The Cutest and Most Basic Thing to Do in Madrid

The cutest and most basic thing to do in Madrid is obvious. What comes to mind when I say, "melted dark chocolate, dough, and calories?"

It's easy.



This picture is documented evidence of my first-ever churro. On a cozy and chilly night, a few of my girlfriends and I checked out Chocolatería San Ginés, the oldest chocolatería in Madrid. It was cute and quaint, located in the center of Sol. Although crowded, I didn't feel trapped. The staff was inviting, and the kid at the register didn't say a word when I ordered twelve. 

Of course, every girl, basic and non-basic, takes a pic with a churro. It's kind of a thing. 

My conclusion on the product? Good not great. I personally felt the chocolate could have been darker and slightly more bitter. Still, I'd go back.


I don't expect this to be my last time eating chocolate con churros considering I only have a handful of months before they disappear from my life for a while. I'm currently in search of new basic foods to post. Stay tuned for next month!

Live Large and Sparkle.
