La Raquestista has become the talk of Madrid due to its perfectly simplicity since the end of 2015. While there are many great places in Madrid, there are few like this.
Chef Javier was inspired by his grandmother, a former raquestista. According to him, raquestista, is a word that few have been able to use in their lifetime because it is a way to claim the authenticity of a sport, a person, or a tradition. It is the same way with your kitchen.
His daily mission is based on enhancing his product while at the same time avoiding the temptation to degrade it. He does so with a menu (where every day new dishes are found) in which there are artichokes and asparagus, cod, or tasty plump chicken cannelloni.
If you are in the area, it is hard to pass up your hunger by not stopping at one of the few honest raquestistas Madrid has to offer.
