My experience in Gofio Madrid
Beyond the "papas arrugás" my knowledge of Canarian cuisine was nonexistent. You discover it this way so peculiar I found it a pleasure. If you go with the idea of eating "typical" you'll get a big miss because what they do in Gofio Madrid is, although relying on tradition, create contemporary cuisine based on techniques and products canaries. So you do not just come a little to the island without leaving the center of Madrid, sino que you also discover a new kitchen and live a very contemporary dining experience. My favorite dish was the Dim Sum Squid and was greatly surprised banana wine (I was offered as a "shot") I loved. Highly recommended visit if you want to surprise someone!
