What I Wore 8: La Latina



After a long hard day on Saturday transporting ourselves around Madrid and the surrounding provinces pretty unsuccessfully, Sunday needed to be an easy and relaxed day. Sunday is an amazing day to be out and about in Madrid. The neighbourhood of La Latina is particularly special on a Sunday due to the El Rastro Mercado being situated there. La Latina is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Madrid and is full of traditional Spanish eateries and bars. It is also home to some of the most delicious tapas in Madrid. On a Sunday it is hard to find a table anywhere without a wait, it really is very popular.




 Today we treated ourselves to a cheeky coffee prior to braving the busy busy market in a very cute café called La China Mandarina. One thing I love about this lovely café is the size of their coffees. Normally in Spain a coffee is so small it is finished in around 4 mouthfuls but here they have gorgeous big cups and saucers. Perfect for when it’s chilly outside. After the market we were desperate for something warm and unhealthy to eat. The day before we had all been talking about Huevos Rotos (eggs, ham and chips) so we needed to feed the craving. We decided to go to a very traditional taberna called Taberna Almendro 13. They serve the most amazing Huevos Rotos in Madrid. This place is so traditional that they don’t even serve soft drinks. The only options available here are beer, wine, water or grape juice. The cravings were well and truly fed and we left very very full but very satisfied. This place is an absolute must visit for a true authentic Spanish experience.

  1. Cute outfit, however… your images bring back sooooooo many distant memories! One of those flights of stairs brought back a whole flood of memories – wow. Is that one of the stairs descending into the Metro…? I have not been in Madrid since 1984, but if I ever get back, I WILL be hunting down that Taberna Almendro 13. OMG those tapas look like to die for. 🙂 Keep up the great work and here is wishing you all the best during the coming holiday season!
