Full description
In Malaga, it’s all about enjoyment: the city’s sheltered location between the mountains and the sea on Southern Spain’s sunny Costa del Sol guarantees a pleasant climate and rich harvests. The culinary heritages of the Phoenicians, Romans and Moors created a varied and delicious cuisine to pair with the world-famous Malaga wine.

Specialties from all over the Mediterranean and the Andalusian hinterland offer an irresistible choice of delicacies, served with the warm and friendly hospitality typical of the area in countless tapas bars and restaurants. Your food hopping event is like a multi-course meal: you experience a new location and taste a different food or drink speciality with each course, enjoyed with amusing anecdotes about this pearl of the Costa del Sol.

Join us on a trip back in time to Malaga’s oldest bar, which is like a living museum. Large barrels, cranky barmen who fill your glass to the rim, and the tally kept with chalk on the counter. Immerse yourself in Malaga’s liquid heritage and follow the footsteps of countless locals and celebrities who have visited since 1840.
Hidden away in the heart of the city, come to a place with the charm of an old village shop. Here, everything can be bought and taken home with you - even the dining tables and chairs. Surrounded by local treasures, handicrafts and antiques, hear how the former ceramic factory became a popular neighbourhood get together. The matching taste experience, with golden olive oil and local cold cuts, is just a few meters away.

There is little evidence from the outside but behind the thick white walls of the next hidden gem, one of Andalusia’s most important customs is kept alive. Dressed ih pointed hats, medieval robes and religious artifacts, the penance brotherhood is equally passionate about religious rites  cas they are ulinary traditions. Here you get to enjoy homemade croquetas in a truly special place.

At the other stops, feel the beat of the delicious Heart of Malaga at an ancient dockyard and learn why shopkeeper Francisco and his sons would lose their business by changing only one letter of the shop’s nameplate. Taste the best ham in the world served by cats between bullfight posters and a padded toro. Savor the signature dish of a true rice master under sun sails in a lovely patio. Sample a local delight in a beautiful hidden park, and enjoy much, much more.
