Our 2 week trip is coming up very soon and we are uncharacteristically unprepared! Usually by now we have a long list of places we plan to go, but things have just been far too hectic the last few months.
We are all about immersing ourselves in the local cuisine, with forays into interesting immigrant cuisines as well. We have read about the African communities in Lisbon (from colonial times) and are curious about their food as well.
And in Madrid, of course, we plan to go tapas crazy. The Mercado de San Miguel will be a big stop for us, probably multiple times. And I read about Casa Lucas in a trip report.
If we do a big ticket meal (not a certainty) in Madrid we've had LUA and Allard recommended.
I had other notes but I'm not sure where they are... Anyone want to offer any last minute thoughts? We might play it looser than usual and just see what we discover. Thanks!
