Another interesting fact about Madrid is that it has no major river yet we have the biggest seafood market in Europe without even having a coast! That’s right, every morning fresh fish is driven in from all major coastal towns of our Mediterranean coast. Hence, Madrid is known throughout Spain for its Calamari sandwich, national tourists come from all parts of Spain and order calamari sandwiches at Plaza Mayor where Madrid local’s go to have them as well.

The origin of Spain’s most popular dish, paella, comes from Valencia, an eastern Mediterranean province. But, every region in Spain has their own way of making them. Some local’s call our Madrid paellas”land, air and sea.” Madrid’s paella mixta has just that, chicken, pork, clams, muscles, shrimp, scampi, calamaris and assortment of vegetables. Legend has it that when national tourists come to Madrid, they don’t usually order our paella because they can’t imagine our paellas being so tasty with so many ingredients, a rule of thumb of rice is, less ingredients is better, but they are rather delicious! We love taking you where Madrid local’s go to have an amazing paella.
