If you like Asian food but you’re bored of eating always the same sushi, Duck & Sushi is your salvation.This restaurant in Chamartin collects the best of Asian cuisine and gives it a personal touch. You’ll never think about oriental cuisine in the same way.
Malasaña or Alonso Martínez have no longer the hegemony of harboring cool places. In this case I raised a little above AZCA to Sor Angela de la Cruz Street, to taste a new restaurant with Asian cuisine that’s giving a lot to talk about.
The interior design is done by Madrid In Love, one of the most important interior decoration firm of the capital and specialists in commercial and restoration, such as Random, El Imparcial or Mestizo Store. I love the touches they give the spaces having a recognizable and independent style. Very high spaces, large windows and warm interiors to feel comfortable eating or shopping.
They had reached my ears recipes of this restaurant that only its name woke me hunger. So one day last week, avoiding the midday sun I could, I stood there at lunchtime. In this case I sat in the interior terrace, where you can also smoke. If you want more privacy, you can always go back to the dining room overlooking a quiet internal garden.
Everything I tell you in this post was ate by three people, sharing all the dishes, which is always more fun After freshening up a glass of water, a detail that should be copied worldwide, we started with our trip through Asia.
And I say Asia because the menu of Duck & Sushi is a selection of the best recipes from Japan, China, Vietnam or Thailand. All combined with one of the star ingredients of the restaurant, duck. But not fried duck, but a juicy and roast one. So the first thing we ordered was the Duck breast rolls with a lime sauce for dipping, crisp and with the first punch of flavor.
Then, we continue with Toasts Japanese rice and California Rolls. I have not wrong with the picture: toasts are croquette shaped, with tuna and little spicy. The California Rolls couldn’t be tastier, topped with crispy duck. If toasts are bigger, they couldn’t put them in your mouth.
Teppanyaki Rice was tasty, a good dish along with Shiitake mushroom casserole finished to fill me. Beware the casserole that arrives freshly cooked and quite hot. I say this because I couldn’t stand the urge and I got burned. Gastroblogger occupational risks.
Ending the meal, two Japanese desserts that couldn’t be more different: Mochis and Fried ice cream. Three diferent mochis (one of green tea, of course)and a big ball of fried ice cream.
My list of Asian restaurants continues increasing. Whether Japanese, Chinese, Thai, fusion… If you’re a fan of their kitchens, don’t miss it
