We'll explore a few tapas bars at Salamanca neighborhood, the place to avoid touristic traps and enjoy a trendy area where local residents gather & socialize. The route will start at my favorite spot in Madrid for Spanish Omelet (Tortilla de Patatas). We'll then head towards our next bar where we'll taste flavorful tapas like the Madrileño-style Ropa Vieja. A Basque cuisine tavern will be next, to try deliciously tender artichokes hearts, famous in the area by its complex elaboration and a kept secretly recipe. We'll next visit an elegant restaurant known by being pioneer in the introduction of miniature Donostian-style fine dining in the neighborhood. We'll be eating some tasty bites like fried Chistorra from Navarre (Chistorra de Navarra), at a well-stocked tapas restaurant, famous by using top-quality ingredients and an excellent customer service. We'll enjoy a drink at each bar (beer / wine / soft drink) to help digesting the tapas :-) Our final stop will be at a reference point for gastronomy but also known by its live entertainment. Galleries with tapas bars, patisseries, and of course, cocktails will be on hand for those who want to carry on with the evening :-)

Easy-going Spaniard who enjoys traveling, getting to experience new cultures & meeting new people. Everyone of us has a relationship with food, food can be art, food has science, everyone is a food critic, food is just so magical and to supply us with so many options to live it, then we as foodies are no different than anyone, we just learned a way to enjoy it... Being an Airbnb host, I've shared this experience for years and, since people seem to love my informal approach to food & drinks, why not sharing it with others? :-) Contact me for a different time schedule request.
Salamanca neighborhood is the place to avoid touristic traps and to enjoy a local atmosphere with nice restaurants and charming crowds that gathers together after work on week days, or over the weekends!
Comfy clothing/shoes since we’ll be visiting a few bars. This is an eating & sharing experience trying different things, eating small bites and sharing plates as we, 'Madrileños', do in Madrid :-)
