Taste food from all over Spain after booking cheap flights to Madrid

Brits travelling on cheap flights to Madrid are afforded access to a city offering food from all of Spain's different regions.

Brits travelling on cheap flights to Madrid are afforded access to a city offering food from all of Spain’s different regions.

This particular attraction of the country’s capital has been highlighted by Ben Curtis, editor of Notes from Spain, a blog chronicling the life of a British expat living in Madrid.

Mr Curtis said the most traditional Madrileno dish is Cocido, a bowl of rich pork broth to start followed by a main consisting of chickpeas, cabbage and meat.

"Despite being so far from the sea, Madrid is also famous for its seafood, and the ‘gambas’ [prawns] are always worth a try," he commented.

"Most guidebooks send people to trendy and central La Latina for tapas and bar crawling, but there is a vibrant, young crowd in the Malasana neighbourhood, with a wealth of both modern and more traditional bars to check out."

In May, the Spanish capital welcomed 732,709 visitors – the highest monthly figure recorded in the city’s history.
