Tapas in Chueca at Mercado San Anton Madrid!
Are you looking for a low budget trip? Then Madrid is my favorite! Sun, cava and tapas is all you need for a weekend in Spain. I really like the trendy neighbourhood Chueca in Madrid! It’s full of (gay) bars (and shoe shops!). Wandering around in Chueca we discovered: Mercado San Anton Madrid. A modern indoor market with farm-fresh local produce. On the first floor you find several small tapas bars selling delicious bites with ingredients from the market. And good news: they’re very cheap too!
Why I love Mercado San Anton Madrid:
I love tapas. Everyone chooses what he likes and you can order as many as you want. At Mercado San Anton Madrid they have tapas from only € 1, – per bite. Just squeeze in standing at the bar and drink and eat with the locals. Me and my friends liked this place so much, I think we went there every day for a quick after shopping bite!
Trendy rooftop bar at Mercado San Anton Madrid
Cool place for a drink in Chueca is the rooftop bar at Mercado San Anton Madrid! La Cocina San Anton is a popular hot spot when, and I know why they have very good cocktails there ;-). The trendy restaurant La Cocina San Anton can be very busy so it’s recommended to make a reservation. Especially for the weekends!
