A new Asian arrives to seduce Madrid’s palate

Yum House opens its doors in the capital bringing an exotic variety of Japanese flavors

One of the defining characteristics of Madrid is its multicultural spirit and the ease with which it welcomes every nation and makes it its own. Thus, a few steps from the Plaza de España, a new Japanese restaurant has opened to surprise our palates and show the best of Asian cuisine. It is Yum House Madrid, the third restaurant of La Pagoda group, located on the first floor of the Letoh Letoh hotel, hides a subliminal menu with the best Japanese flavor.

This year, Asia has become fashionable, because after its recent reopening to the world, there are already those who are planning a getaway to the exotic continent. In Madrid, the journey can’t wait and that’s why the restaurant has set itself the goal of presenting the best of the continent through the palate. Once at Yum House, if it is our first experience in Asia, the people in charge of the place will always be the best guides.

With the right proportions, we start the tour with the classic Vietnamese rolls or Dim-sum, prepared in the unique style of its chef. Of course, in a culinary visit to the continent, the variety of Sushi is a must order. All their pieces are marinated to the precise point of spiciness, just enough to fully immerse us in the culture. Once we are in the restaurant, a great choice of starters are the magnificent nigiris. But if it is about authenticity, the menu offers dishes such as: Chinese eggplants, duck crepes, Japanese noodles “Yaki-udo”, “sirloin Teppanyaki”, among others.

In this new experience, cocktails occupy a place of importance and it shows in the eccentricity of its bar. Therefore, before taking the tasting to another level, it is essential to try their attractive cocktails: Nikkei Sour, the Sake and the Mery or the Viva Yum. However, the recommendation is to try the “Japan to Cuba”, since it is a cocktail that tastes like Japan at first touch, but as it enters the mouth it changes to a more tropical flavor, just like Cuba.

Despite being new in the market, Yum House is already beginning to position itself as one of Madrid’s favorite destinations, because adventure and new cultural experiences rhyme with the personality of the people of Madrid.


The Arabic restaurant whom fire on Madrid

The Nômadâ restaurant shows its more adventurous and exotic side with its renewed culinary and scenic proposal that macerates to the rhythm of Afro-dance

Adventure, exoticism and a set of surreal culinary experiences are some of the sensations offered by the renewed proposal of the Nômadâ restaurant in Madrid.

Under the direction of Arnaud Keres, the restaurant, which had already positioned itself as one of the trendiest places in Madrid, has reinvented itself even more to launch a 360º staging with which it seeks to dazzle the youngest public in the capital.

From now on, Nômadâ not only offers the best of Arabic cuisine, but also provides a musical and dance show in the hands of passionate artists, who leave everything on the dance floor to turn a dinner or meal into a moment of ecstasy and good music.

It is a gastrocultural journey, which begins at sunset and extends into the night, infinite in Îstar, the club located on the first floor of the sister establishment in the same street Serrano 41, which worships Afro-house music.

The décor of the establishment is the first step to the Arabian adventure we are about to witness. Whether it is your first time or you already know a little about Arabian food, the suggestion is to let yourself be recommended by the experts, since the service is very personalized and the hosts will know how to make suggestions.

The options to share are a great idea to start a great journey through these lands, hummus, rice and vegetables prepared and fully adapted to the Mediterranean palate.

To share Nômadâ proposes options such as mutabal or Adam and Eve, vine leaves stuffed with rice with vegetables and a touch of pomegranate molasses with tzatziki. The journey through the Mediterranean has an obligatory stop at hummus, used as food for more than 7,000 years, with its four varieties: traditional, zaatar, pesto and har.

The cuisine is, in short, an exquisite cultural mix is reflected in the culinary, so it is difficult to opt for the Arab essence. Starting with this tasting of flavors, the exquisiteness of the dishes augurs a great day, if we have gone for lunch, or a long night if we have chosen a dinner.

