Mercado de San Antón
We discovered the Mercado de San Antón today!!! Once upon a time this was the local market for residents in the area. Located at Augusto Figueros 24, in Chueca, they have put together a traditional market combined with restaurants and bars where you can pick your tapa made from the different selection of goodies! On the ground floor is the market and on the second floor you can find "Show Cooking".
On the third floor there is a great terrace, where you can have lunch and or dinner. Price was right too!!! Open from Sunday to Thursday from 10 a.m to midnight, and on Fridays to Sunday its open to 1.30 in the morning.
We found a great meat shop- La Finca- here is a picture of Alberto... you can buy a nice piece of meat and they will barbecue it for you at the terrace restaurant!!!
The meat is for real!!! La Finca is a new concept in meat... They call it "meat for happiness". They have a web: http://www.jimenezbarbero.com/ in Spanish, but you can visit it or even buy online!
The market also has a web, but its in Spanish: http://www.mercadosananton.com/
Worth a visit!!! Great atmosphere and the price is right!!!
