Eat and Drink in Spain

Madrid has transformed itself into one of Europe’s culinary capitals, not least because the city has long been a magnet for people (and cuisines) from all over Spain. Everything that is exciting about Spanish cooking has gravitated to the capital, from Basque tapas bars to avant-garde Catalan chefs, from the best in Galician seafood to Andalucía’s Mediterranean catch.

Every day tonnes of fish and seafood are trucked in to satisfy the madrileño taste for the sea, to the extent that, remarkable for a city so far inland, Madrid is home to the second-largest fish market in the world (after Tokyo). As for tapas bars, fabulous options can be found in every barrio, but the best clamour for space in La Latina, part of a Sunday ritual that has lasted centuries.
