So, therefore, after posting about the monuments and sights of my beloved Madrid will go into the places of shopping and restaurant with a series Restaurant: XXX Madrid or Shopping: XXX Madrid. Hope you enjoy them and do try them when visiting Madrid the food and shopping is an experience to behold in lovely Madrid. For lack of creativity ,I will copy this first paragraph into the subsequents posts! ::)

Now this is one of the all time traditional restaurants of Madrid. I have come here for zillion times with the family as a young boy and then repeat visits. I took my sons as it would be a different place for them to soak up the Spanish cider tradition and the Asturians very popular around my previous places of living.  Enjoy it as we did with plenty of tortillas, chorizos, the great Mahou five stars beer , and cider!!! to finish!



Casa Mingo is a popular restaurant / tavern in Madrid famous for serving roast chicken along with bottles of cider (one of its specialties). The dishes offered correspond to traditional Madrid cuisine with trends in Asturian cuisine. It is located on the Paseo de la Florida on the banks of the Manzanares River, next to the Hermitage of San Antonio de la Florida.


This house was inaugurated by Domingo García González in 1888 in the space that extends the Campo del Moro, occupying the old materials warehouse. It was a place where Asturians worked in the old North Station (Principe Pio Station). This place gradually became a meeting point at the beginning of the 20C of Asturians who emigrated to Madrid. The splendor of the tavern is due to that time. It was customary at the beginning of the 20C to go as a family to eat at Casa Mingo, a tradition that continues today.


The tavern has two floors. The ground floor is very spacious. At the top there is a terrace with benches where you can eat. In the spring and summer months, terraces are installed to serve a large clientele. The tables are made of wood and tiled floors providing a traditional atmosphere maintained since its inauguration in the 19C
