Top Best Roscón in Town


Time for Roscón has arrived, it is one of our favourite Christmas moments! If you walk by Madrid, you will notice that all the bakeries show their best Roscón in their windows. With its typical frozen fruit on top of it and its oval shape.

Five Must Does in Madrid this Christmas

Decorate your home - Build your own Madrilenian nativity scene.
First go to plaza Mayor to buy figurines. The essential figurines are: Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, cow and donkey, angel, some shepherds and the three wise men.
A tip: do not buy the caganet it is not a local figurine.
Another tip: While in plaza Mayor take advantage to have a Christmas chocolate con churros at Chocolatería San Gines.
Then go to your nearby park and pick some moss, stones, twigs, etc.
Find a good spot in your house far from pets. Do not forget to build up a river with kitchen foil and to add some lighting that will make the joy of the little ones.
Visit a museum but make sure you buy your tickets online beforehand.
Our choice :
- Clara Peeters at Museo del Prado from 25th October 2016 to 19th February 2017.
- Renoir at Thyssen Bornemisza Museum from 18th October 2016 to 22th January 2017.
- Robert Doisneau – la Belleza de lo Cotidiano at Fundación Canal from 6th October 2016to 8th January 2017.

Treat your belly and go for nice healthy food.
Our choice:
- Bump and Green
- Hermosos y Malditos
- Nubel
- La Pagoda
- Amazónico

Treat your look. Since you are not going to start a diet go for a facial at Skininc, a massage at Assari or a walk at the Retiro Park.

Have crazy amusement. Go for a show with dinner to the newly revamped Florida Retiro, depending on the day you can choose a musical show or jazz music, and after 01:30 a.m. lively disco and dancing.

And a final suggestion outside the list: stay at home, relax and watch a nice TV series with a glass of Spanish wine avoiding the masses.

Best wishes to all of you from My Little Madrid!!

La Pagoda - Original Asian Restaurant

This asian restaurant named as the typical Asian worship temple: La Pagoda,  has been one of my latest discoveries in the Bernabeu area. It was love at first sight, big windows to a small but bright tropical interior where a nice green wallpaper and wood welcome the visitor. Its concept is eatery and bar and during the summer, they also have a nice terrace.
