The Madrid Tapas Crawl Tour
Madrileños love to eat traditional products and dishes from their beloved city. On this walking food tour, we want you to feel like a local by experiencing picoteo in Madrid, the authentic and timeless art of bar-crawling and tapas sampling. Join us on a historical, cultural and gastronomic journey and share our passion for Madrid. Where the locals go, we go!
The origins of the word “picoteo” lie in the verb “picar,” which means eating small bites from several shared plates. This is also known as “tapeo,” or a tapas crawl. We want to share picoteo in Madrid with you!
In the early evening, we take you on a tour to see the most emblematic highlights of one of Madrid’s most vibrant neighbourhoods over three hours. Our culinary journey starts at a traditional bodega serving delicious Spanish tapas, a local favorite that’s been around for decades. Over the next three stops, we try some amazing meat and fish dishes from Madrid, along with some cold draft beer and local wines.
To conclude our picoteo in Madrid, we finish at a traditional restaurant featuring cuisine from the north of Spain. An outstanding discovery, it’s a family-owned gem specializing in Galician-style tapas, where you can enjoy incredible dishes as well as luxurious desserts for an authentic gastronomic experience.
