Market
“Este mercado es llenisima de tiendas de todos los tipos de comida. Además es un mercado de toda la vida con un núcleo de tiendas familiares que han llevado 30, 40 y 50 años en el barrio. This darling market is a treasure! Since it´s recent reincarnation as a hip foodie market it has taken on a life of its own but the heart is the still the family run food stalls in the center of the market that have been there for between 30-50 years. Go for the delicious food, stay for the lovely people and friendly atmosphere. ”

Bar
“"LA NUEVA", in Arapiles, very close to the Glorieta de Quevedo, is one of my favorite free tapas bars in Madrid! It’s a VERY small bar with few tables, with all the flavor of authentic Madrid. I recommend you go for cañas or wines (which have a very good price) and have some of the tapas that are on top of the bar. Hungry for bigger portions (raciones)? Order their “Russian salad”. They are always at their best and the service is a tad slow, but they are nice and professional.”
