I hate Sushi. My wife knows this, so she had to lie to get me here. Well, maybe not lie, but certainly not reveal our exact location until it was way too late to change the arrangements with friends.
I wasn’t happy. Tricked into going to a restaurant where they only eat raw fish and seaweed. That’s low.
Then suddenly I was handed the menu. It had chicken on it! And noodles with vegetables! And more chicken! And looking around, I realised that I was amongst Madrid’s elusive Beautiful People. All, it seemed, was not lost.
So hurray for the weirdly named Pink Sushi Man, where difficult people like me can still walk out feeling satisfied, where the crispy chicken is divine, the noodles are delicious, and the psychedelic decor is as far as you can possibly get from your average Madrid bar.
Highly recommended for a change of scene.
The lunchtime ten Euro menu del dia gets you 5 plates of allegedly very good sushi (or nice cooked food that never saw the ocean floor!) Come very early (by 1.45 for lunch), or risk a long queue.
