What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Puerta del Sol, 28013 Madrid Spain

After reverently sipping a cava inside a culinary cathedral, you follow your guide to a "museum of flavours", where you pay homage to the "lust for meat". The celebrated exhibits hang densely packed from the ceiling, waiting for the day when they are manually cut into paper-thin slices by the master cutter with his razor-sharp knife. You mingle with the crowd of blue and white-collar workers and other visitors who all congregate to marvel at this art of cutting, and to sample the cured products from the Spanish meseta in a lively atmosphere.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Barrio de Las Letras, Plaza de las Cortes, 28014 Madrid Spain

Nibble fresh gambas al abuelo – grandpa-style prawns, savor the most typical tapa starters and taste amazing local wines at Vincentes Deli, where aristocrats and bohemians once shopped.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Mercado de Anton Martin, Calle Santa Isabel 5, 28012 Madrid Spain

You can still find it here: a typical covered market hall with small stands and fresh produce, where the locals still shop for their everyday needs. Just around the corner, long queues form in front of Esther and Susana’s simple stall. At their must-visit destination for insiders, they prepare typical home-cooked Spanish meals based on family recipes, arousing memories of childhood and lunch at home for numerous Madrilenians. Your taste buds, too, will be delighted by this Spanish comfort food.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: La Latina, Madrid Spain

Enjoy the full flavors of an original cocido madrileño stew at a century-old tavern overlooked by a matador’s trophy bull’s head, followed by another culinaric gem, where countless celebrities have already enjoyed the simple traditional country cooking. Here, many guests continue to wipe the last droplet off their plates with bread, just like in the past. Surrounded by photos of the stars and starlets who have visited the family-run business over the decades, you enjoy the tasty "scrambled" house specialty, a hearty, rustic dish.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Plaza Mayor, Calle Gerona 4, 28012 Madrid Spain

The historic main square of Madrid leaves no one unimpressed - for the best sweet treats to conclude our Food Hopping, we continue to close by places slightly off he beaten track: from reliving a childhood dream by picking flowery sweets, by a heavenly layered cake at a contemporary hotspot to the sweet temptation of a classic pic-me-up, all senses will be satisfied.
