Humanes is a gritty little industrial town located 30 km south of Madrid. It’s hardly on the tourist route. The guidebooks? Not a chance. But it’s here where chef Mario Sandoval has made a huge name for himself at familial Restaurante Coque. Earlier this year we were able to spend some time with him.
