This is not your average food court serving popular fast food by chains that you’ll have in mind when you generally visit an indoor eating area with multiple food vendors.
On the 9th floor of the popular Spanish department stores El Corte Ingles, located in the Plaza de Callao you’ll find what they have coined as the Gourmet Experience.
Within this floor alone you’ll be able to get your hands on some of the most sought out Spanish dishes made by locals’ favorite tapas bars and other food stalls which are very popular with locals who offer international dishes.
However, what personally draws me here is the food stall called StreetXo set up by the only 3 Michelin star restaurant in Madrid. Having had the chance to dine at their restaurant I can assure you that many of their dishes at the Gastro Experience are very similar in essence to what they are serving at the restaurant, but at a fraction of the cost of having to order the entire tasting menu.
A further attraction of this food court are the views while enjoying your meal, getting a table next to the window while the sun sets, will ensure you be able to contemplate some of the nicest panoramas of the Gran Via.
A wide selection of good quality food and wonderful views of the city of Madrid, it’s no wonder they call this a Gourmet Experience.
