How to Find Cheap and Tasty Restaurants in Madrid

Are you visiting Madrid on a tight budget? The Spanish capital has literally countless options for those of you who don't want to break the bank but still want to eat well, and I'm talking real restaurants where you can sit down at a table, get served and enjoy your meal without no rush.

Many of the restaurants in Madrid serves great food. For, like, pocket change. The most important thing to remember when going out for a meal is to stay away from restaurants who are located nearby big tourist attractions. If they only cater to tourists they do not need to deliver great quality meals on a consistent basis, why bother? There will always come new tourists, and as long as they have a prime location the food is likely to be expensive in price, and below-average in taste. The best tip in order to get an inexpensive and tasteful meal is to notice if there's any locals eating in the restaurant. If there's plenty of Spanish people enjoying the food it's likely to be a good choice.

Museo del Jamon is an example of a good restaurant in Madrid, yes, the name is «Museo», but there is no curators, no headsets, no gift shop. Just ham. Everywhere. Yep, no shortage of ham here. Ham in every way, shape or form, hanging from the ceiling (kind of like an art exhibition), together with about another billion options in small portions (called raciones), best accompanied by round after round of beer. Here you should expect to expand your stomach (your mind, not so much) and get your fill of Spain's number one delicacy for very little money indeed.

The restaurant is present at two places in Madrid:

Carrera de San Jerónimo, 6

Metro Sol (L1, L2, L3)
