To most visitors, Spanish cuisine and the word ‘tapas’ are synonymous. Described as “the only way to eat without noticing”, tapas is often misunderstood. On this walking tour, I’ll show you that there's more to Spanish cuisine than just tapas. I’ll also introduce you to tapear, the art of dining on tapas, in all its glory. Starting outside the Mercado de San Miguel and ending in front of the 150-year-old establishment now known as Viva Madrid. Along the way, I’ll show you some of the central hotspots most popular with locals, from Bodegas Riclas and Casa Revuelta, both close to Plaza Mayor, to the celebrated Cava Baja in La Latina, the historically significant Casa Labra, and Madrid’s oldest taverna on Calle Huertas. I’ll also tell you about some of the signature dishes associated with these establishments, the food and drink that’s emblematic of Madrid, and some of the gastronomical traditions from around Spain. I’ll also let you in on a few tips like how to order, the types of dishes and drink options available, ways of paying, and how the Spanish typically do a tapas route with friends.
