La Panera Rosa, Argentine comfort food in Madrid


Reading time 3 minutes

If, when you read La Panera Rosa, you thought of La Pantera Rosa, you are not very misguided. That same relationship made its creator, the Argentine Leonardo Iluane when he created this bistro coffee in Buenos Aires. From her kitchen she wanted the flavors she remembered from her childhood to come out, and the food with which anyone feels at home, what they call comfort food in the United States.

Breads and cakes, Argentine empanadas, freshly made food, always made there and up to date. And when he began to think about his happiest childhood, he always returned to the drawings of the Pink Panther. The association was instantaneous and, in addition, it had a perfect excuse to play in the decoration with a color that has gained followers thanks to social networks: pink.

Rosa are the walls of this new place that has been open in Madrid for a few months. The warmth of the decoration that accompanies the smell of freshly baked bread, crepes and waffles made at the moment, homemade pastries.

But there is much more to La Panera Rosa's letter. Inspired by the concept of American diners or French bistros, they are extensive (top-notch, intimidating) cards with many sweet or savory options available at any time of the day. You can have a hot waffle with sirloin and caramelized onion on top or one with nutella, chocolate ice cream and oreo cookie. You can eat some ravioli (the pasta they make themselves) of roasted vegetables or a piece of apple pie. Have breakfast at any time or eat all the time, the eternal dream.

There are also crepes, for their French inspiration, salty and sweet. And sandwiches, from the quinoa hamburger to salmon bagel. And, of course, lighter options with varied salads.

Leonardo Iluane opened the first La Panera Rosa in Buenos Aires in 2013 and now has several stores, all with the same success. Tails for their freshly made cakes are popular. And the same formula has been brought to Madrid, where uninterrupted kitchens and breakfast all day is increasingly in demand.

The menu is practically the same as the one offered in Argentina, with small adaptations to Madrid's taste. From its Buenos Aires origin, the steak Milanese (to vary a little bit of cachopo) and homemade empanadas in the salty world. In the sweet, of course, could not miss the alfajores or the pastry with dulce de leche.

Food to share. Blunt dishes, perfect for groups. For a snack-dinner, another concept to claim. Especially, now that the good weather arrives and, in addition to being able to enjoy it in its bright and pink room, it can be done on its large and prepared terrace.
