Aye Yai Yai! Today we are talking about Vegetarian Tex-Mex food in Madrid. Madrid is so much more than Spanish food, and for this native Texan who is obsessed with variety and diversity in life, I am so happy to see more and more international options sprouting up in the city. Coming from one of the food capitals of the U.S., Houston, I crave food flavors from around the world, and being Texan I love our “national” cuisine, Tex-Mex. Top that off with being American, I expect large portions and for my food to come out fast. And that is just what we have in Madrid; 3 fast-casual chains that offer all the above.
