Reasons to head back to Madrid

sunny 73 °F

Top Ten Reasons?
No, who needs that many.

If you've caught any of the buzz from the vuvuzelas or the predictions from (the now retired) Paul then Madrid's World Cup win has probably placed Spain's capital city on your radar since the summer. For me I have many more fond memories and ties to the city than that; Madrid was the 1st place I've visited in Spain, where I met many wonderful people, but none more dear than my boyfriend, where Pueblo Ingles began and the pathway to unique daytrips that are still top 5 on my list of travels.

Now, Bourdain's visited and having just watched the episode on the TravelChannel, I can't wait for my next visit. He highlighted many things about the city that would most certainly bring a wonderful second (culinary) visit: old school lion of a restaurant serving traditional homemade dishes, a bred of young chefs serving cross-cultural fusion of Spanish and Chinese (dim sum) food, new tapas renditions with a cool gastropub vibe without the pretense - yum. And there was images of jamon that were sinfully delish!
