“Discover Madrid like a local with traditional cuisine”

POSTED ON 08.01.2019

To encounter the real soul of Madrid, the castiza of Madrid, we suggest starting with a gastronomic adventure!

Have you ever thought about how much you can learn about a country through its food? What one eats, where they do, and even with who. There are so many subtleties that define a culture! To encounter the real soul of Madrid, the castiza of Madrid, we suggest starting with a gastronomic adventure! So today, let's take a culinary journey to get to know Madrid... as a local.

 

Here are our suggestions for an authentic, less touristy tasting trip through Madrid

 

Bocadillo de Calamares in Plaza Mayor

The fried calamari sandwich! We suggest hitting up Cervecería La Campana, one of the great classics of the city. Wash it down with a beer– ¡una caña, por favor!– and maybe some giant green olives on the side. Just around the corner from here you'll find yourself in the gorgeous Plaza Mayor (main square) that was constructed during Filippo III's reign (1580-1619) as the central square for the city.

 

Tortilla in La Latina neighborhood

Actually, “tortilla” isn't sufficient to describe it. “Tortilla de patatas con cebola caramelizada” would be the best way to call it. A Spanish egg tortilla with potatoes and caramelized onions. We recommend going to Juana La Loca, in the Latin quarter. Divine!!! Once there, enjoy the Spanish lifestyle on a Sunday afternoon in the adjacent streets. Starting at noon!

 

Vermouth de grifo with Spanish olives at Mercado San Miguel

Some places are included in every guide because they're simply unmissable. One of these is Mercado San Miguel, probably the most famous of all of Madrid's markets. It's a lively place teeming with people, where you should absolutely try many kinds of olives with an amazing vermouth, all made in Spain, among the Spanish delicacies you must taste!

 

Patatas Bravas all over the city!

Literally everywhere, given its presence in most bars. It's a plate of diced potatoes served with a warm, spicy tomato salsa. It's perfect with a beer before lunch, or for lunch itself. As you probably know, it's the Spanish way to have lunch later than when most Europeans do. Do you want a plate full of potatoes at 4 in the afternoon? Madrid is the place for you.

 

Enjoy your stay in Madrid and let us know what your favorite food is! Don't forget to use our hashtag #toratoratravel to show us the best pictures you took and to be featured on our web site.

 

Make us jealous with the colorful, delicious dishes of Spanish cuisine!
