Punk BachAre you tired of the same old restaurants with anodyne menus without character? Spend some time reading these recommendations and choose some food with more soul, human touch and original proposals without having to pay excessive prices.

One of these places is Punk Bach, a different kind of restaurant with waiters dressed in exotic clothes and a casual atmosphere with a chic twist, which you can see in the Bach music sheets in the restrooms. It is worth visiting for the place and the cocktails that they prepare, although the food still meets most demanding levels. Proof of this is that they won the award for best tapa in Spain in 2014 thanks to the lobster trompe d’oeil or its burrata, both of which the restaurant is famous for. You can find it on Paseo de la Castellana, 74 (Metro: Gregorio Marañón). Average price per person: 50 euros.

Cheese lovers have their place in Madrid: Poncelet Cheese Bar, on Calle José Abascal, 61. Among its strong points is the bar that is open to the public where you can see the cheese masters in full swing and the rooms that hold up to 150 varieties of cheese from different countries. There do serve dishes without cheese but the menu does generally revolve around it, even for desserts in the shape of cakes or just plain cheese. What should you order? Try its croquettes, the butterfish with a light cheese sauce or the different cheese boards for sampling. Its owners own one of the few cheese shops in the whole city, Poncelet, which results in an obvious experience in the field and love for the product. Average price per person: 50-70 euros.

And from cheese we move onto Asian flavours and the fusion that one of the most famous restaurants of this cuisine offers. La Sudestada. Here you can order delicious dumplings made of pigs’ feet, beef and carabinero shrimp and audacious mixes such as Vietnamese rolls with black pudding, Iberian ham and mushrooms. It has a simple decoration and it allows you to choose sampling menus like the Siete Pasos one, with average prices around 60-70 euros per person. Do not miss out on trying its caipirinha, a Latin twist in an Asian setting that combines well with this fusion spirit.

This refined cuisine deserves accommodation in Madrid that lives up to it. At Hotel Quatro Puerta del Sol we offer you designer rooms with the best value for money in the centre of Madrid.
