Peruvian eating in Madrid

August 16, 2010


Madrid has close roots with Latin America for obvious reasons and it’s easy to find communities of people from each of these countries.

El Rincon de Pardinas, Avenida de America

February 4, 2010


When I first arrived in Madrid I lived in Avenida de America. I have to be honest, it’s not my favourite area in Madrid. However, whilst I was there, I discovered this great little bar which also has a restaurant – El Rincon de Pardinas. I prefer the bar, even for proper meals. I think […]

Nina Madrid

January 31, 2010

Getting used to Madrid, starting with Tapas

January 6, 2010


I have recently moved to Madrid and for one reason or another, the city is taking some time to grow on me (top tip: pickpockets are rife, if it’s not tied down, it’s gone, make sure pockets are deep and zipped!). After huge enthusiasm for tapas in the first couple of weeks, I got bored […]
