Hi there! I'm a teacher foodie from Toronto who'll be heading to Spain for my first time in August (I know... it's hot, and everything's closed) with my husband. We're in our early 30s, DINKs, interested in exciting, authentic, off-the-tourist-path, happening places to eat and drink with good cava/beer/wine/cocktails and great ambiance. We don't mind loud, but we want some nicer experiences too (and I know already...TICKETS as Ascador Extebarri will be closed.)
Looking for any and all suggestions you have. We have 3 dinners in BCN and Madrid, and 2 dinners in SS, and 1 each in Bibao and Burgos. Also looking for lunch/market/snack ideas as well as any can't-miss food tourist things.
Thanks in advance for your help!
