Where to comer:

While you’re visiting Plaza Mayor, you could get hungry! Y si tienes hambre, no best thing than to choose what to eat. Plaza Mayor has an endless amount of restaurants, bars, taperías and fast food!

Put that burger in my belly!

You could get a hamburger at the famous ‘’EL KIOSKO’’: An affordable and tasty burger restaurant. Plaza Mayor even inserts it in the top 5 Burger restaurants. Yummy!

Crazy about Italian food!

Or 100 montaditoswhat about an Italian pasta at the restaurant ‘’LA TAGLIATELLA’’ ? : The name of the place is an Italian word for a traditional kind of pasta. It’s a long pasta but larger than spaghetti. Are you getting hungry yet?

Did someone say TACOS?

If you want to try something completely different, you could choose ‘’TACO BELL’’.   Go here for a Mexican taco, burrito or quesadilla! But be aware that some of their sauces are super  spicy! 😉

Let’s go Spanish!

In case you’re not interested in any of these international plates, no te preocupes! Plaza Mayor has many Spanish traditional options like ‘’100 MONTADITOS’’: Montaditos are typically Spanish bocadillos, with the difference that they are very small. This cerveceria offers you an infinite amount of bocadillos on their menu! You won´t find only bocadillos but also delicious tapitas para compartir!

 

The Yelmo Cinema

Now that you have been shopping, you ate something and looked around in all those nice tiendas, it’s still not time to go home!

To end your day at Plaza Mayor the best way possible, is going to the Yelmo Multisala Cinema.

This cinema offers a large choice of movies every day. It’s a nice option to spend some time with your family, your friends or even with your girl/boyfriend. You could watch a romantic movie together 😉

So.. ¡Vamos al cine! 

VOSE-cinema

We know though, that it could be hard for you to watch a whole movie in Spanish, but relax! The Yelmo Cinema often gives its clients the possibility to watch the movie in VOSE (version original subtitulada al Español). If you think you’re not ready yet to watch an entire movie in Spanish, watch it in (probably) English with Spanish subtitles.

This is also a great way to improve your Spanish! And to do so, check also our study materials. And who knows.. maybe next time you will feel ready to watch the movie in Spanish, with your native friends! 😉

It sounds cool, doesn’t it?

We think Plaza Mayor is a great place to spend time. Es imposible que te aburres! 😉 And it’s also a good chance to practice your Spanish! There is no better way than a mall to practice any kind of vocabulary: Clothes, food, formal ways to ask something, body parts, transportation, ecc… Try out our quizzes to see how good you are with these topics!
