Let’s Eat in Granada!

The Cuisine of Granada represents the tradition of Arabic-Andalucian cuisine.

In Granada, Tapas are still seen as a gift of the house and many bars take more pride in their tapas than their selection of drinks. In many places it’s possible to eat a filling meal for the price of a couple small beers. That’s the reason why it’s really cheap outside in Granada.

The chocolate with churros are very popular in Granada. In almost all bars and cafés in Granada serves it for breakfast and snack.
