Madrid for Veggies: Superchulo

April 30, 2018

We love eating out and we like trying new things. On our latest gastronomic adventure we went with a group of friends to a 100% vegetarian restaurant even though none of us is a veggie. Superchulo is located in the district of Malasaña, full of cool eateries like this one. In fact, super chulo means "super cool" in Spanish. It's a trendy place that promotes healthy lifestyle through creative cuisine. Their slogan is "feeding lively minds" and their philosophy is to feed body and soul because food is not only about calories and a necessity, it's also about offering pleasure to the senses. Their plant-based recipes are made with natural and organic ingredients. The process of elaboration also contributes to that healthy lifestyle, they don't have a microwave or a fryer in their kitchen.

Care to join me? I'll show you around this wonderful place and what they call "rainbow cuisine", food full of color and happiness.

The restaurant is divided in different areas with decor and names that evoke nature such as "the forest", "cabin area" or "the market".

We were seated under a ceiling full of pumpkins, kind of an orchard upside down. The lights on the wall saying "no bad days" made it clear that only good vibes are allowed in this area.

We started by sharing "the picnic" which consists of focaccia, totopos and crudites to dip in hummus, tomato pesto, guacamole and cream cheese.

Then each of us ordered a dish, these were our favorites:

Aubergine with feta cheese, tomatoes, toasted almonds and a side of focaccia.restaurante superchulo madrid vegetariano veggie vegetarian restaurant vegan

"Buddha bowls" which is the closest thing to a salad but that you "build" choosing from a list of ingredients. Here we made quite a discovery. You may be thinking: how the hell did a chicken get into a vegetarian restaurant? Well my friends, that is not chicken. At Superchulo they call this no-pollo (not-chicken), a.k.a. heura, it's a vegetable protein that looks and has a texture similar to chicken.

And last but not least, my favorite part of any meal: a wide range of scrumptious desserts. By the way, they also offer vegan cakes.

A few things surprised us about this place:

  • We didn't expect to like vegetarian food so much.
  • We didn't know veggie meals were hearty. We were really full when we left.
  • It wasn't expensive at all. Considering the amount of unusual ingredients and their quality we thought this was going to be a pricey restaurant.

Needless to say, we'll be coming back to try more of their fantastic and superhealthy dishes.

  13. This little place looks delightful!! I normally would steer away from a vegetarian restaurant too, but now I won't be afraid to try sometime out! I can't get over the amazing decor and the food looks sooo good. On top of that, I saved the slogan to my phone because I just love the idea that food is more than just calories. ;) I love eating out at special restaurants for the whole experience. I guess I need to make a trip to Madrid!
