In addition, it is available for all kinds of palates, especially since simple dishes can sometimes be as delicious as a 5-star menu. You just have to mix in with the local gastronomy. We recommend simply trying the small inconspicuous taverns. Here you can sometimes find real pearls. Perhaps a simple bread with aioli, tomato and some olives, accompanied by a glass of wine. Even this simple combination will open up your appetite.
The secret is in the weather
While breathing in the salty coastal air, the food takes on a specific and unique flavor. While it is difficult to find them in your own country. Perhaps it has happened to you that a dish or an ingredient from Spain did not taste as good at home? The various hams from the region simply taste better in the salty air and local climate. The enjoyment begins with the famous climate of the Costa Blanca.
