While the pencils and brushes are moving among the artists, in La Cosmopolita there are some stable options like stews, meat and probably one of the best potato salads in town (ensaladilla rusa); but there is another one that changes almost daily as the menu itself reveals: “ Today’s dishes … and tomorrow we don’t know yet.”
So depending on the day, you can find delicacies such as prawn tartar from Malaga with roasted marrow, a dish that combines land and sea as few do- one of the stars of the house.
For hot days included this fall here in Malaga, the cold meat salmorejo is highly recommended. And when winter comes, if it does, it will be time for artichokes with roe or the classic “berzas” from Malaga, an exquisite local stew that could fill an entire book with illustrations and, of course, the stomach.
