With the premise of breaking the myth that the gastronomic proposal in luxury hotels is inaccessible, Hotel Tapa Tour has already been offering gourmet bites in some of the most exclusive hotels in Madrid for eight editions. This year it will be held from September 14 to 24 and luxury hotels such as Rosewood Villa Magna, Four Seasons or the Mandarin Oriental Ritz, among others, have joined the event. In total, 23 hotspots in the capital to bring you haute cuisine in bite-sized format in a more informal, very appetizing and, above all, affordable way. You can’t miss it!

This year’s edition proposes 8 different routes that correspond to groupings with the different enclaves of the hotels. In addition, one of the novelties of this new Hotel Tapa Tour in Madrid is the premiere of the in-house formula at the Rosewood Villa Magna. This is an unprecedented experience with which you can make a tapas route within the hotel itself, knowing its different gastronomic spaces. In total 4 tapas with their respective pairings, whose closed price will be 50 €. Attendees will be able to taste the creations of the chefs created by chefs Mauro García Lamas, Francisco Sanabria and Emanuel Alves.

Thus, in Amós he will offer his version of the traditional marriage paired with D.O. Cava Sogas Mascaró Brut Orgánico; in Las Brasas de Castellana, you will have the opportunity to taste a juicy Flamenquín of Iberian and smoked meats, along with D.O. Ribera del Duero Arzuaga Laderas del Norte; in the Tarde.O area, there will be a Croqueta de txangurro, moilee sauce and veil of Iberian bacon accompanied by a beer; the particular tasting menu will end with the Mini pavlova of figs and blackberries and a delicious Cointreau Cocktail Prado.

From Four Seasons to Mandarin Ritz or Radisson Red Madrid

This year the proposal is very complete and a lot of hotels will participate and have prepared up to 4 creations each with different pairings. From signature croquettes to sweet bites. Diners will be able to organize their own tapas route choosing those hotels they prefer, with prices around 8-10 € per tapa and pairing, with which to have the opportunity to taste the creations of chefs as prestigious as great chefs such as Ignacio Vara (from Isa Restaurant and Cocktail Bary in Four Seasons), Quique Dacosta (Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid), Jesus Sanchez (Rosewood Villa Magna), Eneko Atxa (Radisson Red Madrid) or Ramon Freixa (The Principal Madrid).

For example, at the Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Dacosta has prepared a Bocado de Khao Soi a la española paired with D.O. Cava Mestres Clos Damiana Gran Reserva Brut Nature, for 9 €.

At the Four Seasons they have included proposals such as Croqueta tigre, sriracha, white shrimp tartar with beer, for €8. Meanwhile, at the Radisson Red Madrid they have on the menu the Yema de huevo de caserío on wheat stew paired with a glass of D.O. Ribera del Duero Tierra Aranda, for 9 €.
