curry up.

21 May

Last night, a group of my friends and I decided to trek over to the barrio of Madrid known as Lavapiés for some authentic Indian food. While I don’t go to Lavapiés very often, I am finding I really like it. It’s an immigrant community – it was the former Jewish Quarter until the Spanish Inquisition in 1492. Now, the barrio is comprised of 50% non-Spaniards. Delicious non-Spanish food is the result.

We ate at Shapla, located at C/ Lavapiés, 42 and took advantage of their cheap menus del dia y noche.

enjoying the feast! and it was two of my friends' first time trying Indian food!

glad running is my other hobby.

batido de mango. be jealous.

The rest of the night included a stroll through the barrio, and a drink at a place called Sol y Sombra that I had always heard about but had never bothered to pay the cover to get into. We called it a night on the earlier side (1:15) and my roommate and I used her recently lost metro pass as an excuse to walk back to our apartment.

On the agenda for the day: a long run of some sort, a possible shopping trip, and the arrival of my friend Michelle who may just be crazier than I am.
