Fantastic personal Tour in private car for Foodies who aim to experience true Madrid and its luscious stews.
Dishes to be eaten with spoon belong to most authentic cooking of Madrid. Its origins date back to the fifteenth century. They are delicious, varied and very rich and, above all, typical of Madrid.
Madrid Museum Tours proposes you to enjoy an awesome and exclusive gastronomic experience : A tasty stew of Madrid in the historic Bodega Don Pedro (year 1702), managed since its inception by the Guinales family.
Bodega Don Pedro is not a tourist restaurant. It is the favorite restaurant of local foodies, therefore, you meet here people from Madrid who enjoy best food and not clueless travelers seeking those mediocre Tapas for Tourists which are offered in downtown, generally, by some unscrupulous promoters who take advantage of the good faith of visitors from abroad.
In the past, stew was the favorite dish of emperors, kings and cardinals.
Its ingredients are beans or lentils or chickpeas or tender lima beans, garnished with seasonal vegetables, fresh seafood or selected meat or sausages.
Bodega Don Pedro offers daily to local foodies and clients of Madrid Museum Tours a wide variety of stews that you will have yourself in the classic old way, directly from your individual pot. More than that: Our customers will be hospitably treated by Irene or her father, the incomparable Don Pedro, both current representatives of the eighth generation of the founding family of this wonderful and unique traditional restaurant specialized in the best Madrid cuisine.
The stew you choose will be accompanied, of course, by an excellent wine of Madrid, to bring to an inspirational finish this unforgettable culinary experience which is only available to the demanding clients of Madrid Museum Tours who don’t care at all to visit the places that Ernest Hemingway was fond of but prefer personalized service and a genuine and sublime stew in Bodega Don Pedro.
