Arallo, Galician fusion cuisine

Arallo, Galician fusion cuisine

Arallo is a an original and informal restaurant led by the chef, Iván Domínguez. This reaturant offers Galician dishes splashed with Asian and American touches. You can find the restaurant next to Gran Via in Madrid.

A from Alborada (essential Michenine starred restaurant in A Coruña), A from Alabaster (sublime haute cuisine room at the back of the Retiro park in Madrid), A from Anima (cooler and formalist dining in the most posh Madrid) and, since last summer, A from Arallo Taberna in the Galician capital and finally at Calle de la Reina in Madrid.

In Arallo they like to talk about contaminated cuisine. Contaminated cuisine is about influences, flavors, textures ...Because one day they took a suitcase and traveled all over the world. And when they returned, they brought good ideas. Today we they mix their Atlantic origin with the best of the world. What they do is a surprising fusion. It's the feeling to enter through the door and be shaken by one of their waves.

Taste, share and experiment. And praise the taste, is the reason you come to this place.

Once you enter in Arallo, the restaurant is presided by a long bar with stools for 24 people, from where the stove can be seen directly, it has an industrial style décor, in which diners can savour informal fusion dishes designed to share, such as the sweet and spicy queen scallops, horse mackerel tartar with tomato-chilli soup or avocado with galo pibil and corn tortillas or salt-cured hake nigiri croquette, among others.

With a very modern decoration, it is a very small restaurant, focused on a one big table with view to the cookers. The food is south asian-spanish fusion like. Product is tasty and the team is very gently.

In Arallo, the main room also has a small area with high and low tables, and an area that functions as a reserved area.

Arallo does not offer desserts, coffe nor previous reservations. The cooks are confused with the waiters, all the same with hats, black shirts, beards and tattoos. This are the rules of Arallo Taberna, already part of a new generation of chefs and proposals that seduce with self-confidence and dishes full of positive energy. Another (contaminated) bar.

Exceptional food, increadible tasty super great presentation. Flavors are just unbelievable and the staff amazing! The place to go to have a brilliant experience!

Accessibility
The access to Arallo is barrier free. The restaurant features adapted restrooms and round tables at wheelchair level.

Able Thrive. Vivir bien con una discapacidad

¿Cuál es el objetivo de Able Thrive ? Transformar la manera en que las personas con discapacidad se comunican en una comunidad, innovando en la forma con la que las personas se comunican a través de una red de apoyo generada por los propios usuarios. Able Thrive en inglés significa "Capaz de prosperar ó mejorar"".

Able Thrive es una startup americana que ayuda a las personas con discapacidad y sus familias para superar los desafíos y los estereotipos negativos, al proporcionar una red de apoyo de forma crowdsourced - a través de vídeos e información. Con este recurso gratuito y accesible basado en las comunidades, pueden llegar hasta las zonas geográficas más aisladas. Su plataforma aprovecha la tecnología para filtrar y clasificar los contenidos, detalles sobre los usuarios y sus intereses, desde tareas básicas, hasta deporte adaptado, etc. Able Thrive conecta a los usuarios en un modelo de aprendizaje -peer to peer, para poder acelerar transitando por el camino y poder vivir bien con una discapacidad. Los usuarios intercambian experiencias e innovaciones a través de este recurso que está en constante evolución, que es personalizable y que une a una comunidad global redefiendo lo que supone vivir con una discapacidad.

Es muy difícil para las personas encontrar información que pueda cambiar la vida de una familia cuando hay uno de sus miembros con discapacidad. En Able Thrive se han propuesto hacer el viaje más fácil para todos y abrir las puertas de la colaboración, donde todo el mundo tiene la oportunidad de mejorar su calidad de vida.

