Yoka Loca is one of the dozen or so restaurants and bars to be found amongst the greengrocers, butchers, delis, and fishmongers in Madrid’s historical Mercado de Anton Martin.

Yoka is the owner of Yoka Loca, and she’s there, keeping it real. They have super fresh everything (one of the advantages of being located inside a market), including really excellent sushi and sashimi. Even the wasabi is freshly made – watch out because it’s a lot more potent than the ready-made version. The ramen is incredibly good because the house-made dashi is deeply flavourful  – you’ll drain the bowl for sure!

Cute details include the seats that open up for you to store your stuff in – such a clever way to maximize a small space (although this restaurant has tripled in size due to its popularity).

For those on a budget, try the very economical lunchtime “menu del día” (fixed price menu), which includes a drink.
