Madrid - cuisine

Madrid is a melting pot for the cuisines from all over the peninsula. A good number of dishes, however, are typical. Among them, the cocido madrileño; a stew combining chickpeas with vegetables (cabbage, celery, carrots, turnips and potatoes) and chicken, beef and pork, which is turned into a huge succulent meal. Madrid's sweet tradition can be seen in its desserts; from torrijas (a type of French toast), typical in the springtime and linked to Holy Week, to the barquillos (rolled wafers) and bartolillos con crema (a type of small pie with custard).
In Madrid, as well as in the rest of Spain, the tapa (savoury morsels of a variety of dishes served as appetizers) is an old gastronomic tradition. You can find numerous establishments specialized in serving these tapas. "Ir de tapeo" (going out for tapas) is a tradition; hundreds of bars scattered throughout the streets of Madrid serve a tapa accompanied by a small glass of wine or beer.
