When people go to Spain they usually think about the Spanish food, and in Madrid the most typical thing to eat are Churros. The only problem is that I usually hear bad comments about them because most people dont really know where to go. Chocolateria San Gines is the absolute must stop place to get Churros and hot chocolate. The restaurant has been serving Churros for over 100 years since 1894 and is now franchising there brand in Japan. Partying late? the best time to eat a churro is at 6 am when ever one is coming out of the clubs. So remember to go to Chocolateria San Gines they have the best Churros in town! 

Price:
About 3 Euros for Churros and Chocolate

How to get there:
in the center
