MULAFEST LAUNCHES MADRID’S FIRST STREET FOOD FESTIVAL
Today sees the start of Mulafest, Madrid’s urban arts festival that runs until Sunday 29 June. This year sees an addition to the festival, “Street Food International”, Madrid’s first ever event to celebrate international street food, a trend that has been going from strength to strength in the Spanish capital.
Over four days, visitors to Mulafest can enjoy bites from around the world at very reasonable prices. One highlight is Mario Payán and Juan Alcaide’s oriental repertoire with dishes such as ngiri, udon noodles and oriental inspired broths, available in the Tattoo area, right next to Mulafest’s most popular party spot, La Isla.
An enormous food truck will also be serving up tasty hot dogs and sandwiches, one of which has been created by Chef Estanislao Carenzo, and will be accompanied by a unique artisan beer menu from Cervezas La Virgen.
Alternatively, opt for an “international hamburger” (choices range from beef to tofu and tuna), head to one of the many more traditional tapas stalls or top up on vitamins at the juice and shake bar.
Aside from the food, Mulafest is, of course, busy showcasing all other facets of urban arts. 2014 highlights include graffiti jam sessions, the tattoo convention that will see 150 tattoo artists descend on IFEMA, and skateboarding and BMX competitions, to name but a few.
