Lately guys i´d been thinking that MMDDMM had been missing something. We have our loyal gang of culinary cowboys(gals), an eyecatching logo, our own informative blog, even our own custom made and highly sought after T-shirts. Then it dawned on me what was the final piece of the puzzle. Our own RAP VERSE.
Ladies and Gentlemen, THE MMDDMM R…AP.
On any given Tuesday, always in the afternoon,
MMDDMM cruises the streets, looking to consume,
quality dining experiences, and tempting tasty food,
MMDDMM is open to everyone, and always in the mood.
Anyway, enough of trying to keep you guys amused and more of doing what we do best, i.e, keeping you informed. Another Tuesday gone by and we have another eatery to review. Our hosts, Con-a-che in Plaza San Ildefonso, a hop and a skip from Metro Tribunal. Although the sun was beaming down, the posse elected to dine indoors as we were in summer saving mode and, to be honest, €2 extra just for the privilege of potentially having a pigeon plop on you is a tiny bit cheeky (minus point #1). We quickly announced ourselves and scooted on over to our starting positions. Decorwise, Con-a-che stands out with its mixture of modern furnishings and combination of iron and glass fittings. Think Game of thrones, hippystyle.
The menu, 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 desserts, all priced at €11 (minus point #2). My opinion, if you´re bar is called con-a-che (with H), maybe you should offer tHree and tHree. Just a suggestion! The contents of said menu; ensalada campera, pasta a la boloñesa, roasted chicken and Chiparrones. Beverage wise, it had been confirmed beforehand that wine and casera would be available but in the end we had to make do with poormans tinto de verano. NEVER lie to MMDDMM because we NEVER forget.
While our choices were limited, this was more than made up for by quality. The pasta, perfectly textured and delicious. The chicken, juicy and GINORMOUS. The salad, not overdosed with lettuce and the chiparrones, i have been told, were MMM, MMM, MMM. The presentation, highly commendable. Our waiter only merrited a 6 out of 10. There was no great delay on any of our requests but he still hadn´t managed the art of clearing one plate before presenting another OR preparing place mats and cutlery for our ends of table diners. As regards to atmosphere and ambiance, as usual we generated our own craic and enjoyed listening to the greatest hits of tupac (perfect dining music, bitches). All the above, applying our patented MMDDMM equation, works out at a healthy 3.25 out of 5. Our minus points, which were small but numerous, outweighed what has to be recognised as some of the best food we have ever tried. Que lastima!!
With our hard earned cash counted up and handed over, we took a leisurely stroll to soothe our bellies and surprisingly (NOT) ended up in what is turning into our favourite post meal haunt, J&J´s, home of all the literature you could ever want or need and Cajub Dave´s crazy 2 for 1´s. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
News of next week´s adventure shall be posted shortly but i warn you in advance – bring an empty stomach as next weeks dishes shall be of the german variety and you know how big german sausages are (GIGGIDY). Bis kommenden Dienstag mein MMDDMMers.
