A citywide poll for the best croquetas (croquettes) in Madrid would see half of those polled voting for Casa Julio and the remainder not doing so only because they haven’t been yet. They’re that good that celebrities and mere mortals from all over Madrid come here, along with the crusty old locals.

They come to sample the traditional jamón (ham) variety or more creative versions such as spinach with gorgonzola. Strangely, the place acquired a certain celebrity when U2 chose the bar for a photo shoot a few years back.
