Residents of Madrid are proud of the city’s unique culinary heritage, making this city a must for food lovers: try Madrid’s selection of noodly strews, cured meats, garlic soup and fried potatoes, or head for restaurants catering to every international taste from around the world. Hit the tapas bars in Huertas (HWAIR-tahs) and Lavapies (lah-vah-pee-ACE) for an inexpensive meal in a friendly atmosphere, or splash out on gourmet fare around the Plaza Mayor (mai-OHR). Watch the day go by in one of the city’s famous sidewalk cafés, or hold a relaxing picnic in the park.
