Kabuki wellington

This is the first Japanese restaurant in Spain with a Michelin star. Ricardo Sanz, its chef surprises with 10 dishes. If you want to try something new, you cannot miss his wagyu burger nigiri, its parrot or sea bream usuzukis and its wide variety of sashimis. Ricard Sanz, impresses with different dishes of Mediterranean fish made in the purest Japanese style. You can't leave without trying their usuzukuri of tuna belly with breadcrumbs with grated tomato, oil and Maldom salt. A spectacular mix of flavors and texture.
Among its specialties, in addition to finding the sardine nigiri with mel and mató, or the spicy tuna belly dish with fried eggs and Canarian potatoes, you cannot stop trying the socarrat rice nigiri with butter and tuna tartare. Delicious!
For dessert and a final high if you want something surprising, order some minichurros with matcha powder, the creation of Oriol Balaguer.

One of the former chefs at Kabuki Wellington, changed cuisine and launched his own restaurant: Txa-Tei, a very special place that I discovered very recently. They take care of everything in detailThe simple fact that their tableware has been exclusively selected and imported from Japan, being of a specific type of ceramic, says a lot about what you will find in the restaurant. Although it does not look lusty on the outside, the quality of the product is spectacular, and it is a very special place with very few tables, which makes it the most private.
You can't leave without trying the red shrimp tempura, the Tataki de Toro, and the Chef's sashimi. Simply spectacular.

I particularly like the Miyama de la Castellana restaurant much more. In addition to having a perfect location and the most minimalist decoration of the locar that I love, the menu does not go unnoticed. If I have to recommend something to you, it is that directly ask the waiter to advise you when ordering, since your letter is quite broad and this will facilitate your work. Whenever I have been, he has been completely right with my tastes.

Within your letter, I recommend that you try the Wagyu beef rolls with chives and mushrooms, the sushi mix composed of 6 nigiris and 6 varied maki so you can try the scallop, the lemon fish or the bluefin tuna among others. The bull and eel nigiri that will blow your mind and as a stellar dish Gindara, which is a roasted black cod marinated in miso which is terrific.
When choosing desserts, ask for a varied section that includes some like the mochi with green tea sponge cake and four strawberry textures, the caramelized apple cake or the chocolate huramaki with vanilla ice cream.

You can't forget about accompany your dinner with a Japanese mojito which is the best I've ever had, made with matcha tea.

99 Sushi Bar

Although it has three premisesOne near Nuevos Ministerios, another near Castellana and another in La Moraleja, I am going to tell you about my experience with the one on Calle Hermosilla, very close to Castellana. As soon as you arrive, they offer you as an aperitif some Edamame (fresh soy) pods with Maldon salt that are very good.

If I have to decide on a dish on the menu, I definitely recommend the tuna tartare, marinated in miso sauce, which is spectacularly delicious. After the tartar, do not deprive yourself of the trio of nigiris made from Waygu beef with tomato, bull nigiri and butterfish and truffle. Three essentials. If you like makis, I recommend the smoked eel in crispy brie cheese that surprises with that crunchy touch that gives it a very special flavor.
If you like meat, ask for one Wagyu beef entrails, which is smoked and very tasty.

It has a extensive Japanese gastronomic menu with avant-garde touches. To start, they serve you an aperitif that is different every time you go. You cannot start without trying any of their tartares, both the salmon, the bull or the Wagyu are delicious. The salmon one is one of my favorites, it comes mixed with a light mustard sauce that gives it a very good flavor. and with a very cool presentation, on a bowl full of ice. If you are a fan of sushi ask for the el Truffle-poached quail egg gunkan, sea bass sushi braised with ponzu butter, and truffle butterfish sushi. All three are impressively good.
To finish, order some fried chicken and beef skewers that come served with rice.
