Love this place! My partner is spanish and we always go here when we are at home. There are never many tourists there and the food and beverages are delicious. The surrounding neighbourhood is also great to explore after you have filled yourself up.

We are sick and tired of the tourist trap called Mercado San Miguel. The market Mercado San Fernando has it all. Friendly atmosphere. Nice eateries. Fine drinking places. Everything just calls for coming back and back ... so we will :-)

different country ... except it's hard to tell which
one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
