Full description
Are you ready to discover the taste of Marbella? Try tapas and dishes that are less commonly experienced by tourists as you learn about the origins of local cuisine. To begin, meet your guide at the lighthouse. During the Marbella food tour, visit the beautiful beach, where contemporary buildings house many restaurants. You'll also walk to the top of the hill and see where the city was born. After the experience, your knowledge about local food culture will be a lot deeper than before and your belly will be full and pleased. Tastings included:  Pescaito frito: A mix of different types of fish (typically anchovies, acedias, hake, calamari and shrimps) that is fried after being tarnished in flour. Once the fish is ready, salt and fresh lemon are added. Salmorejo casero: Salmorejo is the Andalusian version of gazpacho. It is typically eaten in summer to refresh one’s palate. This creamy cold soup is made of tomatoes, bread crumbs, vinegar from Jerez, olive oil, and salt. Flautitas de pollo con guacamole: Dough rolls filled with chicken and garnished with guacamole, tomatoes, basil, and sour cream. Cured acorn-fed pork sausage (chorizo de bellota). Served with bread and olives. Berenjenas de almagro: Aubergines cooked in oil with cumin, pepper, sweet paprika, salt, garlic, white wine vinegar, and water. Served with bread. Alcachofa aliñada: Garlic artichokes (artichokes cooked and marinated with salt, lemon, garlic, parsley, eggs, capers, pepper, and oil). Served with bread. Croquetas caseras de jamón: These delicious croquettes are cooked with bechamel sauce (flour, butter, milk and nutmeg), salt, pepper, onion, olive oil, ham, eggs, and bread crumbs. With these ingredients, the croquettes are made in their typical oval shape and fried in hot oil. Ice cream: 2 scoops in cup or cone (normal cone, wafer, or chocolate cone). Homemade ice cream, produced by a historic and traditional ice saloon in Marbella.
