In almost always sunny Málaga, located in southern Spain, there are a lot of places where you can enjoy the traditional Spanish dishes.
Gazpacho, a cold soup of vegetables and herbs, is for example a cool hors-d’oeuvre and a typical dish for the Andalusia region. Tinto de verano, also known as summer wine, is a hit among the traditional dishes. Consisting partly of red wine and some lemonade, this drink leaves a refreshing impression. But the real favourite among both tourists and Spaniards is the chocolate con churros.
While walking through the city, the chances are big that you will see lots of persons enjoy the typical Spanish breakfast throughout the entire day. The dish, consisting of thick chocolate milk and some sort of dough stick, is very popular as breakfast but is also perfect as a snack. Commonly done is dipping the churros in your chocolate milk, to add a little sweetness to the delicious dish. But the real question is, how did chocolate con churros became so popular?
Chocolate con churros is dated at the begin of the nineteenth century and was made in Madrid during the festivals. There, it became very popular because of the low costs of the dish. Later on it became a dish that was made throughout the whole year and in all the other places in Spain as well. Now it has become the phenomena we all know.
The students who take part in a Spanish course at our school are also getting the chance to taste enjoy this traditional dish. When travelling to Spain is almost a must to taste the chocolate con churros at least once. And when you don’t like the taste of chocolate, you could also order just the churros.
