We made it a point to visit Chocolateria San Gines as my mom spoke so highly of it. In addition, it came out in TV as a great place to check out in Spain. The line was fast, it was very cold and they have...More

I really have nothing to compare these churros to, except churros I have eaten at Mexican restaurants in the US. But, I can say that the churros themselves were very light and crispy, not greasy at all. The chocolate for dipping was good enough to...More

You may have heard of hot chocolate before....you know, that warm milk and cocoa mixture we grew up on? It, this ain’t that. This is a cup of hot....liquid...chocolate, into which you dip warm freshly made churros. For a chocolate lover it is simply wonderful.

Trying chocolate churros is a must in Spain. I tried once in Barcelona once here. I don’t felt it was more special or any better than the other place. Line was not long and moved quickly.

Classic Churros & Chocolate. Note, you order at the counter and then wait for a table. The line moves quickly.... no worries.

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as

we went in the evening. it was busy, but we got served pretty quickly. you need to go in and order, then they bring it out to you. at first, we thought you sit at a table and they would take your order there.
