One cannot leave Spain without having some churros, made from fried dough pastry. It is sold during fiestas or as snacks by street vendors. Try it at San Gines, Madrid and don’t forget to dip it in some hot chocolate. Tapas is a must have in Spain, which basically means “small portion” and includes a large variety of appetizers and snacks which you can savour. From choppitos (batter fried squid), to olives, cheese, assorted grilled and fried meat, the ideal time for tapas, is to indulge in between meals. Spanish cuisine is an absolute treat, do make sure that you don’t miss out.
