Can you think of a better reason to travel to Cordoba than to try its salmorejo, which even has its own street? In this article, I’m going to take you on a gastronomic tour of the city of Cordoba.
6 Restaurants you should try in Cordoba, Spain
📍Bar Santos, the bar with the world’s biggest Spanish Omelette
First of all, I have to warn you that I don’t know if they have the biggest tortilla in the world, but its size is impressive. In fact, no one can resist photographing it, or taking a selfie with it.
Maybe that’s why it’s one of their star tapas, after salmorejo – I don’t know how they do it here, but it’s really good!
For those who love tapas from Granada, they are not free here.
The bar is small, so it’s always crowded, there’s even a queue. But you can order your food and enjoy it sitting on the wall just in front of it.
📍Patios de la Marquesa
And speaking of salmorejo, they also have a delicious salmorejo here.
Located in the Jewish quarter of Cordoba, this gastronomic market offers the opportunity to sample the city’s typical dishes – and some less typical ones – at its 16 stalls. The patios preserve the Andalusian touch typical of the patios of Cordoba.
They have a wine bar, a stall dedicated solely and exclusively to salmorejo, and even an Arabic cuisine stall, among others.
Mercado Victoria is undoubtedly the best option for couples or travelling groups with different tastes. Here you will find all kinds of food: from Galician octopus to Mexican food, from tortillas with any product you can imagine to Arabic food.
It is the first gastronomic market in Andalusia. It is located on Paseo de la Victoria, and has a wide culinary offer for all kinds of palates.
La Bicicleta is a restaurant specialised in healthy food.
I can’t tell you what the dishes are like, but the cakes are finger-licking good. They have natural juices, zubatas, tarts of the day and avocado salmorejo 🥑😱.
📍La Taberna del Río
Located on Paseo de la Ribera, overlooking the river, is La Taberna del Río, with an ideal terrace in summer and a menu where traditional cuisine is intermingled with avant-garde touches.
In this place, I must make a special mention to their bread, made in Panadería Hermanos Fernández, a famous bakery in Córdoba, you can even buy their bread online!
Thanks to this visit we got to know the profession of panier, the person in charge of advising on the type of bread that goes best with a particular dish.
📍El Rancho – Grupo la Carbonería
Located on the outskirts of Cordoba, this place is ideal for groups or any kind of celebration. A cosier atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoying good food. Doesn’t sound like a bad plan, does it?