Brittany Martin es la fundadora y directora ejecutiva de Able Thrive . Hace unos años, su padre tuvo un terrible accidente y se quedó en silla de ruedas. Brittany aprendió de otras familias con problemas similares y esto ayudó a ella y a su familia a adaptarse a esta nueva situación. Comprendió que usando la tecnología, podría replicar este tipo de apoyo a muchas otras familias, para todo tipo de discapacidades y a nivel mundial. Brittany ha sido voluntaria en comunidades de personas con discapacidad en China y África. También es cofundadora de SPINALpedia.com, un recurso piloto al servicio de la comunidad de parálisis, como un proyecto paralelo durante siete años. Su trabajo se ha publicado en el Huffington Post y en diferentes revistas de discapacidad. En 2013, dejó su trabajo como profesora y entrenadora para dedicarse a unir y potenciar una comunidad mundial de discapacidad.

Desde Accessible Madrid , siendo socios colaboradores en España de Able Thrive, os invitamos a compartir vuestras experiencias con ellos. ¡Enviadles un mensaje! Les encantaría oír todo lo que tengas que decir sobre cómo te pueden ayudar en tu día a día. Ten en cuenta que son un una startup (una empresa muy joven y con pocos recursos), por lo que necesitan de tu ayuda para reconocer errores, recabar información y mejorar lo más rápido posible.

Able Thrive. Live well with a disability

What is Able Thrive's idea? Transform the way people with disabilities live by connecting communities on a user-generated information support network.

Able Thrive empowers people with disabilities and their families to overcome challenges and negative stereotypes by providing a support network of crowdsourced how-to videos and information. With this free and accessible community-based resource, they reach even the most isolated geographic areas. Their platform leverages technology to filter and sort content by user details and interests - everything from basic tasks to adapted sports - connecting users in a peer-to-peer learning model that accelerates the path to living well with a disability. Users exchange experiences and innovations in an ever-evolving, customizable resource that unites a global community and redefines living with a disability.

It is too difficult for people to find information that can be life changing for a family facing a disability. They want to make the journey easier and open the doors of collaboration, so everyone has a chance to thrive.

Brittany Martin is the founder and executive director of Able Thrive . After her father was paralyzed in a car accident, Brittany saw that learning from others facing similar challenges helped her family adapt to their situation, and she envisioned using technology to replicate such support globally for all disabilities. Brittany has also volunteered with disability communities in China and Africa, giving her a sense of the common struggles for people with disabilities across geographic areas. Brittany co-founded and developed SPINALpedia.com, a pilot resource serving the paralysis community, as a side project for seven years, publishing her work in Huffington Post and in disability magazines. In 2013, she left her job as a teacher and coach to devote herself to uniting and empowering a global disability community.

From Accessible Madrid , being partners of Able Thrive in Spain, we invite you to share your experiences with them. Send them a message! They’d love to hear anything you have to say on how they can better serve you. Keep in mind they’re a startup, so they need your help to catch errors, gather feedback and improve as quickly as possible.

Accessible Spanish FAM Trip

At Accessible Madrid we are travel specialists who understand the set backs of a physical condition in achieving travel dreams. We organize FAM Trips throughout Spain showcasing the accessibility in different destinations, specifically in Madrid and the neighboring area. FAM Trip is a short name for "Familiarisation Trip". Our FAM trips are extremely well organised so that agents and governments have the opportunity to get involved with procedures and the best practices for accessible tourism, whilst also taking in the sights and attractions of the region in which they are staying.

The institutions also benefit from FAM trips focused on Accessible Tourism as agents get a lot more out of a visit than a website. Travel Agents can ask questions, taste the lunch or dinner options that their clients would experience, meet the local representatives at accessible tourism public institutions, do specific training on accessible tourism in good practices and just generally take in every little detail. The agents learn on these kind of trips that accessibility means bearing in mind the needs of the whole population, not just people with disabilities but families with children, carrying trolleys, bags, and experiencing special needs at different moments of life.

All this will enable travel agents from other countries to see firsthand exactly what goes on and giving them a genuine feel for the place so you can recommend it to your customers.

Spain welcomes over 68 million international tourists a year and tourist activity accounts for 11% of GDP. The current tourism trends observed an increasingly sophisticated system of supply and demand with the presence of older tourists and an increasing demand for quality. Madrid is a top tourist destination welcoming more than 11 million visitors a year. The city offers everything from art and culture to leisure and sports, as well as restaurants, shops and green spaces. There are so many places to go, so many things to do… And the city continues to improve its accessibility provisions so that all visitors can make the most of their trip to the Spanish capital.

