One of the most enjoyable things on any trip is discovering the local cuisine and the Com. Valenciana has a lot to offer in this regard. In this review of some of city's best restaurants, we'll offer you tips on how to get the most flavour out of your trip.
The Valencian gastronomy is varied, natural and traditional. The fruit and vegetables of this fertile land, as well as fresh fish and seafood, provide the main ingredients of an exquisite Mediterranean cuisine.
The most characteristic dishes are made with rice which is cooked in a myriad of different ways. The star of the show is the world famous paella. Paella is a kind of stew, cooked with dry rice, chicken and rabbit, bajoqueta (green beans) and garrofón (butter beans). Other traditional dishes are arroz al horno (oven-baked rice), arroz a banda (rice with seafood), arroz negro (rice with squid), arròs amb fesols i naps, a “moist” rice with beans and turnips, and fideuá (replacing rice with noodles).
Patatas bravas, grilled cuttlefish, mussels, clams, anchovies in vinegar and cod croquettes... are just a handful of the tapas on offer to enjoy with a cold beer or some sangria. Salted fish is very typical of Valencia, particularly salted tuna, roe and dried cod, used to create such dishes as the traditional esgarraet – red peppers and aubergine, baked with dried codfish and seasoned with olive oil.
