A good way to start off in Madrid is with churros and chocolate. Chocolateria San Gines has been open since 1894. This place is up a little side street.
Your order is placed at the counter and then you can take a seat at the many tables. The interior is made up of an ornate marble and green theme. The walls are adorned with photos; many are of famous people who have been to this churros and chocolate establishment. The churros spirals can be seen made in the kitchen area.
Chocolateria San Gines gives you the perfect combination of churros and chocolate. Sticks of freshly made churros and a small cup of thick liquid chocolate was served by the friendly staff. The hot chocolate was not overly sweet and was easily drinkable. The warm churros dipped into the chocolate was so moreish.
A bonus of Chocolateria San Gines is that it is open 24 hours a day. This means that you can satisfy your churros and chocolate craving at any time of the day, no matter whether it is day or night.
