Well… this is certainly a bit overdue. However, if you’ve read my most recent post about apologising as a blogger then you’ll know that I’m no longer feeling guilty about taking much-needed blogging breaks. Back in August you might remember me mentioning about my 21st birthday trip to Malaga as one of my monthly favourites. Inspired by my trip, and the amazing food I tried whilst over there, I got to thinking that it might be interesting to do a post about some of my favourite foodie spots. I’ve already written a foodie’s guide to my home city of Liverpool so why not make Malaga the next one in my little series?!
El Tapeo de Cervantes, Calle Carretería
Let me just start by saying that my trip to El Tapeo de Cervantes completely made the holiday for me. Being a huge foodie, I really appreciate great cooking when I taste it. El Tapeo de Cervantes definitely delivered in this department. I don’t think I’d ever eaten anything to such a high standard until I ate hear. Long story short, their food kind of blew my mind. A definite must visit when you’re over there. One tip however is to book in advance because it’s a tiny restaurant!
Meson Lo Gueno, Calle Marín García
Honestly, I think I visited Meson Lo Gueno approximately 5 times in my 9-day holiday. It was THAT good. One of my favourite aspects of Spain is the casual dining experience. I love being able to have a glass of wine and a tapas sat at the bar. Meson Lo Gueno was the perfect place to do this. Whether it be in the afternoon, after a relaxation on the beach or late in the evening, it was such a great spot.
Central Beers Craft Beer, Calle Cárcer
Now before you all say, “but Faye why would you go to a craft beer bar when you’re in the middle of Spain??“, have you never been on holiday and missed that little bit of home before? I’m someone who loves to fully immerse themselves in culture when they’re on holiday. However, sometimes I do miss that bit of home when I’m travelling. Surely I can’t be alone in feeling like this! Anyway, located just around the corner from where we stayed, Central Beers was such a go-to for us when we wanted a quick drink in the later afternoon/evening. I’m a huge fan of a flavoured beer and Central Beers definitely did not disappoint in this department. Their Lindemans cherry beer was such a staple of mine while I was away, as was the house red wine of course! (I was in Spain after all!)
These were just a few of the many amazing eateries and bars that are on offer in Malaga. I could’ve easily written about ten different spots but, as I’m sure your stomachs are rumbling just reading this, I cut it down to a select three. In true Female Original style I just had to include a photo or two of myself enjoying a lovely beverage. These were taken on our final night in the lovely city. (spot the Calamita jewellery!)
Have you ever been to Malaga before? What were some of your favourite spots? I’d love to know for the next time I take a trip over there – whenever that might be!
