Except for barbecues, picnics, fairs and typical Spanish terraces, it used to be very difficult to see food trucks around the city. Who could imagine that it would be a success? The street food is not just fast, wrong done and greasy food. Now, it is a trend around the world, and Madrid cannot be less because this city is full of good cuisine and the best chefs. In fact, there are more than 20 Michelin Stars just here. Welcome to MadrEAT!
For that reason, it is possible now to enjoy the best street food thanks to MadrEAT. The next date is 17 to 19 of March 2017. Every third weekend of the month it will be back to AZCA (a garden at Nuevos Ministerios), an unequalled place. This garden is hidden between buildings and offices. When you go into the garden, there will be an open-air square with food trucks and plenty of tables and chairs to sit on and enjoy the food.
You can find the Galician empanada (similar to a salty pie) by the chef Iván Domínguez of Alborada. The dough of the empanada is made with seawater and it is filled with fresh Galician products. Don’t miss the bonito pie. An Atlantic delicious cuisine.
Craft beer La Virgen was one of the first to jump into the world of street food with its foodtruck, which is in the beer factory. They serve various types of hot dogs and sandwiches by the chef Estanis Carezo (Sudestada restaurant) to accompany their Madrilian beers.
Cafe Racer offers tasty fresh dough homemade pizzas -baked in a wood oven-, besides Tunisian meatballs, pancakes, salads and coffee. Its owners come from Peñíscola (Alicante), where they run a motorbike bar with expositions, billiards and good food.
The incredible burgers made by Goiko Grill are a highlight. Their author is a Venezuelan / Basque-Madrilian doctor, Andoni Goicoechea, who created a restaurant with burgers inspired in diferents places and cuisine of the world.
The Flying Cow delights its audience with wines selected by the wine expert Andreas Kubach. Their mission is to discover a fantastic variety between 6 and 12 € every season.
A unique coffee is offered by Toma Café, a little shop with authentic coffees ready to go. And it is the best place in Madrid to drink a cup, we promise!
The sweet proposal of Ma petite creperie will make you fall in love. This food truck is a vintage caravan of 1973. The smell of chocolate or savory crepes will take you to Paris without leaving MadrEAT.
Definitely, this is the best plan in our city: outdoors, culinary trends and a pioneer space in Spain. Also it is a meeting point: Madrid is a city open to the world and the cuisine around the world.
