El Mercado de la Tapa o the Tapas Market
A culinary gathering that welcomes some of the best restaurant owners in Madrid, including Joaquín Felipe from Aspen; Mario Sandoval from Columbus; Paco Roncero from Estado Puro; and Juan Pozuelo from Vaca Nostra.
From Oct 23 until Oct 26 at the Palacio de Cibeles, Madrid downtown
Take advantage of this perfect opportunity to sample at affordable prices some of the great classic dishes of the capital’s gastronomic repertoire under the spectacular Glass Gallery inside Cibeles Palace.
This is just a temporary event. If you want to enjoy tapas in Madrid any time. Dont miss the Mercado de San Miguel at Plaza San Miguel, 2 minutes walking from Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol.
Another cool market to check-out is the Mercado de San Anton at Chueca hood. A great concept with a market on the 1st floor and, effectively, a very cool upmarket food court on the 2nd floor and a rooftop bar and two restaurants on the top. The stalls in the” food court” are fabulous and cook fresh tapas to order. Each specialist in its own thing – Italian, Greek, sushi etc.
