From their cute market stall in the Vallehermoso Market, sister act Micaela and Agustina Geminiani have conquered the neighbourhood and the entire city. Not only do they have empanadas, there's also a full menu of authentic home-made Argentinian cuisine. The mixture of influences that defines Argentina's culinary tradition is brought to Madrid here and is served to you using the best seasonal products. There are nods to Spain, Italy and Peru in Graciana's select menu and also in its famous empanadas, of which there are an impressive 22 varieties. You will want to try the ham, pineapple and Torta del Casar cheese one, and the 'ají de gallina' (chicken with yellow peppers and spices), but you'll kick yourself if you leave without trying the one stuffed with wild mushrooms and truffle or the classic corn-based 'humita'. We do tend to linger on the empanadas here, but do leave room for the traditional locro stew made of beans, corn and meat, or for the spectacular 'milanesa' breaded cutlet.
