Málaga travel tips

1) Go to the Mercado Central de Atarazanas for grocery shopping in Málaga

It is a central food market in the area, built in the 19th century. The stalls offer a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, spices, etc. Taste some tapas and fresh ‘pescaíto’ (small fried fish) in the bars or just stroll through to feel the atmosphere. Note that some sellers might double or triple the amount you request and even raise the price per unit. Brace yourself and hold your ground to save money!

2) Try Gazpachuelo Malagueño and espeto in Málaga

Gazpachuelo Malagueño should not be confused with gazpacho, famous cold tomato soup. It is a fisherman’s dish, including mayonnaise, egg yolk, fish and shrimp. Espeto is sardines, skewered and roasted over a barbecue pit. Most likely, you will find it on one of the beaches around the city. Just grab yourself a cold drink to wash it down and enjoy!

3) Look for a menu of the day at Málaga restaurants to keep your bill low

Many cafes and restaurants in Málaga, off the tourist track, offer cheap menú del día. For instance, the price for lunch, including the first course, main course, coffee or dessert, may start at €8. Note, however, that there are some great restaurants in Málaga where you can get a gourmet three-course lunch for less than €20. Indulging your inner connoisseur should cost you much!
