Food & Travel My Madrid


I have had my shared part of visitors since I moved to Madrid and I brought them all to this place: Mercado de San Miguel in the center of Madrid.

This is not a simple market. In fact, it is a beautiful building where you can enjoy both gastronomy and architecture at once! It’s characteristical architectural design is very beautiful with it’s iron, pane and natural light. Apart from being an axtravagant market, there is a possibility to visit exhibitions and concerts inside and you can also buy souvenirs, flowers and cosmetics inside the market if you want to by something more than food.

Here you have the opportunity to buy typical Spanish products and you can also try a variety of traditional Spanish dishes in the many stands around: gazpacho, tapas, sausages, fish, seafood and the mandatory: jamón and paella. There are also other alternatives in this market if you fancy something else, sushi, fruit stands with smoothies and much more. Thirsty visitors can find several stands with beverages to accompany your food, champagne, sangria, beer, wine…everything you can ask for.

I can warmly recommend you to pass by here if you are in Madrid. Each time I brought someone here, they have been very happy with the experience – and surely left with full stomachs. The market is located very central and nearby many tourist attractions, so make sure you stop by here for brunch/lunch/a glass of sangria before continuing your touristing!

Spain must be the country of tomatoes. Never have I seen tomatoes this colorful, in so many shapes and sizes!

Want to invite someone over for a snack but don’t know what to offer? Make the easiest starter ever, by only cutting up different tomatoes, any sort you like really but preferably in different shapes and colors to make the visual effects go wow! Pour over some virgin olive oil mixed with smashed garlic – 1 or 2 cloves after your taste (and how much you’d like or not to be kissed afterwards) and a little pinch of sea salt. If you want a slightly heavier meal, you can just add a slice or two of fresh toasted bread, BAM! Ready to impress both your company and your taste buds!

Que aproveche!
