November 18, 2018

I have updated this list of places to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal in Madrid for 2019. There are some spots that I cannot confirm if they are doing it this year or not. It's all specified below. 

One of the things that helps me keep my memories of California alive is to celebrate certain American traditions in Spain. My favorite is Thanksgiving because apart from taking the time to be thankful for what we've got, it celebrates all things fall that I love so much: the colors of fall foliage, pumpkins, being at home warm and cozy... I have never cooked a full traditional Thanksgiving meal but I incorporate some recipes to our regular meals, I make pumpkin pie and I decorate the house accordingly.

If you are Spanish and would like to try a traditional Thanksgiving meal or you are a homesick expat, you can find plenty of restaurants that offer Thanksgiving dinner in Madrid this week. Today's post is a list of wonderful restaurants that celebrate Turkey day. Click on the name of the restaurant to see the menu and make reservations.

Do you want to celebrate at home? If you prefer something low key with friends at home, Taste of America has your favorite American products waiting for you. It was the first shop in Madrid to specialize in American products. On their website, you'll find various locations throughout Madrid.
If preparing the whole thing is too much for you, organize a pot-luck and have everyone bring a dish.

Black Friday has become increasingly popular in recent years too, you will find discounts on most shops during this week. Bear in mind that the discounts won't be as good as in the US. Here you will only find 20-30% off.
