I’m happy to say Madrid is a childhood home spot for me… my mother’s home town and where my mother’s family live. A place I return to when I need to just let go and unwind.
One place I do like to visit every time I go back is… Viva La Vida! in La Latina… This restaurant is only a few minutes walk from the famous Sunday El Rastro Market too – the perfect spot after spending hours roaming around the market and in need of some yummy veggie delights to recharge!
It seems to be getting relatively good reviews so far… I admit, the only thing that would hold me back on some days is the huge crowd that flock here, especially on the weekends – but this is just because I like a quiet relaxing background when eating! This spot is obviously a favourite for many local Spaniards and tourists alike 🙂
It has a very beautifully vibrant interior – I met the owner a few years ago while having a smoothie there and she told me that the decor was inspired from her home land of Brazil ♥
And if you prefer dining outdoors, there are seats outside on the square… wonderful in the sunshine for people watching and letting time float by!
With a juice bar and delicious buffet style food, this place is one of my favourite veggie treats in Madrid to eat out!
