25.02.2018 /4: A quick walk to Sabor a Mar

Peace (C) Two Queens Travel Blog 2018

After walking with our bags from the train station to our accommodation at Calle Dos Aceras, we do a bit of unpacking and decide to head out to find something to eat, and also to get the first glimpse of Málaga, the City of Picasso and Antonio Banderas.

Even though I have travelled to the Canary Islands a lot due to my work earlier on, I had completely managed to forget that Spanish people tend to eat a lot later than we do in a Finland. This meant that most of the restaurants and such open at 20.00 (or around that time)! Which means we had a bit of time to snoop around.

As everything is quite new to us still, we mainly head towards the recommended area of Calle Larios. It is also near to our pad, which makes it a good place to start the exploring of Málaga. And in the setting sun we managed to take a few photos as a prelude for our tourist activities!

And slightly later we happened upon a small restaurant/cafe, where we decided to sit down for dinner of paella and wine.

Sabor a Mar is conveniently located a stone’s throw away from the Tourist Information point at Plaza de la Marina. At first we opted to go to a posher looking restaurant next door, but the waiter there looked like he didn’t like any customers to come in, or at least two queens, so we opted for this. And it turned out to be a good choice!

Sitting down and taking a peek at the menu, it seems that the place, like many in the tourist areas, is open from breakfast time until late. So this, of course, makes one think that there is a certain quality of food to be expected and it isn’t always good. And the taste is always complimented by the service, and we were happy that the older waiter attending us was smiling and clearly didn’t mind that there were two queens coming to have dinner at his place.

Our order of paella and house wine was quickly and efficiently taken, and whilst he brought the wine, a small bowl of olives and some bread rolls also appeared.

The atmosphere at Sabor a Mar wasn’t anything exceptional. The place is small, and at this time of the year, it was also slightly chilly, but the service was nice, and the food turned out to be delicious. Deliciousness that comes from having Spanish food in Spanish atmosphere, certainly, but also because the paella we had was clearly made from fresh ingredients.

Having travelled to The Canary Islands through my work earlier on quite a lot, I know how easy it is to get that kind of “touristy food” but this was something of a small treasure we found! Price for all this? 20€ for all of this (10€ per person for paella and wine…)

The Two Queens definitely recommend this place to stop by and enjoy your basic Spanish food.
