  • Madrid's cuisine becoming increasingly diverse

    2010-07-29

    While Madrid's traditional Spanish fare has been long touted, a new wave of ethnic cuisine is sprouting up in the Spanish capital, as Spain's restaurateurs head in bold new directions.

    According to the New York Times, many Spanish restaurants are beginning to incorporate diverse techniques and ingredients in their food, which is putting Madrid on the map as a premier cuisine destination.

    "Right now no other European city except London offers the same range and diversity of international cuisine," Victor de la Serna, an editor and food writer for the newspaper El Mundo, told the news source. "Plus here you have 'New World' restaurants serving gourmet Peruvian or down-home New Orleans that would be inconceivable in Paris."

    The new influence is seen at restaurants like Diverxo, which offers new takes on traditional Spanish food by mixing it with an Asian twist. Reservations are taken precisely one month in advance, begin at 9 AM sharp, and are usually gone by 9:10. The seven-, eight- and nine-course meals usually take about three hours, but the investment is worth it - the eatery recently received a prestigious Michelin star.

    Foodies should definitely consider making Madrid a stop the next time they plan on engaging in European travel.
