  1. I just got back from a trip to, among other places, Madrid. My travel diary (including restaurants and some maps) is here:

    In La Latina, you should check out Chocolatería Muñiz for churros con chocolate. The chocolate isn't as good as some other places, but the churros are wonderful. It's also a really interesting bar, and they serve some tapas too.

    Tienda de Vinos in Chueca has really great traditional/home cooking. I've got a few other descriptions of places in my diary, too.

    If you are going to make a trip down to Toledo, which I recommend, check out La Abadia, or for a more upscale meal try the tasting menu at Adolfo (

    1. Both times I've been in Madrid, one of the best meals was at Suite on Peligros de las Virgins, or something like that. Looks like more of a disco, but the food is great.