Although the restaurant is an excellent option for a lunch or an evening meal, the dinner has a special touch, because the sound show that accompanies the weekend nights is a unique experience. In the middle of dinner, Nômadâ has real artists who are responsible for starring in a show of African drums, saber dances and a musical background of Afro-house. In short, a tribute to the cultural richness that surrounds us.

The staging continues with the traveling spirit in the cocktail bar with 20 proposals on the menu that have been carefully thought out by the house bartender. For this new display of flavors, different ingredients have been used to find the perfect balance and make each one unique. Some of these options include cocktails such as Sherezade, Norah, Palmira or Maffeo.

Since we are at the peak of the night and with the energy at its peak, at Nômadâ we can also enjoy a shisha, before entering the infinite night at Îstar.

The place is named after the Babylonian goddess of love, life and fertility and maintains that aura of mystery and spirituality that surrounds temples. It is located next to the restaurant (on the first floor) and is a hidden and exclusive temple of Afro-house. For lovers of intensity, Îstar is the ideal place to end an enigmatic dinner on a high note.


48 hours in London

A two-day adventure is enough to immerse yourself in England’s great capital city

Discovering London in 48 hours can be a difficult task, but not impossible. Being the capital of one of the Kingdoms with more historical weight in the world, there will always be time to enjoy all the countless activities to do in the big city, even if we lived there. Therefore, below we will share with you a tour to take advantage of this spectacular express trip.

Since we want to enjoy the city to the fullest, it is better to take foresight and make reservations some time in advance if we want to visit a particular monument. To begin with, the main thing is to stay in a centrally located hotel that allows us to move easily by any means of transport. A very good option is the Treehouse Hotel, located in Langham Place, very close to Oxford Street. This peculiar hotel is a building decorated with wood, motivated by sustainable actions.

Treehouse Hotel London

From afar, it is a cozy and warm space due to its construction with natural waste. Its rooms
and naturalistic English decoration, with a luxury of another level. In addition, the giant window of its rooms will ensure a perfect stay for all that London has in store for us.
has in store for us.

Depending on the type of reservation we choose, we can enjoy its cooing restaurant “Madera”, which is located on the 15th floor of the building, with an irresistible organic culinary offer, perfect for any time of the day. To access it, it is not necessary to be staying at the hotel, but it is necessary to make a reservation in advance.

Starting from this point, the first day, we can choose to go in the direction of Oxford Street and head to the Soho area, which is full of stores, as well as the most curious bars and cafes, which stand out for their originality. Thus, we arrived at the intersection of Piccadilly Circus, a space to dazzle us with the power of the big city, and while we’re here, we can not miss a jump in the famous Chinatown. For those visiting London for the first time, I’m sure it’s normal to feel like a little kid in a jungle, as the movement of people and the amount of open places can be intimidating. A very English coffee or tea can be a great option to assimilate and continue the tour.

The recommendation is to get to St James Park, from here, it is essential to make the journey through the great street The Mall, a place that the kings of England travel to reach Buckingham Palace. It is worth remembering that this is where hundreds of fans left roses and gifts when both Princess Diana of Wales and, recently, Queen Elizabeth II died.

For fans of royalty, a visit to this palace is sure to be an experience not to forget. From this point, we are just a few steps away from the historic monuments that represent the English capital, the Palace of Westminster, Big Ben and the London Eye, monuments that with their power and elegance dazzle everyone who sees them with very justified reasons.

BIg Ben London

Enjoy the sunset or the spectacle of lights in these attractions are other experiences that we can not miss.for the next day, the tour is easier, we will use the means of transport that is more comfortable for us to go to the Tower Bridge, better known as Tower Bridge. For many, this is where the London dream comes true and becomes a reality, because the majesty of the construction will make us kneel, even if the queen is not there.

In London, culture is one of its strong points, so museums and churches in the city will not be lacking. If in the end we have chosen Treehouse as our hotel, very close to here is also the Madame Tussauds London wax museum, where we can take a picture with the royalty or with Donald Donald Trump himself.
royalty or Donald Trump himself.

