I particularely liked the Casa Parrondo Restaurante and Sidreria in Madrid. I haven’t been to the restaurant, but the sidreria is the tapas bar and it also has a nice, small restaurant in the back room. The restaurante and sidreria are across the street from each other. The address is: Trujillos, 4 y 9 (junto a la Plaza Descalzas), 28013 Madrid. Tel. 915-226-234 — 915-227-987. Calle de Trujillos is approximately 4 or 5 cuadras (blocks) from the Opera metro stop. I believe that the sign above the door to the sidreria reads: Luarca Sidreria. The Luarca Sidreria is on the west side of Calle de Trujillos, the Casa Parrondo Restaurante on the east side of Calle de Trujillos (the establishments are across the street from each other).

The food is excellent, the sangria was bountiful and the owner and waiters were good for many laughs.

If you’ve not been before you will be absolutely astounded by the number of cafes, bars and restuaurants. Not to mention how late they stay open! Truly the food and drink capital of Europe.

Maybe try the Rastro on Sunday for your leather goods, though I’m not sure if that time of year it will be open. Street after street of stalls and tables, some of it junk, some of it stolen, but always something to catch your eye.

On our second visit a couple months ago we fell in love with a tapas place calle, Los Gatos, just a 2-minute walk from the Prado at Calle de Jesus 2 on your way towards the Huertas neighbourhood. The interior is a mind-boggling assortment of bullfighting memoribilia, cheeky murals, gilt mirrors, all sorts. It’s a ‘pick and point’ place, everything is freshly made and waiting in glass cabinets on the bar, so no menu decoder required. Staff should greet you, find you a place to stand comfortably and keep your glass topped up as you eat. Very cheap too (except for the hand-sliced ham which was 18 euros for a huge plate of the most delicious ham we’ve ever had, with crackers and free generous top-ups of our beer).

Huertas attracts all the tourists, you’ll see English menus everywhere and touts at the doors trying to entice you in. Carry on past Plaza Mayor and down Calle Cava Baja, dozens of eateries line the streets here, all full of locals. You cannot go wrong just meandering along, having a drink here, a bite to eat there, then falling into a smoke-filled flamenco place at 2am called La Solea at Cava Baja 34. WE LOVE MADRID. And you will too.
