El Segoviano Madrid – You will go for the roasts

restaurants
Restaurants

"El Segoviano" restaurant, in the center of Madrid, very close to the Atocha train station, has had the best Spanish cuisine for almost half a century...

Close to Atocha train station, El Segoviano stands as a beacon of traditional Spanish gastronomy. With a legacy spanning nearly five decades, this establishment offers a slice of Spain's rich culinary heritage, making it an ideal pitstop for tapas, especially for those journeying by train.

Hailing from Segovia, the restaurant brings forth the region's famed roasted delicacies. For those inclined towards a richer, more indulgent experience, the roasted pork is an absolute delight — it's my top pick! However, if you're veering towards a leaner choice, the lamb is impeccably done. Both options promise a crispy exterior that gives way to tender, succulent meat that effortlessly falls off the bone. Pair your choice of meat with roasted potatoes and a refreshing green salad for a meal that's both hearty and balanced.

Kickstart your culinary journey at the bar with an array of classic tapas. From the tangy pickled anchovies and spicy fried chorizo to the irresistible deep-fried pork belly and the creamy Serrano ham croquettes, there's a treat for every palate. For the more adventurous, the suckling lamb sweetbreads are a must-try!

To round off your dining experience, indulge in a slice of ponche segoviano. This traditional Segovian dessert, a delightful blend of sponge cake, marzipan, and custard cream, is the perfect sweet note to end on.

El Segoviano's affiliation with the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs in Spain, the world's esteemed gastronomic association, speaks volumes about its commitment to culinary excellence. This seal of approval assures diners of an unparalleled dining experience.
