Practically everyone who comes to Madrid will end up eating tapas – the dish that often accompanies a beer, wine or other beverage in Madrid’s bars and restaurants. Well, from today (9th June) until the 12th June, the city will be hosting its own Feria de la Tapa or Tapas Fair.
Held in the Pabellón Auxiliar Madrid Arena, in the Casa de Campo, it is open to both catering businesses and the general public and should prove an ideal opportunity to get to know one of the gastronomic delights of the city, and indeed Spain. Many of the best places to eat tapas in Madrid will be represented including ‘Chantarella’, ‘El Rincón de Goya’, ‘Las Bravas’, ‘El Almendro’, ‘La Taberna del Alabardero’, ‘Los Cigarrales’ and ‘La Montadería’. There will also be lively discussion and a competition for ‘pulling the best beer’!
Entrance is FREE and tapas only cost 1.2 Euros – a bargain!
