Cheap eats & restaurants

Chuka Ramen Bar

Finally some noodles in the Spanish capital that don’t leave you feeling limp.


Certainly no Nobu but this Japanese just north of Chueca and Malasaña is still capable of beating down any sushi craving.

Bar Amor

A little taste of the Malasaña neighbourhood along with inexpensive, yet flavoursome fare.

Los Chuchis

Offering delish, great-value grub in Lavapiés, easily the most popular Brit in Madrid since Beckham.

Cobb Moss

Quick, cheap, and tasty deli fare and possibly the best vantage point for observing talent in Chueca.


Just behind Plaza Mayor, fill up – or get some work done – at this all-day café, as cosy as they come in Madrid.

Lah! Madrid

A Madrid mash-up of South East Asian flavours and culture shock of cuisines. Ok-lah?


Dishing up perfectly edible nosh, elegantly presented at rock-bottom prices, another institution on the local cheap eat scene.

La Magasand

A lofty space perfect for kicking back with market-fresh sandwiches and the latest fashion magazine.

Home Burger Bar

The best burgers in town served with all the classic accompaniments - and some not-so-classic choices.


Hipsters hangout, shop, and recoop at Isolée which mixes café, music, clothes and lifestyle bits.


The best Italian in town at bargain basement prices.


The funkiest coffee shop on the block, serving up caffeine boosters, sugar highs, and a decent selection of video rentals on the side.


Modelled on an old fashioned convenience store, you can pick up some of the best Mediterranean food on a budget in cool, bustling surrounds.
