New gourmet market in Torremolinos


Do you enjoy Andalusian food and become a real food explorer trying to find good new places to eat you whenever you visit Costa del Sol?

If that is you, we come with great news as only a few weeks ago the amazing new “Sabor a Malaga” Gourmet market opened in Torremolinos.

This new market is in Plaza de la Independencia, right in the centre of Torremolinos, and this summer it will open its doors every evening.

Although this is not a very big market, as it only has 14 stalls, in the few days it has been opened it has received quite an important number of visitors eager to try the amazing options each of them offers.

The choice is quite extense as it is possible to eat things like grilled meat, fish, seafood, Iberian products, cheeses, cocktails, ice creams and even cakes. Besides this, inside the market there is a “Sabor a Malaga” stall where typical products from the region can be purchased.

You surely agree that the Malaga region has a vast number of bars and restaurants like not many other places in Spain. Now that we have also added this kind of popular gourmet market to the Costa del Sol culinary offer this is even more impressive.  

Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, surely recommends you go to Torremolinos to visit this new market next time you come over.

Costa del Sol and high-quality local food are definitely a winning combination!

Its friendly head chef, Salvador, who is now an expert in this kind of cuisine has prepared a fun and cheeky tapa with expectacular flavours.

The name he has given to his tapa is “Duo Exotico” and it consists of a bed of fried leek with a little sack of crab stuffed filo pastry on top as well as a langoustine covered in brick pastry, soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, a cherry tomato and a reduction of balsamic vinegar.
