I love a good tradition just about as much as I love a good sandwich + a cute idea. Throw those things together and I don't know what to do with myself. Cue le dinersaur. Fancy Sandwich Friday. Adorable Olivia's adorable sandwich business, le dinersaur, delivers even MORE adorable lunches straight to wherever you are (assuming you're in phx!). Are you getting the picture? It's ALL ADORABLE and irresistible. The best thing about working from home most Fridays is my fancy sandwich delivery. The menu changes every week (she posts it here and on her insta each Monday). You send an email with your order, and magically a perfect lunch is delivered to your home or office. Everything is amazing. The bread is home baked. You get a cute quote with your order. And a tea cookie in a HANDMADE PAPER BOX. C'mon. Come. On. If you're not within the delivery area, find a friend who is! Find a spot to meet. Shoot, come to my house! I guess what I'm saying is, lunch doesn't get any better than a le dinersaur delivery and I want everyone I know to know it. Do it, do it, do it!
grab the city's best tostas at jurucha (this was a gem! you stand at the counter to eat, and point at what looks good to order) + be sure to save at least one of your meals for wandering around mercado de san miguel (we went twice it was so good). all your foodie dreams will come true.
visit the el rastro neighborhood (especially on flea market day!). have breakfast at el secuestrador de besos, wander around, and save time to look around at mercado de la cebada (an old market reimagined with everything from DJ's to ham to art projects).
if the weather's nice, grab a blanket and some snacks and head to parque del retiro (a highlight!).
it's worth the euros to head to circulo de bellas artes + spend a sunset on their rooftop bar. the views are exceptional and the crowd is great. skip the food, but grab a drink and a prime spot! it's definitely a great way to end your adventures!
