One of the most attractive and fun things you can do in Madrid is to roam around its streets looking for many unique flavors. Even though here you can enjoy the cuisine of all five continents, Spain’s capital stands out as the ideal European city to dive into the succulent - and booming – Ibero-American cuisine. With 500 years of common history and an emigration very proud of their roots and with a highly entrepreneurial spirit make Madrid a perfect place to look for the Ibero-American cuisine.

Does your mouth water when you hear the words pumpkin flower, nopales and chili peppers? Don’t worry. In Madrid, it is possible to indulge in the recipes of a Mexican restaurant. 

Loyal to the tradition of Mexican food is Entre Suspiro y Suspiro, located in an old house, decorated with Aztec motifs and which also boasts the widest variety of tequilas in the whole of Europe (Opera Metro).

Tepic is another Mexican place and you should check out its bar and dining room. They grow their own produce and you will love their cocktails prepared on site.

More options? For example Taquería del Alamillo (La Latina underground station) that has two restaurants and a tiendita (little store) offering Mexican products; or Cantina Roo (Gregorio Marañón), a restaurant and bar offering new Mexican cuisine. 

Also Salón Cascabel (Colón subway) located in the Gourmet Experience of El Corte Inglés on Serrano Street; Gracias Padre (Lista subway) where you can enjoy a unique connection between food and Mexican culture; and Chihuahua Tragos y Tacos (Camino del Cura, 10), a modern and close brother of MALPASO, a space that marked Mexican gastronomy in Madrid. It is also worth mentioning Puntarena (San Bernardo Metro), located in La Casa de México, with 18 years specialising in Mexican seafood with a pioneering tequila bar. The restaurants, Regañadientes (Calle del Almirante, 24) and IZTAC can also be highlighted, with a gastronomic proposal designed by the chef, Nacho Oropeza.
