The chain restaurant with the interesting name, Museo del Jamon was one of our favourite restaurants in Madrid and we ate here numerous times.
As you can tell from the name it's speciality is ham though there are also good selections of cheese, wine and pork as well. It's a very popular place with the locals and most of them eat at the counter, tapas style. The food is very good value and they also serve takeaways which can be useful for picnics.
We visited two of the restaurants, on Calle de Alcala and on Paseo del Prado, though there are many more branches around the city.
Museo del Jamon this is a net of shops-restaurants with excellent choice od spanish delicious ham (jamon). sausages (salchicio) and chees. You can eat there inside or get the food takeaway.
Favorite Dish: of cours the tasty jamon - the sandwich with ham is called bocadillo jamon
You can drink here too cerveza ( beer), very good is the local beer Mahou.
Very good is too paella and tortilla.
Those are all over Madrid - I wanted to try this restaurant but I didn't even have to look for one, they seemed to find me constantly!
This is a very popular place and it's definitely worth a stop. You can eat at the bar, sit a table or buy foods to cook at home. There are hams hanging from the wall, which is surprising at first, especially when you see employees climb up a ladder to get one of them!
The food was cheap: we got two bodadillos and two cafés con leche for 5€.
If you are going to Madrid, you should go, at least, to have a look at this shop! Woow
You will find all the varieties of "jamon", on a plate or buy it to take away. I would recommend to eat it in! I still can smell the gammons! yummy!
Si estás por ir a Madrid, no podés perderte de ir,o al menos, darle un vistazo a éste negocio! Woow

Favorite Dish: Gammon, Jamón, Gammon, Jamon
I was strolling down the Gran Via, so I decided to give it a try, as I have always been a fan of jamón Serrano and chorizo. It was totally amazing, the food was good, and everything you can imagine with ham in it, they sell it. I personally liked very much the chorizo caliente bocadillo, which is cooked chorizo inside a crunchy bun, kinda like a baguette. And the bocadillo de jamón y queso also is good. Yopu can't miss this place, it's full of hams eveywhere, so it's easy to spot.
Favorite Dish: Bocadillo de jamón y queso, bocadillo de chorizo caliente
There are many "Museo del Jamon" in Madrid. You can eat inside or on the sidewalk, the service is like a fast food place, but better.
I if you want to seat on the sidewalk much better specially in Spring time.
Favorite Dish: Of course their Ham, whether is Serrano Ham or Iberico Ham. You will wish these hams grow in trees. They are absolutely delicious. I learnes the difference between a Bocadito and a Sandwich...
Where can you get two ham and cheese sandwiches, potato tortilla (similar to a potato quiche), cerveza and two cafe con leches for $8.20 Euro?! And the food tastes good!
Note: If you're a vegetarian, this might not be the best place for you to eat!
Favorite Dish: Jamon mixto on croissant.
Museo del Jamon is a chain of deli/cafe/restaurants in Madrid, which appear to sell every type of deli-style meat available.
We had a huge breakfast at the one in Plaza Mayor, sitting in the sun and people watching.
Favorite Dish: the jamon of course!
This is a must to visit for anyone coming to Madrid. In the first floor you will find a take-away area and a bar for fast style tapas, in the lower ground you can sit for a longer meal.
Options are extensive, food is quite fresh and tasty.
Best place to eat if on a budget. They are quite fast too! Except for paella which they take some time to prepare.
Favorite Dish: Calamari Bocadillo! Fried calamari as filling in a baguette. 2.30 Euros
Hot Chocolate and Churros. Don't forget to sprinkle sugar over the churros if you have a sweet tooth. Very thick chocolate as well. 1.30Euros. Cheap! Other places cost slightly more than 2Euros.
Seafood Paella for two is 10.90Euros. Portion is humongous! Probably takes 4-5 ppl to finish the whole dish.
