Lonely Planet review

Just by the Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, this breezy, no-frills bar-eatery is a Madrid institution for its bocadillos (filled rolls) – the bocadillo de calamares is an old favourite – and no-nonsense raciones (large tapas servings). It’s also famous for chocolate con churros or porras (chocolate with deep-fried doughnuts) in the wee hours after a hard night on the tiles. There’s another branch in Chamberí.
