Dollars To Euros
Summer 2018: I took a trip around Madrid, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris. Europe opened my eyes to a new culture, environment, and even lifestyle.
The first three weeks, I was on a study abroad trip and the last week, I met up with my sister and friend in Paris. Food culture was huge in Europe. I noticed that the vast majority ate out and when they did they stayed out alte. I was required to buy lunch and dinner during the study abroad, and when I met up with my friends, we went out. Because we ate out almost every meal, I was able to experience a lot of restaurants and restaurant culture.
Here listed are some of my favorite snacks/ meals I had in Europe!
Hands down the best Gelato I have EVER had called at Giolatto. 3 euros a scoop.
Calle de Atocha, 42 Tirso de Molina
Stone oven Pizza in Madrid called NAP. 10 euros for a pizza. NAP was my favorite restaurant experience in Europe from the people being super friendly who worked there, to where we sat. We sat right at the end of the restaurant overlooking the streets of Madrid.
Chocolateria San Gines. Madrid was well known for churros and chocolate. The churro cafe was open 24 hours; a place mixing locals and tourists. 4 euros for 4 churros.
Pasadizo San Ginés, 5, 28013 Madrid, Spain
Ricotta cheese and fig ice cream at a cafe right by the Prado museum called Supracafè. We asked the waiter what his favorite ice cream was. At first, I did not think ricotta cheese would be good ice cream, but to my surprise, it was one of the creamiest, sweetest ice creams I have tasted. 5 euros
Calle Ave Maria 19 A, 28012 Madrid, Spain
