El Mandela restaurant – Review
African gastronomy is still a great unknown for people in Madrid. There are few African restaurants and they are amongst the least known in the city. Exotic Subsaharan African cuisine is what you will find at El Mandela, our favorite African restaurant in Madrid.
Located in the heart of Madrid, next to the Royal Theater, there is a no better option to enjoy this style of cooking in the city.
El Mandela restaurant is a tribute to Africa. The atmosphere, the decoration, the dedicated staff, the menu, anecdotes about African dishes and even ocassional African music live performances, all contribute to a great experience.
The restaurant offers a simple menu with dishes from different regions of Africa. Each dish is explained in detail. There are African teas, drinks, and wines from South Africa.
Some of the dishes you will find on the menu are the koky from Cameroon, a kind of tofu pasta made up of beans. The Acheque, from Ivory coast, the Thiep Yape from Senegal, or the Mokimo from Kenya.
This is a great African restaurant in Madrid. It’s an immersive experience: from the decor to the music, to the wines and coffee, everything in El Madela is Africa.