In the area there is also the museum and the statue of Sherlock Holmes or the Queen Mary Gardens. To close a night in style, Treehouse houses “The Nest” on top of its Madera restaurant, a rooftop bar worthy of a photo shoot with spectacular 360-degree views of the London skyline. At The Nest, the DJ’s tastefulness is a highlight and proves that the English do know how to have fun.

The Nest – Treehouse London

The variety in the menu also offers the option to dine or enjoy some great cocktails. Although we surely have not been left wanting to continue enjoying London, we already have the photos in the most emblematic places, and with everything we have seen we are surely already planning a return to this splendid city as royal and incredible as its own royalty.

The Paris 2024 Olympic Games are with no doubts the most exited evento coming soon, the French sports and tourism sector can’t wait to this, as the event is expected to attract hundreds of sports professionals and thousands of tourists from around the world.

Grégoire Benoit Co-founder of Edgar Suites in France assured One IN Magazine that the recovery of tourism in Europe is an indisputable reality, in addition to leaving behind the restrictions due to the pandemic, in countries with a great history such as France we see a very positive return of international mobility.

Yohann Fontaine – Suite in Paris

While in the past, tourists came to Paris only to see the beautiful Eiffel Tower, “love is no longer the only reason to visit the city, but also the immensity of cultural activities, the upcoming reopening of the Notre Dame Cathedral and the celebration of the 2024 Summer Olympics,” he said.

“Looking ahead to the arrival of the 2024 Olympic Games, we want to be sure to be prepared for the reception of all players and fans,” Benoit said. “Our suites are ideal for this type of event, as they are highly rated in professional profiles and people traveling in groups and family,” he detailed.

For this year, the company has launched the construction of more suites in other strategic sites in the country, in cities such as Lille (north) or Cannes (south).

“We have many expectations, in the medium term, our goal is to be present in the 10 most important French cities,” he explained that so far, Edgar Suites has around 200 buildings throughout the country, especially in Paris, but we also have constructions in cities such as Bordeaux.

Edgar Suites was created from the desire of three entrepreneurs to revisit the scheme of the hotel residence and the private rental apartment and take the best of both. The project, which was born a little over 5 years ago, has become the new concept of luxury accommodation that seeks to give another type of experience to tourists from all over the world.

The floors and buildings that make up the brand, spaces that were uninhabited and have been refurbished into high standard suites, with all the amenities for travelers looking for more than just a conventional stay.

As its founder explains, the idea of “urban recycling” arises from the great demand for work in our country, especially in Paris, where there were many homes or offices, but little by little – as a result of the new hybrid employment modalities – these have been vacated or abandoned. This has increased even more with the arrival of the pandemic and the subsequent rise of teleworking.

All accommodations are centrally located, strategic and surrounded by all amenities such as restaurants and stores. Its founders have called these works as “urban recycling”, since in addition to giving a second life to the buildings, they have implemented it with recycled items.

Likewise, Edgar Suites develops its sustainable bet in other branches of development in order to promote eco-conception. From the design to the operation of their hotel residences.

When rehabilitating offices or hotels at the end of their cycle, they ensure the improvement of the environmental performance of the spaces through eco-design (BREAM certification). They use environmentally friendly materials and resources, and we collaborate with platforms that provide us with second-hand goods.

They leave aside the use of plastics, each suite has a “kit” gift for travelers to use recyclable bags. Likewise, the rooms have accessories that can be washed and reused, while the amenities are sourced from ecological and local brands.

Mojitos and music to enjoy Marbella

La duración del verano es cuestión de decisión. Mientras en algunos puntos de nuestro país ya se siente la llegada del otoño, la Costa del Sol se aferra a esos rayos de sol que tanto nos alegran la vida.

Para quienes aún busquen vivir el verano a tope, el «Eden Pool Club» es la mejor opción, su especialidad y cóctel estrella «The pool party» te devuelve a agosto al primer sorbo. Nada mejor para acompañar al DJ que, desde el escenario en medio de la piscina, pincha su mejor lista de este verano.
