Best Food Choices in Granada

asouth Jul 13, 2009 03:43 PM

I am going to be eating my way around Granada in September while my husband bikes across the Pyrenees. Any suggestions for restaurants and markets/food shops would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for cooking classes. On a non-food note, does anyone have a good guide for the Alhambra?

    Try Macena de las Monjas Plaza Padre Saurez, our Menu del dia was one of the best meals ever.

      Before you go, you should read the "Tales of the Alhambra" by Washington irving. Easy to get from Amazon... You should not need a guide book after that.

        Free tapas abound in Granada... stop for a cerveza or sangria everywhere you can to sample the goods!

          That's all I did...loved it.

          I've been to the Alhambra twice -- I think the only guide that I had might've been in whatever travel book I had at the time.
