Food Blogs - Madrid, Seville, Granada, Barcelona

Hi foodie friends,

I particular am looking for blogs that are updated frequently. Any other online resources besides this site are welcome!

      1. re: Parigi

        Thanks so much! I will definitely explore.

        1. re: karbare07

          This site was very helpful, especially great that you could look up by neighborhood. Thanks so much!

      2. Seville: Azahar Seville is really all you need!

        Madrid: Spanish Sabores is my own work, but additionally I recommend Madrid Chow and Las Mesas de Vanessa. The Madrid Food Tour blog section also has lots of tips. If you can read/skim in Spanish, I'd recommend Eat and Love Madrid.

        Barcelona: Sobremesa in Spain has some very good finds

        Hope these help!

        1. Just to let you know, May 15 is a major holiday in Madrid (San Isidro). It's a fun time to visit (unless you hate street parties, crowds and protests), but that long weekend could be a bit different depending on where you are booking.

          Not a blog, but Verema can be a good source of info on restaurants and wine.

            We arrive on May 16th, so will there be much holiday activity then?

            Thanks for the Verema note. I will check it out.

              That weekend will be a "puente" for a lot of people (a four-day weekend), so many will go out of town and there will be a lot of street fiestas, concerts, etc. for those who stay, mainly around the Plaza Mayor, Las Vistillas, El Retiro, and the Pradera de San Isidro.

          2. Not a blog but an awesome experience is to go to an eatwith meal- a local cooking in their own home!
