FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Take a publishing house, add great food and drink, and what do you get? The answer is Malpaso, an extension of the editorial company of the same name. With a focus on fresh, quality produce, this restaurant has its roots in traditional Mexican cuisine, celebrating authentic flavours and serving everything from breakfast to supper. Unpretentious and accessible, Malpaso is tailored towards the customer, creating a space in which to feel at home. Downstairs, a bar looking out over the street offers an extensive list of cocktails, such as the house Malpaso cocktail and five different types of margaritas. Don’t miss brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, from 12 to 4pm, and tacos for € 1,50 every Tuesday. Upstairs, a modern lounge area, complete with sofas and comfy throw pillows, leads into the sleek dining room where you can sample the menu of Mexican favourites, which includes fajitas, tacos and wild sea bass ceviche. Nods to Malpaso’s literary heritage can be seen throughout: a stretch of wall displays artwork referencing a particular book, changing every few months, whilst works from the editorial house line the walls. Food and literature may seem like an unusual combination at first, but Malpaso have created a space in which to enjoy both.
