Its not easy to come upon a sandwich that uses fresh natural ingredients and home-made sour dough bread in Madrid. Luckily, Raúl Martín Guillén, has opened his small restaurant on Conde Duque Street where he is giving us just that. The concept is a small quaint restaurant which serves a selection of well-prepared salads and 7 sandwiches, the latter served with a side of either “patatas revolconas” which are mashed potatoes with fried rashers of bacon, green salad with honey dressing and baked potatoes with “boniato”. To be honest we didn’t love this side but the other two were tasty. The idea is that the sandwich menu will change and evolve depending on inspiration.
Raúl Martín Guillén has an interesting story behind him, a publicist who started making bread at home as a hobby and now makes the bread served at Crumb. He has teamed up with Itamar Taub, an Israeli chef who creates the sandwiches mixing and matching ever so creatively and making you crave another.
I loved that they are serving La Virgen Beer which is made locally in Madrid and is a delicious thirst quencher.
We had the Provençal chicken with guacamole, lamb lettuce and alioli.
Sardines al sumak, cherry tomato salad with herbs and mayo
Oriental roast beef with rocket lettuce, cherry tomatoes, pickles and dijon
We enjoyed the three and really counted say which one we loved best! Definitely a nice place to grab a quick bite at a very reasonable price. The sandwiches are 7 – 8.50 euros and the salads are 7.70 – 8.70 euros.
