This is a cold soup made with raw vegetables. An ideal dish for a hot and humid day, it is prepared by mixing tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, onions, garlic, and olive oil.

This delicious offering is usually paired with bread and butter.


Paella is a rice-based dish that has been a traditional Spanish offering since the 19th century.

It includes short-grain rice, saffron, green beans, rosemary, and a variety of vegetables. Sometimes it can also contain peppers, garlic, and cayenne pepper.

This dish is cooked over an open fire and has a slightly earthy, sweet and musky flavour. It is a must-try in Spain.


Croquette is a favourite vegeterian dish in Spain.

Usually served as a side dish or fast food, it is a deep-fried ball of wheat, vegetables, and mashed potatoes for dressing.

It also has a crispy and crunchy texture because it is coated with breadcrumbs.

These salty and savoury byte-sized munchies are the ultimate Spanish food.


Pisto is another tempting side dish that the locals mostly prefer with soups or brown rice.

It is made from tomatoes, onions, eggplants, green and red peppers, olive oil, and zucchini, and is often served with rice or bread.

It is also used as a filling for fried/baked pastries and tartlets. It is sweet, smoky and spicy at the same time.

Patatas bravas

This dish consists of diced potatoes, onions, and garlic dipped in a spicy sauce called salsa brava. It also contains paprika and chili powder, which gives it a spicy flavour.

This offering is a staple for locals, and due to its popularity, you can find it both at street food stalls and in restaurants.

It is available with a variety of fillings.
