Food Lover's Guide to Malaga

Food Lover's Guide to Malaga

A culinary capital of southern Spain, warm and sunny Malaga serves up a combination of traditional Andalusian classics and local favorites made from some of the freshest Mediterranean ingredients. Don’t miss these iconic dishes and tasty food experiences during your visit to Malaga.

Must-Try Dishes

Malaga, along with the rest of Andalusia (Andalucía), is best known for its tapas, with options like albóndigas (spicy meatballs in tomato sauce), jamón (cured ham), cheeses, Spanish tortilla (a potato omelet), and patatas bravas (potatoes fried with chili and garlic). While these items feature on menus across Spain, Malaga visitors will find some local specialties as well. Ajo blanco, a Moorish-influenced version of gazpacho, is made from almonds, garlic, crusty bread, and olive oil. Another local favorite is espetos de sardinas, a wooden stake of sardines grilled over a wood fire and best eaten by the beach. Seafood lovers should also sample boquerones, deep-fried or marinated anchovies caught in the Bay of Malaga.

Must-Do Experiences

  • Lace up your shoes and hit the pavement to discover Malaga’s best tapas bars on a walking tapas tour through the heart of the city.

  • Peddle away some excess calories on a local wine and tapas bike tour of Malaga.
