If you love Chinese food and you’ve tried to find an authentic Chinese restaurant in Madrid you know it might be difficult. Stop searching, Lao Tou in Usera, Chinatown Madrid, is the place you’ve been dreaming of.
Very big menu with all kinds of dishes, they always have a big selection of fresh seafood: the spicy soup of head of hake with noodles, the razor clams with leek and the crabs are always delicious. The portions are ginormous and the prices are ridiculous, many of them are offered as half portions, which makes them perfect to share and try more of.
There are only a few spicy dishes and they are marked on the menu, be careful if you can’t handle the heat very well because they are really spicy. Tell them and they will make them to please you, not spicy at all.
Most of the waiters only speak Chinese and the menu is in Chinese and Spanish.
Due to COVID measures, they’re only doing food to take away right now.
