      Food of Granada have much similarities with those the rest of Andalucia. Some of the food have Moorish influences such as the use of honey/sweet and nuts in savory dishes, food fried in oil, Gazpacho in the summer and salmorejo other times of the year; drink sherry with tapas, and vinegar made with sherry use in salads and cooking. Peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, dried beans, seafood, lamb, jamon, etc., Granada does not have great high-end restaurants; tapas places are everywhere in the city. These have been many earlier posts of these on this board.

        A tapa for free with your glass of beer or wine is a tradition in Granada. Good tapas bars in central Granada:
        Riviera at Calle Cetti-Meriem 7
        La Antigualla at Calle Elvira 1
        Taberna Salinas at Calle Elvira 13
        Los Diamantes at Calle Navas
