The cold makes us want to try some cocido, although a true local from Madrid can eat it no matter what time of the year it is. Although apparently simple and with an unknown origin, the cocido is a dish from Madrid that is surrounded by liturgy and tradition, whose recipe has been improved after being passed down the generations ladder.
A great restaurant to enjoy a nice cocido, in a traditional atmosphere and without paying a small fortune, is Casa Jacinto, a restaurant close to the Senate and whose waiters are dressed in old-fashioned white with a broad smile on their faces. For 12 euros per person approximately, you can have a generous serving of cocido, and you will not need another one. It is worth booking a table in advance, since the restaurant fills up with its regular customs. Undoubtedly, a sure culinary victory for all visitors.
