Today Nancy and I did something I have been looking forward to doing for months and that was to have roast suckling pig at the oldest restaurant in Madrid, or anywhere else for that matter. Restaurante Botin was opened in 1725 and specializes in roast suckling pig and I have to tell you it was simply amazing! From the buildings exterior stone and wood to the tight interior hallways and creaky ancient floors, I knew this was going to be a memorable moment we were about to create. Just being inside this place was breathtaking. We made reservations for the 1:00 lunch seating, as did many others, and had a memorable 2+ hour dining experience. We befriended the patrons at the table next to us, Junko and Flo, two friends traveling Spain from Los Angeles California. They even shared some of their Sangria with us, two awesome people and our newest blog followers 🙂 They also had the roast suckling pig along with roasted lamb, we were all in agreement…yums all around! After our memory making lunch we strolled to the Mercado De San Miguel where a lively symphony of freshly made foods and beverages were being enjoyed at each food counter. Since it was Saturday the place was packed shoulder to shoulder with tourists, locals and families. Too bad Nancy and I were too full from lunch to try anything as it looked delicious and extremely fresh. Enough of my babbling, check out the pictures with captions.
