Three Things You Need to Try in Málaga


One of the staples in Málaga is the classic churro and chocolate sauce. Arguably, the two best restaurants that serve churros are Casa Asranda and Tejeringo’s Coffee. Casa Asranda has the fluffiest churros I have ever tasted, and it is located in the city center, making it fairly convenient if you are already enjoying a night on the town. Then, there’s Tejeringo’s Coffee. Besides drool-worthy churros, they have the largest selection of chocolate sauces I have seen to dip your churros in. Personally, my favorite is the Kinder chocolate sauce. When you visit Málaga, be sure to try both restaurants to see which one you prefer!

Due to Málaga’s location on the coast, seafood is one of the most common foods you will find in this city. One popular dish is called Boquerones, which my host mom made for me a couple times each month I was there. For those who don’t know, Boquerones are fried anchovies. Sometimes you will eat the whole fish, and other times you’ll have to eat around the bones. I highly suggest you try this classic meal at least once, and it’s my favorite to have with lemon.

Last but not least, I recommend you definitely try this small, local coffee shop called Hola Guapa. Even though they are known for their “café con leche,” they also have a wide variety of teas and juices. This is the perfect place for people to enjoy who do not like coffee. The employees are so personable, it did not take that long for me to be considered a regular there. It has the perfect environment if you need to study and do homework, or even have a nice casual conversation with your friends. The only downside about this great café is that it is a little outside Málaga in El Paulo. So if you are ever near the University of Málaga International Center, make sure to stop on by!
