Navaja is the name of this cute restaurant has been a great discover, without any doubt it is a place to go!
Located in the famous quarter of Malasaña, it is a very warm retro style restaurant, with all type of details. Waitress are really kind, and they will help you to have a really nice experience, you will not be disappointed
A mix cuisine between Galician and Peruvian with some Nikkei trace, they do not do reservations, so you should risk going there and wait for a table, but it is worthwhile.
The menu is small, but more than enough. I have been there several times there, and I still have not try all the plates I would like to, as there are some dishes I cannot help repeating each time. Such us Ortiguillas with Kimchi, very special texture and flavors in your mouth. (picture 1)
My favorite dish is Crab Bun with piper mayonnaise. They cook with the full crab with shell included, it is amazing! And this is my stronger recommendation. (picture 2)
If you want to finish with something sweet, you can try their Tom Pay, as they make in a really particular way, mixing the typical galician filloa with cream and adding some light flavor to pineapple and pisco. It is not too sweet, but it is quite special. (picture 3)
You will not regret to try!
