Despite Madrid is a melting pot of Spanish cultures, and that you will be able to find restaurants that specialize in gastronomy from all regions of Spain, there are some dishes which are typical “Madrileños”.
Cocido madrileño is Madrid´s best-known dishes. A chickpea stew served in many different formats, this is a great option to enjoy in winter, especially at some of the restaurants that specialize in cocido. Bocadillo de calamares is a cheap way to enjoy a simple lunch or dinner. A very simple dish can be delicious if all ingredients (squid,oil and bread) are of excellent quality. Callos a la madrileña: this is a beef tripe stew and many traditional restaurants are proud to serve “the best callos in Madrid”

There is no precise rule as to how much to tip in Spain. Spaniards only tip if they consider the service to be good. A 5% is normally considered a good tip. Having said this, some local waiters know tourists tip more than local Spaniards do and may expect more from foreigners.
