Chocolate and churros (sweet fritters) make a perfect combination, especially at this time of year, when temperatures drop and hot foods or drinks taste more pleasant than ever. Chocolate is also served with “porras”, a dish similar to churros but with a different shape and a dough made in a different way.
It is a deeply rooted tradition throughout Spain, including Madrid, and has spread to several Latin American countries. More than a gastronomic delight, having chocolate with churros is also a social event. Whether it’s for breakfast or afternoon snack, it’s a good opportunity to have a break from your daily work or city sightseeing to enjoy a good conversation around a table, and gather strength to continue the day.
