Previously I have talked about my food experiences at the Mercado de San Miguel. It is tough to top the food choices at the mercado but we were determined to find more good food.
For a tapas crawl experience, our guide book recommended we visit the restaurants of Calle Cava Baja in Madrid.
We started in the early evening down the street whereas most locals do not go out until after 9. We were able to try some places out before they got crowded. We made our way down the street and sampled as much food and beverages as we could for the night.
It happened to be St Patrick’s day. I caught this festive guy on a cell phone break.
This place was packed everytime we walked by.
Albóndigas (meatballs and sauce) served with potatoes.
This was pretty good and I while I am still not 100% sure what it is, the waitress called them little fish.
We spent some time sitting at the bar at La Perejila. They have some nice vermouth and great tapas.
Love me some Spanish vermut!!!
The night proved to be a success. I advise anyone who can to visit Madrid and do a tapas crawl. Your mouth will not regret it!
