El Museo Del Jamon
Located in several outposts all over Madrid, this is one of my favorite spots in all of Spain. The museum of ham as it translates into English celebrates serrano and Iberian hams displayed all over this cafe and restaurant with hoofs in. El museo offers breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as ham and cheeses to go. The location near Puerta Del Sol is where we started our day's and they offer several breakfast specials of ham(serrano) with or without cheese(manchego) as well as the famous zumo de naranja(house squeezed juice) and cafe or hot chocolate for abut $5 U.S. Standing at the counter with tourists and Madrilenos is unbeatable Spanish experience.
