Tapas Tour & OLDEST RESTAURANT in The WORLD in Madrid Spain

  • Published on Feb 10, 2019
  • On this food adventure, I went to tour the San Miguel Market in Madrid, Spain. This is a great place to visit, sampling some of the best Madrid's market food has to offer. After the market, I went to El Sur to eat gambas which is shrimp with garlic sauce, and I had some Cuban pulled pork. That pork was my favorite dish there. For dessert, I ate churros with hot chocolate, and this place was incredibly packed so get ready to wait in line! To end my food day, I went to one of the oldest restaurants in Spain, Botin and it's famous for its roast suckling pig!

    tapas are meant not to be eaten as a meal , they are a snack you nibble while your drinking to stop you getting drunk, so the salt percentage will be higher because your not meant to stuff half a pie in your mouth at once , roflmao , your so funny

      btw if you cook the pork i said , take the skin off before you soak it , salt and oil it and roast it

    The reason why Paella tastes so bad here in the US is because they use a premade mix from a box and canned seafood in their Paella. It is actually disgusting. I prefer fresh ingredients they taste so much better.

    Spanish don't know how to eat, if you want some very good fresh seafood you should come to Portugal, have you see any sea near Madrid? Not fresh.
