Like entering Morocco, they have a delicious mint tea. You must try the Al Harira, a thick, spicy soup containing chicken, tomatoes and ginger with other herbs and the Tajine of chicken with prunes, almonds, egg, and vegetables & a Tajine of Lamb, couscous and vegetables. They are phenomenal!

The façade of the building is its most original feature, surprising visitors when they discover a municipal market behind the magnificent entrance. As well as the fresh food normally sold in municipal markets you can buy a wide range of other products, ranging from clothes to the books on sale! An incredible experience on weekends with performances

Flavors of Galicia in a very local atmosphere! This restaurant can be very crowded!! I recommend having breakfast (natural orange juice, coffee, "tostada con tomate" or "pincho de tortilla"). Specials are "Pulpo a la Gallega", "Carne de Buey" & "Chuletillas de cordero". You would find a lot of artists and theatre people from the theatres opposite

His owner, JUAN RARO, is a visionary person both in the aesthetic of his restaurants and in the chemical of flavors of his kitchen. And here, his new baby, "LA NOBIA", with "b" instead of "v". A manifesto of intentions for those who love to be rebels and to explore beyond traditional flavors. The murals are painted by the famous street artist ZE CARRIÓN. And the colorful chairs are upholsted by SRA. WOOD! I recommend the most madrilenian dishes like: - "Callos a la Madrileña" - "Patatas a la importancia con gambas" - "Mollete de calamares con alioli de lima" - "Cocido madrileño" (every Friday at noon) But "LA NOBIA" also looks for creating a dialogue with Lavapiés's complex cultural fibers. For example, don't miss the opportunity to ask for: - "Tataki de ternera con ensalada de arroz wakame y mahonesa de jalapeño". - "Bocados de bacalao con calabacín y cebolla roja sobre salteado de pimientos asados y espinacas". Here you will find a selection of vegan entrees too! Ahhhh! And don't forget to finish with a delicious dessert!!! I recommend: - "Leche frita al madroño con salsa de limón" - "Pastel de 3 leches" - "Tarta de queso" - "Tarta de Chocolate"

Drinks & Nightlife

Candela is an icon on the Madrid flamenco scene. Paco de Lucía, Camarón, Enrique Morente and Ray Heredia have all been here, though as spectators rather than performers. It's the ideal place to let yourself go and enjoy the atmosphere and there are performances every Thursday and Friday, which feature both professionals and enthusiasts. A very interesting place to enjoy flamenco in a more real and non touristic atmosphere while taking a Ribera del Duero's wine! And nighthawks will be interested to know that it's one of the last places to close in Lavapiés.