How do our Accessible FAM Trips work?
Usually these trips last for 4 or 5 days depending usually on your needs and interests and the size of the group visiting. We take care of the transfers, accommodation, cultural visits, training, meetings with accessible tourism representatives (e.g. public institutions and wheelchair user associations), press releases, restaurants, etc.

For agents focusing on accessible tourism starting out, fam trips are one of the best ways to become more proficient in the field. Not only do fam trips allow destination and vendor training, but also broadens the view of the ins and outs of traveling in general. The more an agent travels, the more knowledgeable they gain about the travel industry. Early on, it is a perfect opportunity for an agent to begin learning about any specialty interest they want to become involved in selling, so learning can be geared toward clients with specific mobility requirements.

Many lasting relationships have been built between agents and governments as a result of these FAM trips focussed on Accessible Tourism.

If you are interested in organising an Accessible Spanish FAM Trip do not hesitate to contact us at info@accessiblemadrid.com or +34915701682. We will be happy to organise your FAM trip in due detail.

Greenways4All. EU project.

Vías Verdes (literally, "green-ways") are old disused railway lines that have been recovered and reconditioned for use by walkers and cyclists. Exploring them is a different, enjoyable and environmentally friendly way of getting to know Spain, its culture and its landscapes. This is an alternative ideal for all ages, that respects the environment and brings together sport and the great outdoors. Sounds good? .

When the trains stopped rolling over these tracks once and for all, they fell into disrepair and were forgotten. The old lines have now lost their rails, and what was once the domain of wagons and locomotives is the realm of cyclists, walkers and day-trippers. There are 2,400 kilometres of Vía Verde all over Spain. They are easy to get to, and being flat and even, provide no technical difficulties - ideal for all kinds of people: adults, children, and the elderly and disabled too.

On July 1, 2016 the Greenways4All European project will start. This project will be coordinated by the FFE, which aims to improve accessibility around the greenways, the quality of tourism -oriented people with disabilities and dissemination of these resources and infrastructure for all.

Accessible Madrid will participate in the Greenways4all project sponsorized by the EU.

Under the title "Accessible Tourism on European Greenways: Greenways For All" and whose acronym is GW4ALL, the aim of this project is to move toward the creation of accessible tourism products based on greenways.

This project aims to move towards a product that meets the value chain of accessibility advancing from the accessible route to travel or accessible experience. Thus, accessibility is the common element to all resources that integrate the tourism product: walking the greenway, eat in restaurants in the area, stay in the nearby vicinity to the greenway, visit museums or do some shopping, among others options.

During the 18 months that the project will be designed at least 2 fully accessible tourism products. One, in the Via Verde de la Sierra (Cadiz-Seville) and another in the Ecopista / Via Verde do Dao (Viseu. Portugal). To do this, the project includes different stages as a methodology for implementing accessible greenways; databases accessible resources in these two territories; workshop and technical visits; local accessibility pacts between agents of the territory and public-private- helping both parties collaboration; and finally the design of offers and affordable products.

In addition, the project will include training in accessible tourism for companies and ratings by groups with different special needs products designed (testing groups). So it will move from the "accessible resource" to "accessible product."

Collaterally with this project will deepen the consolidation of the image of "European Greenways" brand as environmentally sustainable tourism and accessible destinations, as elements of economic revitalization in rural areas.

This work plan will be developed by a consortium of nine partners from Spain and Portugal, with the European dimension guaranteed by the presence as a partner of the European Greenways Association, and in the intervening four SMEs specialized in accessible tourism and experiential.

This project, funded 75% by the COSME Programme, EASME Agency (Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) of the European Union for the Competitiveness of SMEs has a total budget of 166.148,60 €, and an execution period of 18 months.

The 9 members of the consortium from 2 countries developing this project are:
- Fundación de los Ferrocarriles Españoles (coordinador del proyecto) ES. www.viasverdes.com
- Plataforma Representativa Estatal de Discapacitados Físicos. ES. www.predif.org

Wheelchair Rentals in Madrid

The reasons for needing to use a wheelchair are many. It could be due to a temporary disability or medical condition or some other handicap or more permanent disability. Whatever the reason, it will certainly involve loss of mobility to a larger or lesser degree.

