Asian Food Fix - Barrio Malasaña

Today we're hanging around Malasaña, a trendy barrio of Madrid and my old living quarters. For those of you who aren't familiar with Malasaña it's the hipster hangout of this capital city -coffee shops, hairdressers, mustaches, bicycles and chihuahuas on every corner-  and also boasts a very active nightlife. Here we'll explore the Asian food options in and around this neighborhood. If you're looking for a quick bite and something beyond the standard vegan + vegetarian joint then look no further for tempting flavors and substantial portions.

Nigiri

Asian Food Fix - Barrio Malasaña

Where: c/Fuencarral 91
Metro: Tribunal
Price: 2€ - 7€
What to expect: Options! Although this is a sushi joint, they serve a plethora of plant based dishes to enjoy seated at their family style tables or take away to munch on at home: yakimeshi (Japanese fried rice), quinoa veggie salad, wakame + tofu salad, wakame + quinoa salad, udon soup, miso soup, gyoza ramen, futomaki, edamame, mochi and artisan ice cream.
What else?: Tuesday Special- (3x2) Choose 3 items and only pay for 2!

*Nights - 9,50€
*Weekends - 9,95€

What to expect: A buffet! ALL.YOU.CAN.EAT. All vegetarian! Come hungry. A wide selection of noodles, rice, fried food, meat substitutes, legumes, pasta, vegetables, salad, and desserts.
What else?: Drink not included in price. They also have a menu you can order from and Menu del día, but really why?


The Big Bahn

Asian Food Fix - Barrio Malasaña

Where: c/ Don Felipe 4
Metro: Tribunal
Price: 5,95€
What to expect: A fusion of flavor. These bánh mì's (vietnamese sandwiches) are filled with "vegballs" made from rice + edamame topped with cilantro, cucumber, pickled carrots + daikon, sriracha, and mayo. *vegan mayo available* They sooooo hit the spot!
What else?: Their hours are a bit confusing.

Walk to Wok

Asian Food Fix - Barrio Malasaña

Where: c/Mayor 4 and c/Hortaleza 7
Metro: Sol and Gran Via
Price: Depends on how many toppings you get. I usually walk out having spent around 10€.
What to expect: A full belly. This is my go-to when I'm hungry, don't want to cook, and tired of Spanish food and pizza. Asian fast food.
What else?: Your food is made fresh right in front of your eyes by the wok masters.


Pad Thai Wok

Asian Food Fix - Barrio Malasaña

Where: c/Corredera Baja de San Pablo, 41
Metro: In between Noveciado, Callao, Gran Via and Tribunal
Price: 5,50€ - 9,50€
What to expect: Similar concept to Walk to Wok, except this is Thai based and you've got many more options. Noodles, rice, curries, soups, salads and rolls.
What else?: Celiac and Vegan friendly! Tip - don't get the veggie burger. It's a frozen patty on not-so-fresh bread. Disappointment city.

I'm very hungry now! Nice showcasing of the food @Cepee Tabibian! I eat a dish similar to the rice noodles about and our Chinese Restaurant calls the dish, Chicken Chow fun. It's rice noodles with veggies, soy and not sure what other spices. The sandwich looks very tasty!! Sounds like a fun area to visit/hang out for the afternoon-evening! Thanks for sharing.
