"Lily" in Mardid is a Peruvian restaurant with a little twist: they have 'Chifa', a fusion of Peruvian and Chinese! Not recommended for vegetarians...

Madrid has quite a few great Peruvian restaurants that range from very fancy and quite pricey to modest little places like Cafeteria Lily. Don't let the cheap prices fool you -- these people take quality and consistency seriously. Being actually inside a market (Mercado de Mostenses) means everything is really fresh.

A little twist is the food at Lily is "Chifa"; a fusion of Chinese and Peruvian food. Alongside classics such as their ceviche (which is so good), you'll find noodle dishes and wonton soup, although if you are a vegetarian, I must be honest, this is not the place for you.

Everything comes in hearty sharing portions suitable, and appears from the little kitchen very quickly. The owners are very proud of their place, which has been open for more than 10 years and is very popular -- come early or be prepared to queue on a Saturday especially! The market is open until 14:00, but when it closes between then and 17:00 there is only one entrance open so you'll need to be a little intrepid to find it!
