Cilantro – a gastrobar in Chamberí

Cilantro Gastrobar  – Calle General Álvarez de Castro 7 (+34 914 45 55 53)

We stumbled upon this on our way to Plaza Olavides last night and decided to try it out for dinner.  And, what a fortuitous decision!
While waiting for a table, we started at the bar with a delicious Tempranillo/Cabernet wine from Navarra.  Once seated, we ordered an array food – totopos de oaxaca en nachos, ensalada de tomates raf, aceite de albahaca y queso de Parma, a few pinchos, and ‘the’ hamberguesa.  Everything was delicious – flavorful, fresh (the mozzarella di bufala was incredible), and interesting (the basil-infused olive oil added a pesto-like seasoning to the tomatoes). Alongside we tried a white Rioja that was the perfect compliment.  We ended with the cheesecake hailing direct from Nueva York. It was delicious.
