UMIKO: FUSION RESTAURANT BY JUAN ALCALDE AND PABLO ALVARO
Open for under a year, with a cuisine in which sea water is the protagonist, with a Japanese and Mediterranean feel, we find Umiko: the fusion restaurant by Juan Alcaide and Pablo Álvaro, a couple of young chefs with already long careers who we assume began building their dream of a restaurant while working in the renowned Kabuki Presidente Carmona, where both acquired a greater knowledge of the Japanese gastronomic culture. Umiko is a modern restaurant with singular tendencies and a kitchen full of flavor, where Juan and Pablo invite us to travel and taste different cultures in which they have been infused, as they display the multiple techniques they have learned in their journey to prepare their famous dishes, among which we find their “Lotus flower chips with yakiniku sauce” or the “Superb Umiko red mullet topped with its own fried fish bone and fine seasoning”. Furthermore, Umiko also has a bar for six diners behind which we will find Juan and Pablo ready to surprise us with their gastronomic proposals.
If you’re looking to travel this summer, without leaving Madrid, then book a dinner reservation at Umiko (C/ Los Madrazo 18) and discover what’s in store for you at Juan and Pablo’s exotic kitchen.
