What to eat in Madrid?
From the porra to the tortilla, for breakfast, lunch or dinner… all through the day Madridian specialties, with their magic touch, are available from their extremely varied menu.
The madridians love breakfast, and above all, their tapas. Grilled shrimp, in their shell, or with garlic; mussels, steamed or in brine; anchovies in vinegar, are typical Madridian tapas, as well as croquettes and casseroles of all varieties can be found in almost every bar.
And at lunch time
The madridian stew and cow tripe are the most traditional dishes by far. Chickpea stew, with spinach and cod or lentils and chorizo, and baked beans are all sturdy dishes full of flavour.
It is worth mentioning that it is said that Madrid offers the best fish in Spain; the sea bream, hake and sea bass are what Madridians eat most. With respect to meat they have the classic steak or pork loins, but game meat is also highly regarded by the locals, such as boar, deer, partridge and pheasant.
Offal also plays an important role in the Madridian diet: chicken-tripe, gizzards, pig intestines etc. are all traditional dishes, as well as pickles, gherkins and olives…
