The moment we booked our latest holidays in Spain we made our reservation at Bibo Madrid, the new restaurant of Spanish Chef Dani García. We finally got a table at Bibo Madrid! It’s a long story: last Summer, when we heard this new concept, a mix of traditional classics and nomadic cuisine, was opening in Madrid we tried to book a table, but sadly we came back to Germany before it opened. Bad timing. Last Christmas we tried again, but couldn’t make it because it was fully booked for the whole holidays. So this time we were determined: we were going to make it! And we did! After all the waiting and failed attempts, Bibo Madrid did not disappoint. Quite the opposite, we were mesmerised by the incredible food, the attentive service, the fun atmosphere… and the bathrooms, graced by the sound of birds! They’ve thought about every detail to make a dinner at Bibo Madrid a delightful experience. Everything was perfect. We started with a cocktail, of course. The innovative menu in the form …
Who doesn’t love dainty jewellery? After a few years loving statement necklaces, we went to the opposite direction. Isn’t that something frequent when it comes to trends? Now all we wear are tiny, delicate pieces that are perfect for our daily routine.
Could this be the most beautiful hotel we’ve ever been to???
Madrid has lots of wonderful restaurants. Every month new establishments open their doors and, inevitably, others say their goodbyes. However, good traditional Spanish food with a twist, great service and lovely decor are the elements that guarantee success. Taberna los Gallos knows it and that’s exactly what they offer.
We are very happy to be back in Spain. We’ve had a weekend full of friends, great food and a little bit of Christmas shopping. Since we still had to buy a few presents, we decided to visit the Slowrevolution market, the Christmas pop up and amazing new project of Federica & Co. If you don’t live in Spain you probably won’t know what that is. Well, let us explain…
Today it’s pouring. We woke up to one of those warm humid late Summer mornings that remind you of Autumn. As I walked to the office I saw a few people sipping their coffee all wrapped up in light blankets looking through their windows and staring at the grey sky. Definitely a lazy morning that feels like a farewell to Summer. But with the taste of ice cream still in our palate, with our skin a little bit tanned and with the fresh memories of our holidays in our minds, we publish today these pictures of one of the most amazing swimming pools in Madrid. Because we are looking forward to Autumn, but we already miss the sun, the long days and the bare feet.
When we come back to Madrid we usually hesitate: should we visit our favorite spots or should we try new ones? Nowadays there are so many nice restaurants that is really difficult to keep up with the hype. But among all the new openings, there was one that caught our attention. Flavia claimed to be the new home for authentic Italian cuisine in Madrid, so we had to give it a try. Located in a quiet area of Madrid’s city center yet far from the tourists and the traffic, it was not the most awaited opening, but its proposal certainly looked attractive to us.
Hotel de las Letras is elegant, quiet and memorable. Just like a good book. It’s an space devoted to words, with quotes on the walls by famous writers and poets, so the sober atmosphere almost reminds the guests of a library. A very comfortable, kind of hip library, that is.
We had read about Bosco de Lobos in a couple of blogs and magazines. We were initially attracted to it by its beautiful decor and all the fuzz that it had created in Madrid’s gastro scene, but to be honest we doubted about its cuisine. You know the drill: new fancy resturant, with a focus on design, lots of shots in all the right Instagram accounts, international vibes… We actually expected a nice but not impressive meal. Well, we, foodie snobs sometimes, we were totally wrong. The food was utterly delicious. So much as to come back twice in a couple of weeks.
This week has been hard. We miss Spain. Sigh! But thinking about our last holidays we have realised that during the last four years we have created our very own, touristy Spanish traditions…
