If you’re a foreigner living in Madrid, there are a lot of national and regional foods you have to try – but that’s not all there is. An entire world exists in Madrid, whether it is in music, cuisine, art or even people. This cosmopolitan city has plenty to offer you not only from its own culture, but also from other countries, like, for example, France.
Everybody thinks the French are a bit full of themselves, but we really don’t mind that when our bellies are full of their crepes, do we? They’re absolutely delicious and come with all different kinds of toppings and fillings – it’s no wonder that just like baguettes or croissants, they’ve made their way to pretty much every country in the world, Spain obviously included.
Alright, ShMadrid will stop making you hungry now – here’s where to find the best crepes in Madrid:

Le Comptoir de la Crepe
Whether you prefer savoury or sweet crepes, La Comptoir has what you’re looking for.
