Madrid gastronomy is one of the strengths of Madrid. A carefully varied menu that is used (and a lot) in the form of tapas in the bars and restaurants of the city. We already know that the best known of its dishes is the famous ‘cocido madrileño’, but we are going to take a look at the 8 most typical dishes of Madrid.

Madrid stew

It is a letter of presentation of the gastronomy of Madrid. Soup, chickpeas, vegetables and meat! to lick your fingers. I leave you the recipe HERE

Madrid-style tripe

It is another of the emblems of the city of Madrid. It has an aspect of a rural dish, since it is a classic offal dish, such as callus, blood sausage, etc. I leave you HERE the recipe:

Squid sandwich
