A weekend in Madrid is enough to discover its beauties; picturesque streets, art museums, creative street signs, the sunshine and Spanish food.
What did I enjoy the most out of all these? Definitely the FOOD! So yes, the title of this post could be ‘where to eat in Madrid’.
If you are a food lover, a weekend in Madrid will satisfy your taste buds. Apart from the traditional well known Spanish dishes, Madrid offers a lot of alternative food combinations and choices.
Spend an afternoon at San Miguel Market or Mercado de San Miguel in Spanish. It is touristy but this doesn’t make it less interesting.
After a long museum visit at Prado you will definitely feel thirsty so try a freshly squeezed juice at Faborit fresh bar.
Then head to Navaja restaurant for an evening out. The place is relaxed and ideal to enjoy a few drinks and some Spanish food with a Peruvian touch. The result is super delicious!
If you feel like trying tapas but with a Japanese twist, head to Yakitoro. Interesting combinations such as tomato with ginger, smoked sardines with Iberian bacon or tuna tataki will fascinate you and make you want to go back!
Of course it is not all about food. There are drinks too! Try some famous gin & tonic on a roof terrace, or on a local square.
Mingle with Spanish people; they know to seize each day! You will meet them in local stores, little book shops, cute flower shops and on every park bench enjoying the sun!
