The Best Street Food Establishments In Madrid

Madeleine Bazil

In a city in which a meal traditionally consists of a couple of glasses of wine, conversation, tapas, and more, some entrepreneurial Madrileños are embracing the global trend of street food in an effort to make food fun, affordable, and easy to grab on-the-go. Read on for the best street food establishments in Madrid.


1. El Capricho Extremeño

Restaurant, Spanish, Fast Food, Mediterranean

A weekend wander through the Rastro flea market will put you in the queue for this efficient and cheap street food joint, the most popular in the city. Items served here include Spanish favorites such as toast with assorted toppings including prawns, vegetables, squid, mushrooms, jamón, and more.

Zoo Pura Fruta

This cheerful food truck, appearing at the monthly Madreats food truck market, serves up delicious juices and smoothies for health-conscious customers. Using only fresh produce and making everything to order, a green juice from this intricately decorated truck is like a breath of fresh air.

El Kiosko

This gastrobar in Madrid boasts three venues, but if you’re too far away from all of them, visit their food trucks. The owners have renovated two vintage Citroën H-Vans— nicknamed Ramona and Manuela— in order to travel around the city serving up their famous burgers, Mahou beer bread, and hot dogs made with authentic German sausage. Follow the trucks’ whereabouts at twitter.

For a one-of-a-kind culinary experience, head to Kebao for their highly original takes on Chinese bao buns. Filled with top-quality local chicken and beef, topped with veggies, and drizzled with funky sauces, this is the most unique bao you will likely ever eat.

Kebao, Madreat, AZCA, entrance by Paseo de la Castellana 89 by Orense 16 or through Central Commercial Moda Shopping, Madrid, Spain



Tasty sandwiches filled with smoked meats are the name of the game at this food truck, the brainchild of Top Chef participant Jesús Almagro. They make for a perfectly easy and filling lunch on the run.
