|Fresh peas, spring mushrooms and sweetbreads|
guisantes fresco, setas de primavéra y mollejas de ternera (9 EUR)
After much procrastination we dragged ourselves out and decided to check out one of James' recommendations, local hotspot TriCiclo. This food blogger was so tired he didn't even take his camera.
When we arrived it was obvious that we'd come somewhere a little different to the places we'd previously visited while we'd been in Madrid. It was bright, modern and was busy with a young crowd who had all made the effort for their evening out. I felt pretty out of place in my marathon finishers t-shirt and flip flops!
|Spring vegetables in juice with iberico de bellota|
The food that arrived was nothing short of exceptional. The two savoury dishes in particular get a 'best ever' call for how good they work.
The verduras de primavéra en su jugo con papada de iberico de bellota (11.50 EUR, half serving) was our favourite. Individually the spring onion, asparagus and courgette were the best I've ever tasted. Together they were sublime.
Dinner at TriCiclo was worth the price of the flight to Madrid on its own.
