Before Estanis Carenzo and Pablo Giudice, the two Argentinians who own this place, brought their pungent and tongue-tingling curries into the city, Madrileños were used to rather soulless understandings of South Asian food. They alone reeducated the palates of scores of local diners with Vietnamese, Thai, Malaysian, and Laotian recipes in a venue that resembles a neat, upscale dinner, with leather benches and wood floors. The short menu comprises clients' favorites—like
the pork and crab spring rolls and the braised beef cheeks in a red curry sauce—to which they add some daily specials. They also have three different sampler menus. Try a Tom Collins with lychees and lemon to accompany your meal.
