Madrid: La Cesta

Screen Shot 2013-10-30 at 19.59.09

Madrid seems to been ages ago, but the city really conquered a place into my heart! The first night I booked a table at La Cesta and was already overwhelmed by happiness to see that the first table was available from 20.30 and the last table at 23.30! I found the restaurant after a review on the blog My Little Madrid and it specially attracted me because of their vision” “A creative menu, offering delicate, tasty, natural and uncomplicated dishes which avoid pretention and over-sophistication. Not divided into starters or main courses, and nothing over €20.” and to top it off because of their dream-team in the kitchen (two Michelin stars and three Repsol sun).

To be honest, when we arrived I wasn’t really impressed by their entrance, but luckily their main restaurant looked a lot better. Nice and colorful and with a table at 20.30 (which is late for both Dutch and Danish standards..) we were the first to arrive. This was a bit akward, but our stomachs definitely couldn’t wait any longer! We weren’t sure what to order, so we started with some starters and they were HEAVEN, pure HEAVEN. So we decided to go for the entire menu. This ended up to be a bit too much, but I can reassure you that every single bite we had was just amazing. Amazing food and amazing wine: what else can a girl ask for?

I can imagine that the restaurant is a bit more expensive for Spanish standards, but we paid around 130 euro for an amazing meal with a bunch of wine, so for Danish standards it was actually a “normal” price with outstanding food and wine. Oh yeah and before I forget: the service was also more than amazing, definite recommendation! Take me back to this place 😉

Madrid: Mercado de San Miguel

IMG_0180

With an early flight to Madrid, we arrived to the city around noon and I can tell you: this makes you hungry! Well to be honest, pretty much everything makes me hungry, so after we dumped our stuff at the hotel it was time for lunch! Luckily our hotel was a walking distance from Mercado de San Miguel, which reminded me a lot of Copenhagen’s own Torvehallerne only with a lot more tapas and A LOT cheaper (think: 1 euro per tapa). It was like heaven for me and I ran around like a chicken without a head buying everything I wanted to try, to the amusement of the boyfriend which thought I fitted in quite well with all the Chinese tourists. The place is a bit touristy (a lot of pushing and pulling) but I would still recommend it: who doesn’t want’s to eat oysters, cheap tapas and have a Sangria?

Madrid

IMG_0175

Madrid, Madrid, Madrid. What can I say? Besides good food I didn’t really had any expectations about the city and got totally blown away by all of its awesomeness! We got invited for a wedding and it has set the bar extremely high regarding all future weddings. Unfortunately I didn’t make any pictures of it, but picture Gossip Girl X Prinsjesdag (a lot of hats) X The Hangover… We met some pretty cool people from all over the globe and had the most amazing tapas.

Going away for a weekend, kinda makes me realize we should go away more weekends 😎 We arrived on Friday afternoon and explored the city. Coming from Northern Europe it was extremely nice to enjoy some sun again (and going outside without jacket) and me being food addicted (it seriously becomes scary at this point) we started a walk to get some food to walk more to get some more food. Saturday we had the wedding and Sunday we tried to get over the boyfriends hangover to go for walks to end up with more food. But anyways in this post I wanted to share with you how beautiful the city is, I will upload some pictures this week from all my food recommendations!!

Hello beautiful readers,

In a couple of weeks I will visiting Madrid for a wedding, it’s actually my first wedding which I was invited for, instead of being the plus 1 of my parents. Hmm, actually it was the boyfriend who was invited, so I guess I’m still the plus 1…

So I am planning to eat all the tapas I can find and if you have any recommendations for nice restaurants, pleaseeee let me know :)
