You’ll see Madrid’s famous Malasaña neighborhood through the eyes of someone sitting in a taberna at the turn of the 20th century, contrasted with the emerging tastes of Madrid’s modern generation. We’ll eat, drink, and talk about the history of Spain's gastronomy. Plus, you’ll see this vibrant neighborhood in action as we take a look at Malasaña's main streets and three most important plazas.
I’m a Texas native, but have called Madrid home for the past seven years. Gastronomy is my passion; I think it’s one of the best ways to learn about a culture. I run a social media account about Madrid’s restaurant scene, which focuses heavily on Malasaña, my favorite neighborhood in the city.
