Always first on any list of where to try huevos rotos in Madrid is Taberna Los Huevos de Lucio in La Latina neighborhood. This local favorite is actually run by the children of famed restaurateur Lucio Blázquez.  The original Lucio first arrived in Madrid in 1945 at the age of 12 to work at the Meson del Segoviano. Years later, the owner sold Lucio the business and in 1974 Casa Lucio opened its doors. Now, his children carry on his legacy just a few doors down at Los Huevos de Lucio. The secret to their huevos rotos? Top quality potatoes, olive oil and jamón.
