Mercado de San Miguel, an authentic grocery shopping market, is a good choice to taste a good variety of Spanish Tapas combined with wine.

Tapas, one of the most characteristic items of the Spanish gastronomy, are very varied. There are cold tapas, such as olives or cheese, or hot, like garlic shrimp ot croquettes. The traditional ones in Madrid are: Spanish omelette (number one par excellence), ham, cheese, olives, patatas bravas, padrón peppers, croquettes, garlic shrimp, and chorizo.

Mercado de San Miguel, an authentic grocery shopping market, is a good choice to taste a good variety of Spanish Tapas combined with wine.

Opened in 1860, the tavern "Casa Labra" has delicious tapas. This is a very traditional tapas bar in the center of Madrid where we highly recommend to try the house specialty: "soldaditos de pavía". "La Casa del Abuelo" not only offers great tapas, but the atmosphere of Madrid's authentic taverns. And if, in addition to the great food you want to experience a show, and enjoy one of the most avant-garde spaces in Madrid, swing by calle de Goya and visit Platea Madrid. A hidden gem at first difficult to find but amazing and original space to discover different sorts of tasty food.

It is so nice to sit down in a terrace and have some tapas in Madrid… Honestly one of the best plans to do in the city with friends is to enjoy a cold beer and some tapas