At Accessible Madrid we are a leading mobility specialist provider aiming to help and delight our customers with products and services that meet and even exceed their expectations.

Renting a wheelchair with Accessible Madrid couldn't be easier. Book online or call us at +34915701682 to arrange wheelchair rental at your destination in Madrid. Accessible Madrid can deliver the wheelchair to your hotel or residence - whatever will be most convenient for you.

What Kind of Wheelchairs Does Accessible Madrid Rent?
We are happy to provide our customers with reduced mobility with a range of wheelchairs to fit their needs including Motorized or Power/Electric Wheelchairs, Standard Wheelchairs, Heavy Duty Wheelchairs, Transport Chairs and Lightweight Folding Adaptive Stroller for children. Availability of equipment can vary. Please check online or call us at +34915701682 to make sure we can accommodate your needs ahead of time.

What Are Manual Wheelchairs?
Manual wheelchairs are a simple and lightweight mobility solution that are ideal in many scenarios. They are highly maneuverable and very easily transported. They can be folded down to fit into the trunk of virtually any size vehicle.

The first thing you need to know when it comes to choose your wheelchair is to ask yourself if you need a Standard Wheelchair or a Transport wheelchair. A Standard wheelchair is distinguished by the two large wheels in the back and have smaller “caster” wheels in the front, allowing the sitter to self propel. Transport or Travel wheelchairs cannot be propelled by the sitter only by a companion (all four wheels are the smaller “caster” type). They tend to be lighter to lift and can fold into a tighter space.

Most manual wheelchairs have a maximum weight capacity of 250 lbs. Accessible Madrid can also offer heavy duty models with weight capacities of up to 450 lbs.

The lighter the wheelchair, the easier it is for a user to push uphill and the easier it is for a companion to lift up stairs or place in a car trunk. We have light transport wheelchairs that weigh 14 lbs.

Everybody fits within a certain size group. Because wheel chairs are available with different seat widths you should find a size to suit you. It is critical that the seat be the right size, to ensure the proper comfort and support needed, especially if you have to spend long periods each day in your wheel chair. The degree of well being your wheelchair can provide is dependent on it being the correct size. For the larger (and heavier) person, seat width is even more important. There can be nothing worse than being 'scrunched up' in a wheel chair, especially in a warm humid climate.

Which type/size of wheelchair do I need?

Lightweight: Our standard range of wheelchairs. Available in self-propel or transit models for general use. Total chair weights typically range between 12-16kg in this category. These weights can be reduced further by removing leg rests and in many cases the rear wheels for transporting. Normally available in either 16” (41cm) or 18” (46cm) seat widths.

Ultra Lightweight: These wheelchairs are made from very lightweight aluminium in both self-propel or transit models. Total chair weights typically range between 6-13kg in this category. These weights can be reduced further by removing leg rests and in many cases the rear wheels for transporting. Lighter to propel and much easier to transport. Normally available in either 16” (41cm) or 18” (46cm) seat widths.

Heavy-Duty: These models are designed for larger or Bariatric users. They offer wider seat sizes from 20”-24” (51-61cm) and increased weight capacities from 160-325kg. Total chair weights typically range between 15-27kg in this category

Manual wheelchairs are self-propelled, meaning they require human power in order to move. Depending on user preference and capability, the manual chair can be pushed by the person riding in the chair or by a companion. The outer rims on the large rear wheels are made for gripping easily with your hands. They also have adjustable foot rests which provide a comfortable riding level for most riders. They can also be swiveled up to allow the rider to plant their feet firmly on the ground.

Manual wheelchairs are light weight, flexible yet sturdy at the same time. Because they are manual, they are much lighter than a powered option and can be easily stored. To collapse the chair, simply pull up on the flexible seat and press the arm rests together.

Accessible Madrid can offer Lightweight Folding Adaptive Stroller rentals that are a tried and truth method of transporting children safely and securely, and when the young person in your care has special needs, these devices become indispensable.

