|Unquestionably my favorite food find in Madrid.|
|Plenty of tapas and tasties to pick from. Most items are|
displayed in glass cases. Everything from dessert to jamon
to sushi. Everything good quality. Plenty of authentic
Spanish as well as international eats. Always crowded.
|Other mercado finds: frozen yoghurt, fresh fruit, good cheese|
selection, coffee station, Portuguese baked goods, home-made
croquettes, salads, seafood soup, flower arrangements, caviar.
|Tortilla (Spanish omelette). Typical tapa consisting of|
potatoes, egg, and onion.
|My pinxtos for the day.|
Pinxtos: pinchos. Small Spanish snack or tapa.
|Jamon jamon jamon. The most popular choice of meat|
in Spain. Served as a bocadillo (baguette sandwich) usually.
|Plenty of pastries to choose from. Shortbreads and chocolate|
truffles thus far are the winners.
|Chocolate con churros: an absolute must-try while in Spain.|
