Chocolatería San Ginés, Madrid

Spain

Extract from Let Me Tell You About Madrid.

The tourist trail leads directly to this door, and there are the photographs of visiting celebrities to prove it – Christopher Lee, Paloma Picasso and Maradona among them. Its cool white marble interior feels opulent, while efficient, slightly world-weary, staff guide visitors through the process of ordering chocolate con churros – a fried-dough pastry served with thick hot chocolate, almost pudding-like in consistency and less sweet than one might think, to dip them into. A single order of six churros and a cup of chocolate between two should suffice for breakfast or a very late bite after a night of revels.
