They are not specifically vegetarian, but the center of Malaga has many other restaurants where there are excellent tapas that adapt perfectly to this type of cuisine. One of them is based on the different types of tomatoes produced in the Guadalhorce Valley: the tomato salad prepared by chef Daniel Carnero in La Cosmopolita, which presents varieties such as the bull egg, Crimean, heart of ox, goat’s teat, Venus nipple or black tomato.
Nearby, in El Pimpi you can try some delicious fried aubergines with honey from Frigiliana, a dish similar to the one you can taste in El Chinitas. While in the traditional Mesón Mariano, the star is the artichoke, prepared in many ways: candied, fried, grilled, in salad … A more modern restaurant is El Mortal, with menus that change daily and that can include dishes such as chard ravioli and fresh spinach with peanut praline, roasted carrots, orange and sage cream or a lentil salad.
Nor should we forget the tasty ajoblanco, a cold soup made with garlic and almonds, from El Refectorium Catedral.
