In the centre of Madrid, next to Puerta del Sol, there is a great selection of restaurants, cafés, bars, fast-food restaurants and eateries in general where you can refill your batteries.
Today we are going to visits some of the most celebrated and famous temples of food in Madrid.
One of these temples is Casa Lucio in Cava Baja, 35. The stars in its menu are cocido (a stew with chickpeas, potatoes and pork’s meat), fried eggs, hake or steak.
If you find a table it may be that you will be surprised when next to you sits a famous Real Madrid football player, a member of the royal family like King Don Juan Carlos himself, models like Kate Moss or actresses like Paz Vega. It is a classic venue, where customers bring the glamour with them.
In Calle Jovellanos, 3 you will find one of the best Basque cuisines in the area, restaurant El Txoko.
Their main specialties are cod souflet, oven baked black pudding with apple and also anchovies with olive oil. Don’t forget to eat these dishes with Txacoli, a white wine with an excellent flavour that goes especially well with fish.
