Best Madrid blogs for 2019 and beyond

Looking for the best Madrid blogs?

Well, you’ve come to the right place.


Although, I must say… it’s my somewhat biased opinion that you’re already on the best blog about expat life in Madrid – bar none.

The Chorizo Chronicles has been here for more than 9 years, and I’ve spent most of that time blogging about everything that’s going on in the beautiful city of Madrid and the beautiful nation of Spain.

Or almost everything.

(Update: Madrid, and more recently, Barcelona.)

Anyway, I’ve got some highly useful (and occasionally humorous) articles about Madrid and Spain on here like these:

And much much more (as if those three etc up there didn’t already insinuate that fact).

Strangely, I’ve even got some semi-serious stuff about Spanish politics. And some of what I do is just writing practice (but fun anyway).

This is the view from Dear Hotel on Gran Vía, right next to Plaza España. I wrote about it for Lonely Planet. You should check it out… it’s got one of the best views of Madrid.

Anyway, I’ve also got some friends in the blogosphere you might want to know about. People I know, people I like, talented writers with something to say.

So without further ado, these are my favorite blogs about Madrid and Spain.

The best Madrid blogs for 2019 – and, of course, beyond

In no particular order…

Kusina Madrid – Natalia’s blog is still pretty new, but she’s coming on strong with food and cross-cultural stories. Originally a journalist from the Philippines, she’s the mastermind behind the Chefugee pop-up dinner movement and has been instrumental to the success of local celebrity chef Stefane Shoji of L’Artisan Furansu Kitchen.

Check her out at

Gee, Cassandra! – Cassandra’s been my friend for years, and I’d love for her to get back in the game. She doesn’t write much anymore, but she’s got a lot to say about being an American girl in Madrid, finding love abroad and more.

Check her out here:

Spanish Sabores – Lauren married her language exchange partner down in Andalucía and now lives in Madrid and is a total badass entrepreneur with Devour Madrid food tours. I wanna be just like her when I grow up.

Her original blog is about Spanish cuisine and travel, falling in love, and all that fun stuff…

Check it out:

Wanderlicious – I’m an omnivore. I will eat literally almost anything. But for you plant-based types, you should check out Cepee (it rhymes with peppy) at her blog. She talks about food, principally vegetarian and vegan. Here’s the link:

Cepee is also the founder of Madrid Blogger Network – if you’re in town and want to stop by for a meeting sometime, there’s usually one every month.

Look for us on Facebook. The get-togethers are a lot of fun.

Alternative Travelers – Y’all know how much I love protein and cholesterol… if possible, together in the form of pork products (or steak). But I appreciate that not everyone is down for the chorizo. If you’re looking for vegan options, hey, that’s on you.

And I’m here to help… here’s Sam’s Ultimate Vegan Guide to Madrid. Sam and Veren are a couple and they talk about veganism, but also sustainability, housesitting and budget travel in general.

Anything else you think deserves to be included in the list of best Madrid blogs? Anything big topics I’m missing? Hit me up, right here on the contact form.

And have fun out there, kids.


Mr Chorizo.

P.S. I also make videos about Madrid and about people I know. You know, in my other job a a YouTuber. Here’s Dating Spanish Men with Nina from Brooklyn, and Welcome to Tetuán, a vlog about my exciting neighborhood here in the north of Madrid. Mostly, I make them for the benefit of my online English students so if you’re wondering: No, I don’t talk that slowly in “real life”. But you can have a look if you’d like. You might learn something too. Thanks!
