Chueca

Chueca,a Spanish taverna serving popular tapas items and which just recently opened to much fanfare,is a welcoming addition to the city’s burgeoning line-up of Spanish restaurants.
The restaurant derived its name from Chueca,a trendy neighbourhood in the heart of Madrid known for sidewalk cafes,tapas bars,restaurants,and its lively night life. Located on Gough Street in Soho,the restaurant is noticeable from afar–the open air front of the restaurant is lined with a long bar counter with comfortable stools on both sides. The décor is contemporary,bright,and sleek with a friendly ambience that exudes relaxation and comfort–a great place to hang out,eat,drink,and be merry.


We were there for its Brunch Menu($588 per person)which is served on weekends. Chueca will be offering Free Flow alcohol drinks($178)when available. There is also an ala carte menu of tapas and other popular Spanish dishes


The brunch is absolutely sumptuous!It starts with the Royal Chilled Seafood Platter for Two(fresh Boston lobster,4 Fine de Claire oysters from Spain,6 tiger prawns,chilled tuna tartare,avocado)–talk about making a statement!All the seafood items are fresh and yummy. The tapas served includes Chef’s Rusa -Potato salad,mayonnaise,tuna;Padron Pepeers -Deep-fried Padron green peppers,extra virgin olive oil;and Croquetas -Duo of truffled mushroom and iberico ham croquettes(4 pieces).


The brunch includes the choice of one main course and one dessert. We chose Chueca’s must-tried Spring Chicken–Half roasted spring cheicken marinated in lemon and fresh herbs,homemade fries,and its signature Chef’s Canelon -Truffled meat stuffed pasta roll,porcini mushroom bechamal sauce(add $40 for shaved truffle)and Carabinero Rice–Juicy Mediterranean red prawns rice,onion,tomato,squid sofrito(to share for 2 and add $60 per person). All the dishes are appetising and zesty and make for excellent comfort food.
