We often come across this question multiple times a day. Some of us pore over Yelp reviews, as if a 5-star place will guarantee a well-chosen meal. Others employ deeper research methods; everything from searching the hottest, most talked about, Michelin-star awarded restaurants to soaking in every word of reviews provided by critically-acclaimed (current or former) cooks, restauranteurs, and food connoisseurs. And further still, others rely on sheer luck and nonchalance to stumble across a hidden gem. The latter was our experience, annndd it worked out pretty damn well.
Orixe is a unassuming restaurant located in the La Latina neighborhood of Madrid. The space exudes modern chic, the menu is straight-forward, and the servers are very welcoming. Most importantly, we were famished and they offered a promising three-course meal for 20 euros. While it wasn't mind or tastebud-blowing, it was a simple, but clean afternoon meal. We walked away feeling pretty satisfied.
