Spanish croissants suck, but there is hope

Seeing as how my go-to croissant place in Spain jumped the shark, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. Yes, I am a croissant dork and hunt them down everywhere, but Spain has proved an elusive hunting grounds for this buttered-up bread item.

Apparently, I am not alone:

Siendo la cocina española tan buena, siempre me ha sorprendido la capacidad que ha tenido este país para destruir el cruasán. [Being that Spanish food is so good, I am always amazed at the ability this country has had to destroy the croissant.]

But this fellow didn’t just roll over and give up like I’m wont to do. No, he put out a call and has received feedback as to the best croissants in Spain. He even went so far as to map it all in the Mapa del cruasán. I applaud the effort, but it already comes under some question given that while Mauri in Barcelona was good in the past, it’s gotten quite crappy. Still though, I am interested and will have to try out some of these spots when back Spain-side again.
