The Fringes of the City
Our class visit to the fringes of the city was a lesson in socioeconomics, architecture, and urban geography.

There were two specific things on this trip that I had never witnessed before in any city: a virtual ghost-town of newly-built apartments and an old village that has been swallowe... [Ampliar]

Technically outside of Madrid, this urbanización residentcial is like it's own miniture city. Driving up to the entrance, you are met by security to keep the peace. It's the madrileño response to the suburbs---which I've learned los suburbios hold a negitive, slum-like c... [Ampliar]

They say that diversity is the spice of life, and in my opinion, for cooking as well. That's why I love to try all types of cuisines, and thiis Senegalese restaurant in Lavapíes is definitely hits the spot. It's cheap, hugely portioned, hearty, and above all, delicious. It's no... [Ampliar]

Mercado de San Fernando
The Mercado de San Fernando is in Calle Embajadores, in the neighbourhood with the same name that everyone knows as Lavapies. To me this market is a little miracle. Just a couple of years ago it was declining. Empty stalls, low lights, void corridors..it was the image of decadence and the epitomizat... [Ampliar]

It's not a fancy date spot, just a place you go if you want a good hearty meal. Definitely worth a try if winter makes you crave hearty food like I do.

The Underground Chinese Spot

Who would have known that one of the most authentic chinese food restaurants in Madrid would be in an underground parking lot under Plaza de España? Well that's actually the case. It's not the best chinese food I've ever had, nor the cheapest neither, but growing up on Chinese food, I have to get it once awhile, and this place hits the spot. Not like how grandma makes it, but for Madrid, its close enough.

Mercado de San Fernando

The Mercado de San Fernando is in Calle Embajadores, in the neighbourhood with the same name that everyone knows as Lavapies. To me this market is a little miracle. Just a couple of years ago it was declining. Empty stalls, low lights, void corridors..it was the image of decadence and the epitomization of the slow agony of public markets. Since then the market bussiness have flourished. New young entrepreneurs have arrived with innovative ideas. The market has become a reference of bottom up bussiness regeneration and of some social economy examples.

I like to have a cofee in the oldest bussiness in the market, the old little corner bar manage by an aged couple. They are always welcoming and offering the best of the day. It is a good synthesis of how can markets -with their role... [Ampliar]

Open 24 Hours

For everyone who misses 7-11 as if it were their own child - this is for you. I nearly died of happiness when I came across this place. They have well priced things, lots of snacks (the neopalitinis are so good! they even warm up them if you ask), you can recharge your own, you can buy snacks like chips and best of all, Ben and Jerry's! (they have some of the best selection I've seen in all of Madrid), and amazing warm up pizzas.

Any time you're leaving or near school looking for a snack, I recommend you swing by.
