5. Stuff your Face at a Con­verted Mar­ket

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

The last few years have seen tvva culi­nary resur­gence in Madrid’s food scene, with a flow­er­ing of com­bi­na­tion mar­kets/food courts which have taken over the evenings. Grab a caña—that’s a small glass of beer—and weave among the stall, pick­ing out phe­nom­e­nal ta­pas and new-wave treats, from clas­sic jamón iberico to freshly shucked oys­ters or flash-fried shrimp. Check out the orig­i­nal mar­ket, the Mer­cado de San Miguel (Plaza de San Miguel, Madrid, (+34) 915-424-936), with its fan­tas­tic wrought iron ar­chi­tec­ture. Or try the light and airy Mer­cado San An­tón (24B Calle de Au­gusto Figueroa, Madrid, (+34) 913-300-730), with it’s fan­tas­tic rooftop ter­race that’s per­fect for a sun­downer. In the evening, head to Platea (5-7 Calle de Goya, Madrid, (+34) 915-770-025), housed in a huge con­verted cin­ema, for some top-qual­ity food—at a price. Make sure to grab a cock­tail right at the top of the build­ing, over­look­ing the en­tire room.
