MERCADO ANTON MARTIN

MERCADO ANTON MARTIN

I love all the Madrid markets, probably I can even start a blog only about food markets.

I don’t know if all my interested is due to my father. He was working in markets selling fruits, and when I was a child I used to reach him sometimes.

It’s a very hard work and I totally respect all the workers that everyday wake up and open their stalls, even if it’s cold, it’s hard and all a lot of the other stalls are closed, it is still a beautiful job.

Let’s talk about pichos and Golfo de Bizkaia.

Pinchos are the quintessential of the North of Spain Tapas. The used to put almost everything on a little slice of bread with a toothpick on it.

At the end of the lunch or dinnr, or just happy hour, you count how many toothpicks are left on the dish and that’s it.

The position of the Madrid Restaurant is great, in my favourite barrio: Las Letras, just behind the famous Plaza Santa Ana.

I am really in love with Gigi Meet me Bar. You cannot walk along calle Luchana and hesitate a few minutes trying to get sneak peek of this lovely restaurant. The elegance and all the details of the main room will encourage you to get in. It looks a lot like a French or better Parisian bistrot, but it’s 100% from Madrid, behind Gigi there is a gran mujer Pilar Menéndez. She welcomes her guests as Gigi like if the restaurant was a real house with lovely tables, pink velvelt and a very familiar fireplace.

A great idea for a breakfast, a quick lunch or a relaxed dinner. Not to forget the Croque Madame you can find at Gigi’s brunch. Just watching the menu you can easily fall in love as I did.

Last time I went there it was after a great morning at the Museo Sorolla. 10-15 minutes walking and here we are in calle Luchana.
