Gastronomic routes

Madrid’s cuisine is influenced by other parts of Spain but also still has its own traditions. Don’t forget to try cocido (chickpea casserole); it’s the most famous dish. If you have a sweet tooth then order torrijas for dessert (fried bread with honey or sugar).

In Madrid it’s custom to go bar-hopping while eating raciones (literally, servings). Don’t miss the chance to go out for tapas in the Salamanca neighbourhood where you’ll find many places with more imaginative, sophisticated tapas.