What Are Motorized or Power/Electric Wheelchairs?
A motorized wheelchair, powerchair, electric wheelchair or electric-powered wheelchair (EPW) is a wheelchair that is propelled by means of an electric motor rather than manual power. Motorized wheelchairs are useful for those unable to propel a manual wheelchair or who may need to use a wheelchair for distances or over terrain which would be fatiguing in a manual wheelchair. They may also be used not just by people with 'traditional' mobility impairments, but also by people with cardiovascular and fatigue based conditions.

Powerchairs offer the best maneuverability in small spaces because of their short wheel base. Our models are foldable for ease of transport but we recommend a minivan or SUV with a removable third row for the most ideal mode of transportation.

The way you will control your powerchair is with the joystick located on the armrest. Our models offer left or right handed controls depending on your preference. The powerchair will break automatically when the joystick is released back to the center position providing added security to the driver.

A portable motorized wheelchair can be difficult to find and carry. With large motors and frames, these chairs don’t always lend themselves to convenient transport. That’s why we’ve put together a selection of what we believe to be the most cartable motorized wheelchairs available.

We offer lightweight and folding powerchairs with a total weight of only 50 pounds, but being capable of handling passengers weighing up to 230 pounds. You will be amazed at how effortless it is to quickly and easily fold this chair to a compact size.... Unfolding is just as easy! They are extremely durable and you will enjoy every minute of driving it.

Accessible Madrid also offers Folding Frame Electric Wheelchair rentals. They are also lightweight and highly durable. Easily foldable battery bracket allows for improved portability. Lightweight and foldable for easy handling, storage and transportation.

We offer a full selection of mobility supplies. Specifically for wheelchairs we can offer accessories such as portable ramps for wheelchairs or mobility socoters.

DecorAccion 2016

the Barrio de Las Letras (Literary Quarter) hosts Decoracción 2016 a new edition of Madrid’s large outdoor interior design fair. This year the common theme linking the different projects together is the sun, understood not only as a source of inspiration but also as a vital element in decoration. Over one hundred interventions will be featured in establishments, window displays and façades around the neighbourhood, which will also host antiques markets and pop-up accessories shops.

Throughout the seven days, the Barrio de Las Letras (Literary Quarter) becomes a showcase for the world of decoration. This is an event that features the sector’s most surprising innovations and boasts installations, conferences, theatre, concerts and more than the odd culinary event.

Interior designers, antique dealers and gallery owners take over the streets of this neighbourhood which was home to great writers during the 16th and 17th centuries (Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Tirso de Molina or Calderón de la Barca, among others).

Installations, markets and guided visits through the galleries fill one of the city’s most emblematic areas with art, design and culture. Restaurants and hotels also participate in this interior design festival, decorating their windows or offering themed menus.

Calle de la Alameda will transform into a picturesque Street of Fabrics, while the recently restored Santoña Palace, located in Calle de las Huertas, will be the venue for multiple activities, including debates, workshops, meetings with specialised bloggers and courses.

To mark the 5th centenary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, The Prado Museum is organising what will be the exhibition of the year, sponsored by the BBVA Foundation. 65 works from the Madrid art gallery’s own collection and others from leading museums worldwide will offer a unique opportunity to find out more about this great artist.

The works on display include the main triptychs created by Bosch, such as The Garden of the Earthly Delights or The Adoration of the Magi, currently being restored, as well as the outstanding Triptych of the Temptations of St. Anthony on loan from the Antiga Art Museum in Lisbon. Other paintings come from the Albertina and Kunsthistorisches Museums, Vienna Museum, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery in Washington, the Louvre in Paris or the Polo Museale del Veneto in Venice, among others.

The exhibition will be divided into five sections according to themes and a sixth section will display his drawings. Of the selected works, 25 were painted by Bosch, 9 were made at his workshop and the rest are from other painters who illustrate the period.

As a complement, paintings, miniatures, drawings, wood-cuttings or engravings with burin, depicting some of the topics addressed by the painter, such as hell or sins, will also be included so that the visitor can understand the environment in which the paintings of this great Dutch artist came from.
