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

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 […]

One of the first good restaurants that I found in Madrid is Nina, at the north end of MalasaƱa in Madrid. Actually I didn’t technically find it, my boyfriend took me there. I loved it and subsequently arranged to have a big dinner there for a friend’s 30th. And then today I tested the brunch […]

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 […]
