What to eat in Genalgucil.
Since one needs more than just art, after a long day of stroll through the town there is nothing better than stopping to enjoy its local cuisine, in many cases matching the season.Strong and sierra inspired dishes, such as the various chickpea stews, rabbit stews, pork sausages, fennel stew, mushrooms and garlic stir-fry or its famous hot gazpacho, made with local products.
If what you are looking for is to enjoy a long and quiet lunch, Venta Las Cruces is the ideal place. This cozy food house located at the entrance of the villa offers endless homemade specialties that will delight any visitor. It is worth mentioning its meat stew (pork or veal, depending on the day) with boletus, pork cheeks stewed or its classic mountain dish, consisting of fried eggs, chorizo, ham and “popes a lo pobre” All this, of course accompanied with a good wine from the earth.
But if what you want is something more informal, tapas are also present in Genalguacil in bars like El Refugio (C \ Duende, 4 – Tel: 952 152 018) or El Patio (C \ Asperilla, 11 – Tel: 680 665 225 ), where we can taste anything from the classic montaditos and tortillas to sausages and shrimp skewers.
