Welcome to Madrid’s first pork bistro! Situated on a quiet street on Calle Lagasca, the newly opened La Porcinería is a creative tribute to cerdo in all its culinary glory.

The decor is light and casual, with pig cartoons and quotes sprinkled all around. You’re welcomed into the street-level entrance with a few high tables and an open bar. Downstairs you’ll find a cozy dining room where we had dinner on a Tuesday night.

All dishes on the menu contain pork, as you can imagine, with only one exception (that we didn’t try). There’s a nice range of items to choose from – some Asian inspired, others more traditional, and a few surprises in the mix. Our server, Alex, recommended we start off with a bottle of red and had us sample their signature starters and mains.

First up was the Thai-style pork bombón, so satisfying to cut into and find tender strips of pork inside with a mix of flavors and textures.

Then came a real treat for both the eyes and tastebuds – fried artichokes with fine strips of pancetta. First Alex topped it with freshly shaved foie and then proceeded to flambé it at the table.

We also had a lagarto ibérico (a special cut of Iberian pork) served on top of a rich, velvety layer of yuca purée with white truffle. If you’re into truffle, this is your dish.

We rounded off the savory part of our meal with the Sicilian-style Iberian burger that was topped with provolone cheese and grilled onions, and came with a side of homemade fries.

Feeling completely satisfied and not overly stuffed, we couldn’t have asked for a better pork-filled experience! That is, until dessert came.

The chocolate salami cake with ice cream was the perfect finish – don’t worry, the only nod to pork in this dish was the fun presentation. After devouring every bite, we slowly finished off the delicious bottle of red. I don’t remember what type of wine it was, but it came recommended by Alex as a house special that night. So just make sure to ask your server for a suggestion!

So pork fans, La Porcinería should definitely be on your list.
