these surprises. You’ll be shock how much you’ve been missing out.

    They make things a little bit to complicated in the kitchen.

    I wish I could experience this more often. The dishes are well explained, including how to eat them, in what order... The pairing of the drinks works well. Very inventive mixture of tastes and sensations. Bravo to the chef and his team!

    The service and staff are impeccable and knowledgeable. Did a 16 course tasting menu,, 75% of which was really something special. There were some dishes that were outstanding, but there were also a few dishes I could have done without all together. Overall the meal was special and well executed but the service is really the star of this meal/restaurant.

    Very unique cuisine. Definitely worth a try. Some of the tasting menu items were delicious and all were very interesting. The service was excellent with waiters explaining each dish in great detail. Easy to recommend and my wife and I will definitely return in the future.
