Travels with a Gourmet

a food lover's travels, memorable meals, culinary trials and gastronomic experiences


Half term started yesterday so I’m taking advantage of the days off to finish some paperwork that have been left sitting on my desk for almost a year, at the Philippine embassy in Madrid and making it into a mini-break too.  We’ll be taking the AVE (high-speed train) from Malaga which should get us to Madrid’s Atocha station in less than three hours.

At the top of my list is the Mercado San Miguel, Madrid’s renovated market near the Plaza Mayor which re-opened earlier this year after extensive renovations and now houses several stalls (fruits, vegetables, seafood, ham etc.) plus a few gourmet boutiques and a central area which serves food from the few bars/restaurants.  Also on my list are:  Isolee – the multi-brand boutique which has its’ own restaurant/bar and deli, some window shopping on Serrano to see the new collections, a meal at our favorite sushi place Ginza and this time hopefully, a visit to the Reina Sofia national museum of contemporary art.  That should just about fill up the two days we’re there before we return to Marbella.
