Asian food is much more than the typical Chinese restaurant or the omnipresent Japanese ones. Thai food offers many different novelties, such as flavours that range from hot to sweet, going from one to the other with ease. A good place to enjoy some excellent Thai food is Oam Thong, on Calle Corazón de María, 7. It is considered the best Thai restaurant in the Spanish capital, famous for its hot dishes. It opened in 2005 and on its menu you will find a dish whose name says it all: buey del infierno, the ox from hell. They also offer less spicy dishes such as pad thai or the classic noodles.
Known by Thai residents in Madrid despite its recent opening, Thai Orchid is a small trip to exotic Asia. Waitresses dressed in traditional attire and dishes such as chicken satay or green curry with prawns are some of this restaurant’s characteristics, where you can also get a lunchtime menu for 14.50€, highly recommended during weekdays.
