It is weird that one of the most representative dishes in Madrid is made from maritime food (squid)… But you cannot leave Madrid without tasting this delicacy. It may be similar to reach La Rioja and not having a glass of wine. The city centre holds most of the oldest bars that have fed people from Madrid (called gatos, which means cats) and visitors for years. However, each one in its own way. Today we visit some of the most famous and delicious bars where you can try squid sandwiches in Madrid.
The sandwiches here are undoubtedly one of the most popular and tastiest. They prepare it with a thin, non-greasy flour, achieving an extraordinary result. They have a wide terrace and a lounge where you can enjoy every bite. This place is ideal to relax while eating one of the best sandwiches in Madrid at the same time you enjoy this nice square. Is there a better offer?
This bar very close to the Plaza Mayor is also a must. Their sandwiches are excellent and include a great number of squids inside. Furthermore, make the most of your time there and try some of the portions they offer such as the patatas bravas.
Three generations have been selling squid sandwiches in La Campana (although it used to be called something else). It is said that they are some of the most delicious and, taking in account the number of people who goes there every day, we do not exagerate. Its wide and crunchy bread is always filled with yummy squids of different sizes.
La Ideal is a small bar near the Plaza Mayor. Its most famous dish is of course the squid sandwich. You will probably try it outside the bar since it is usually crowded. It is also worth a visit because of the funny atmosphere and the good service.
El Brillante is located near the Reina Sofía Museum. It is a very popular bar, specially for those who looks for a delicious squid sandwich after partying. It opens early in the morning and closes late at night, so any time is good to go. It is worth mentioning that is the most expensive one (6,50€ beverage included). The good news is that you can choose the kind of bread.
The last bar of our list is located at the arcades of the Plaza Mayor and it is another great option to try this delightful sandwich. The local is bigger than the previous ones and it also has a terrace to enjoy this delicacy. Moreover, they include other traditional dishes in their menu.
