From the family of waffles and crepes, these stick like sweet things are eaten with molten dark chocolate. Madrid has some 100-year-old chocolatiers that only serve churros with sprinkled sugar and hot chocolate.

Tortilla Española

Eggs, potatoes, onion - the Spanish omelettes are so much more than the sum of its parts. The potatoes and onions are slow fried in olive oil then mixed with the beaten eggs for the flavours to mix before cooking. Add chorizo, ham, spinach, courgettes or whatever you have to hand to make a tasty meal out of next to nothing.
