1. Marbella: Food Tour
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.
