Hidden in an alley between Malasaña and Chueca, we found a restaurant with a very original name. Perrito Faldero (Lapdog). Small but well organized, it boasts a warm, elegant and original decoration in offwhite shades with vintage furniture and a beautiful wallpaper with dogs.

The restaurant is run by young Madrid-born chef Javier Muñoz-Calero, the former chef of the Tartan and Muñoca restaurants, where he demonstrated his good taste and savoir faire. The menu includes fusion market food. The starters section features Russian salad with avocado, king prawns and grated cheese; coca with salmon, soy beans, sesame seeds and wassabi peas; low-temperature eggs, mushroom cream, toasted pancetta and crumbs; or sea bream with a spicy touch. As main courses we recommend you to try their house burguer with cheddar, corn, bacon, caramelized onion and rocket and the yakisoba noodles with vegetables, chive, and ginger; or the mini pork ribs marinated in hoisin sauce.

But the star of the restaurant is a 26-metre-long spiced sausage served with crunchy onion, pickle, French fries and a wide selection of mustards that is ideal for two or just for one very hungry person.

As for desserts, try their black chocolate mousse with chocolate brownie and Space Dust or banana tatin with British biscuit crumbs and chantily. Is sounds great, doesn’t it?

Perrito Faldero is ideal for a romantic dinner or for a meal with friends (ask for the private area at the back). A meal à la carte is about 30 Euros and a lunch set menu is 12 Euros. They also have a take-away service.
