Mercado de San Miguel (Madrid, Spain)

Today we decided to check out Madrid’s Mercado de San Miguel for a quick lunch. Though the Mercado was smaller than I anticipated, the quality and variety of food choices were great. At one vendor I picked up some seafood tostadas. At another I grabbed some montaditos and the best tortilla Española I’ve had yet. We also grabbed a couple of glasses of sangria. Everything was delicious, especially the gulas, which are the baby eels. Afterwards we grabbed some coffee and a couple of pastries. The almond tart I ordered was insanely good! It was sweet and salty with a nice crisp tart shell. The food in Madrid is quite impressive.
