An awful lot of cerveza, sangria and vino is being consumed this weekend. But what will help get fans get back on their feet in the morning?

English fry up

Everyone knows nothing clears up a hangover like a full English but can they found in Madrid? Head to an irish pub and you’ll find they are on offer all day. But don’t expect to get a proper English cup of tea.

Huevos Rotos con jamon

Basically,  fried egg, chips and ham – and the closest Spain has to a full English breakfast. You can’t go wrong with this one.

Churros

This is what Madrileños go for in the early hours on their way back from a night out. Hot crispy, doughy churros, sprinkled in sugar and dipped into a cup of thick chocolate. Only for those with a sweet tooth.

Tortilla

The Spanish classic. What could be better than egg and potatoes. Ideally served in a crusty white baguette!

It's official: Spain’s best tortilla is served at this Madrid bar

Calamari

The Calamari sandwich – Bocadillo de Calamares – is a Madrid version of a fishfinger sandqich..  Squid, coated in batter and deep-fried then squished between a white baguette. Street food at its best!

Orejas

Not for the faint hearted this one. Oreja is crispy, crunchy and just a wee bit gristly. It’s pan fried pigs ears, sprinkled with salt and paprika and it’s delicious. A big step up on a pork scratching.
