Experiencing the Local Food Scene in Madrid
Madrid is known for its wonderful food scene and one of the best ways to experience it is at one of the many markets in the city. If you find yourself in Madrid on business make sure to visit the Mercado San Miguel. This market is world famous and remains open until midnight most of the week, except Thursday through Saturday when its open until 2 am. Whether you are looking for lunch, dinner or a late night snack head to Mercado San Miguel to try a selection of their tapas offered at the many stands throughout the marketplace.
Make sure to try the fried seafood, artisanal burrata, and seared, smoky Padron peppers. There are many food stalls to choose from so this is an easy, great option if you’re dining with a group of colleagues with varied dietary needs.
Enjoy a glass of wine, a little snack or an entire meal all within the market. If you’re interested in a more traditional restaurant experience visit Casa Alberto, a Madrid institution that has been open nearly 200 years. This popular meeting spot has been a favorite among the city’s writers and bullfighters through the years. They offer traditional tapas, as well as some more avant-garde dishes and vermouth on tap. A perfect place to get a true taste of Madrid.
