Full description
Treat your taste buds with 10 amazing local tastings and enjoy eating like a local. Discover the city’s history through its authentic bites and explore its hip areas, stopping at some of the city's biggest highlights as you make your way through the tour. Begin your food journey at Mercado San Anton, a local market located in the lively neighborhood of Chueca. The market is popular among locals and it’s full of stalls selling top quality products. After strolling through the local market, it's time to kick-start your appetite. Try the first tastings, a sobrasada con picos (raw cured sausage) and an authentic croqueta. Move on to the Salmorejo, a traditional tomato dish from the South of Spain, and enjoy the view over the market.  In this hip area, a lot of cool places are popping up next to authentic local bars, creating a unique vibe. Along the way, enter a few places, hand-picked by your guide just for you. Stand just like the locals do while enjoying some tapas, a traditional cheese from La Mancha region and the delicious Spanish empanada. Your local guide will tell you everything about the culinary aspects of Madrid and the history behind the local family-run bars. Make room for something sweet. Have a rosquilla, an old pastry which has its own old traditional recipes. This Spanish pastry has become an icon of the sweet gastronomy of the city. Let’s not forget about the yummy Spanish tortilla, an omelette made with eggs and potatoes. Cap off your experience at a cool hip bar where the passion for bikes is mixed with the passion for good drinks. Impress your taste buds with a tasting of Artesano vermut while enjoying the cozy atmosphere. It’s time to say goodbye to your local guide but not before you ask for recommendations for your stay.

The guide was 5 minutes late ... We were led to areas that were similar to fast food - including rolls filled with salami - we cannot rate this as an experience! - Potato salad and rice plates of very simple quality ... The expected food tastings were from below average quality and do not meet the expectations of Madrid cuisine ... The drinks were also very poor with beer and vermouth ... The guide was not a 'local' - thus the contractual basis was not met - the planned 10 tastings were exhausted at 7 —— and the 3 hour tour ended after 1.5 hours. Quite frankly - a waste of time and money ——. We would very much appreciate it / if you would comment on this clear criticism Sincerely
