Google a place on where to eat churros in Madrid and there’s one that stands out: Chocolateria de San Gines. It’s in an alley so it would be a bit difficult to find. But if you ask the locals around Puerta del Sol, they know where it is. It’s a cafe both popular to the tourists and the locals. I found this place on my second day in the city but I didn’t get in because the queue was insane! I’m impatient when I’m hungry. 😀
The cafe is always busy. So, good luck finding a table. 😀
Perhaps, the most coveted tables are the ones outside.
Don’t just try their delicious, freshly-made churros.
It’s much better when it’s paired up with their thick, dark and strong hot chocolate! Yum!
And oh yeah, dunk that churros deep, deeper, deepest! 😉
When you’re bloated, head to Plaza Mayor. It’s just 5 minutes walk from the cafe. Outside the west end corner of Plaza Mayor, check out the following: Botin Restaurant (the oldest in the World and mentioned in Hemingway’s “The Sun Also Rises”and Las Cuevas Luis de Candelas Restaurant (a themed restaurant named after Spain’s Robinhood).
