(Many thanks to Intríngulis Petit Piaf Hotel for letting us take the group photo in their room, one of our favorites!!)
/Foodies + Houdinis = Foodinis/
In 2014 two of us made our first escape room and we were so delighted that we convinced the rest of the group to try it out. How could it be otherwise, we ended up addicted.
We love playing in rooms where the love and hours dedicated to the decoration and ambiance can be felt and great taste for the detail of the creators can be seen. We care more about the ideas and love put by other escape rooms lovers rather than the wealth and special effects without a soul. We do sound like hippies, what can we do?
We are also gluttons. We are big fans of home-made horchata (tigernut milk), special donuts and stuffed croissants. However, we also love savoury food. We enjoy both the famous greasy burger restaurants as well as the sophisticated restaurant of exotic cuisine.
Hence the name, we are foodies emulating the great escapist Houdini. The Foodinis.
We are a very heterogenous group and we do not coincide in tastes and topics, so here you can see a summary of each one of us and our preferences.
Ravenclaw. She prefers the immersive escapes especially the ones with surprising turns. She does not like the themes of war or terror. Purple is her favorite colour, as well as traveling and laughing at the everyday. Visit her blog of illustrated stories to know more about her.
Feline lover and passionate about history, in another life he would have liked to be Indiana Jones. He loves adventure escape rooms and those that introduce actors during the game. He misses those times of Monkey Island or King’s Quest.
Escape and eat
When we meet to play an escape room we always end up having a snack or dinner … or both! So we take the opportunity to update ourselves and also to make comments on the game we just played, review the riddles we liked the most, etc.
Our website comes to share our opinions of the different escape rooms we have made, as well as the restaurants, bakeries, horchaterías (yes, we do have dedicated places to drink tigernut milk!) and ice cream parlors neighboring each escape room. We hope it can serve as a reference for other groups of players.
How we vote for the Foodinis ranking
Our reviews are totally subjective, but we try to make our escape rooms ranking as objective as possible. Each escape room is valued by all the people who have played it.
In our ranking you can see a more detailed explanation about the aspects we evaluate and the valuation system.
Our policy is one of total transparency. The reviews reflect our personal opinions and all criticism will be constructive. We do not receive money or incentives of any kind to alter our ranking or our reviews of the different escape rooms.
If a creator invites us to play or presents a new room to know our opinion before being opened to the public, this info will be written in the review. That will not affect our evaluation in any way.
The restaurants or patisseries that we recommend are listed because we liked them at that time, or that we often visited as clients.
