Lunch at Mercado de San Miguel, which was two kinds of paella, four types of tapas and chorizos followed by churros dipped in chocolate sauce – tick, tick, tick and tick.Get lost while looking for the night’s flamenco show venue – tick.Dare to ask suspicious looking man with pony tail and John Lennon-ish sunglasses, smoking in the back of randomly parked car, for directions (my father was convinced this man was a peddler) – tick.
For 18 euros each, we enjoyed an hour-long show with a glass of sangria. At the restaurant, we ended up paying an additional 17 euros for tapas, the infamous small plates of food found throughout Spain. This restaurant does serve dinner at the rate of 55 euros through the hostel’s partnership. I absolutely loved the sangria. In regards to the tapas, they were okay. If Jackie and I had planned ahead, I would have preferred to eat at the bustling Mercado del San Miguel, a food hall that is located nearby.
