Same location since 1894
If you ever go to Madrid, there’s a very authentic dessert shop: Chocolateria San Gines. Located on the same spot since 1894, this place is famous for their worldwide known Churros and hot chocolates.
Experience the taste of chocolate
What they call as Churros is basically strips of dough that are made by frying sour yeasty dough; therefore, the outer layer gets crispy, whereas the inner side remains soft. After waiting for a long queue at Chocolateria San Gines, you won’t think that the amount of dough they make is enough, as leave alone meters, you need kilometers of churros to feed this queue. So, they serve you these beautifully fried dough strips with hot chocolate. Their hot chocolate is mainly made of bitter chocolate, it’s dark and the sugar level is quite high. The consistency of this drink is darker than the hot chocolates we’re used to. The reason is because you dip churros in and eat them together. So here, hot chocolate doesn’t serve as a drink, but rather acompany for churros.
If you ever visit Madrid and crave for sweets, then I recommend you to come here and experience this unique taste. You’ll understand the real reason behind the success of this place running for years in its nostalgic atmosphere…
