The best Chinese bar in Madrid is in the underground tunnel of the parking area of Plaza España. Sounds weird, right? Let me explain myself. I’m a huge fan of Asian food, and when I heard that there was a hidden Chinese bar and it was delicious, I couldn’t wait to check it out.
The first rule I adhere to when I go to a Chinese restaurant is to check that there are Chinese people, well, Zhou Yulong fulfills that. The detail of the Chinese karaoke on the TV was the key. The atmosphere of this crowded little underground Chinese bar is unique, you would feel like you’re in Blade Runner. I suddenly found myself transported to another world. And the best thing: the food is amazing! Great quality and even greater prices! Because it is really cheap, that’s why there are so many people standing in line waiting for their turn. But don’t worry they are very fast, you will be served in less than 3 minutes.
Important, how to get there: If you are going down from Gran Via to Plaza España, on the first corner of the place there is a parking entrance, go downstairs, there is a corridor full of Chinese shops, just follow the smell (and the queue of people), it is easier than it seems.
If you like real Chinese food in the most unexpected place you can imagine this is the perfect spot for you! And don’t forget to order the dumplings!
