Eat like a Madrilean

This might sound very obvious but this is something that’s not easy to achieve all the time, and why? Because it’s hard to find a good place when looking online since you will probably will be directed to franchises and/or extremely popular and often crowded places. While most of the restaurants you’ll find around the city center will be great and give you a good Madrilean experience we think it’s our duty to recommend a couple of places and plates that will for sure be less crowded since summer is over and you may enjoy the terrace and some sunshine while you treat yourself to great tasty food.

Treasure hunt in El Rastro

El Rastro is Madrid’s most popular flea market for a lot of good reasons. With more than 400 years since its conception, it’s hard to imagine a Sunday morning in La Latina without it.
You never know what you’re going to find as you make your way through the crowded lanes. From souvenirs to clothes to antiques and so much more, there are countless treasures just waiting to be discovered. Wake up early and enjoy a coffee before setting out to leisurely browse the stalls. When you’ve had your fill of shopping, cap it all off with a well-deserved tapas lunch!
Location and Time: Every Sunday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.; Metro La Latina; Between Calle Embajadores and Calle Toledo
