Madrid Gastronomy

Since Felipe II made Madrid the capital of Spain, numerous recipes and influences from all the regions of the country entered in its kitchen. Today it is practically impossible to say which dishes are original, and which are imported. The dishes that are called "madrileño" in Spain are mainly hotpots, such as the well-known Cocido Madrileño with chick-peas. Among regional specialities have to be named the delicious Croquetas de Pollo y Jamón (chicken and ham croquettes), asparagus from Aranjuez, and the very typical Sopa de Ajo, a soup made of garlic. There are many dishes of lamb and veal, but - perhaps a bit surprising considering its geographic location - Madrid is a real paradise for the lovers of any kind of fish. It has the second biggest fish market in the world (behind Tokyo), and as well in shops as in many restaurants you will find an ample selection and extraordinary quality. Traditional sweets are the Roscos de Santo, which are made specially for for the Festival of San Isidro.
