Lonely Planet review
Snug yet loud, a favourite of Madrid’s hip young crowd yet utterly unpretentious, La Musa is all about designer decor, lounge music on the sound system and food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) that will live long in the memory and is always fun and filled with flavour. The menu is divided into three types of tapas – hot, cold and BBQ; among the hot varieties is the fantastic jabalí con ali-oli de miel y sobrasada (wild boar with honey mayonnaise and sobrasada – a soft, mildly spicy sausage from Mallorca). It doesn’t take reservations, so sidle up to the bar, add your name to the waiting list and soak up the ambient buzz of Malasaña at its best. If you don’t fancy waiting, try the sister restaurant nearby, Ojalá Awareness Club .
