Lamucca’s Organik Parriya opened last July its first “Organic Grill” in Madrid’s Fuencarral St. A proposal that they defined as: “radically organic, local and committed to a flexitarian lifestyle”, so, of course, we couldn’t not try it.
Their kitchen, which has a large charcoal grill, is open all day, Monday to Sunday, from early for breakfast from 8:00 until late at night, 02:00. Organik Parriya offers both vegan and carnivorous alternatives, always under the premise of respecting the quality of the raw ingredients to the maximum. It has an exclusive range of organic spirits and wines and a Tap Bar with 16 taps of beer.
“We will be green, whenever we can, and when we can’t, we will be logical”.
On the menu you will find local and organically produced vegetables, grown without chemical intervention (i.e. without pesticides). As well as certified organic meat from farms where the animals are raised in the open air and fresh fish and seafood from sustainable fishing. Not to be forgotten are the homemade desserts and ice creams, which are made with natural herbs, seeds and spices, without colourings or refined sugars. No preservatives are used in any of the dishes. As for the preparation, the food is cooked on the charcoal grill of holm oak, making it lighter, with less fat.
We tried some very tasty grilled leeks with romesco sauce and pistachios, some fresh rock mussels in Thai sauce -which are only available in season- and a tender octopus accompanied by causa limeña (a typical Peruvian dish whose most characteristic ingredient is the yellow potato) prepared on the grill. Dessert was not to be missed, so we let them advise us and tried their creamy cheesecake and an artisan chocolate ice cream by TöTO.More than satisfied with the recommendation, traditional but surprising flavours.
We were spoilt for choice as the whole menu was more than appetising and, after being so satisfied with the food, we really wanted to come back: above all, we would like to point out that we still had to try the bluefin tuna tartare tacos from Balfegó, a world leader in sustainable catching, as Lamucca boasts that it is one of the few restaurants in Madrid to offer authentic bluefin tuna.

The grill is the return to the origin of a cuisine that knew how to enhance the flavour, a cuisine in which food does not lose nutrients, nor calories are added to the dishes, a cuisine in this case located in a very tasteful place where we recommend you to go without haste 😉
And remember that at Lamucca it’s not the time that matters, but the desire to eat!
