As promised, Eva took us to her favourite place for CHURROS -- Costa Del Sol. When they brought us our plate of churros, I couldn't help but giggle. They were the funniest looking things, but they were awesome and delicious. No wonder they are a favourite custom.
A churro is a deep-fried pastry-based snack usually curled or spirally twisted. Churro connoisseurs dunk their churro into a mug of piping hot chocolate, thick in the Spanish fashion. This combination is called "chocolate con churros".
Churros are often sold by street vendors who fry them fresh and sell them hot, usually by the dozen or half dozen.
In Andalucía, I noticed that much like in the Carribean, people leave off the final "s" of words. For example, "muchas gracias" becomes "mucha gracia." Not that pronouncing the "s" will make much of a difference, but hey, "when in Rome...." :)
As in most parts of Spain: churros. Nothing better than a breakfast:chocolate with churros. It's free fat and give you energy! break a diet(like in my case) to eat here in Fuengirola.
pero que pinta tiene, Dios mio!!!
My father always says that her mum's gazpacho was the best. Now i understand why. My grandmother was from Malaga so i understand because there i tried the best gazpachos. Eva's homemade was spectacular.
Normaly is green peppers, tomatoes, garlic, olive oil,salt, vinager, bread (the bread with water), cucumber.
In the picture Porra Antequerana(different style)
Around late march and early april, here they celebrate the festival of the towns.

Anything you look for, here it is.

Spanish people use to have a very light breakfast, a coffe, but ... at 12 or so you will see people having ... another breakfast ... perhaps churros ? ... I love churros, but as everything they must be very well done, if not they will be horrible. ... so ... they must be just done and in a very hot oil. ... in fuengirola you can have wonderfull churros at "Cafeteria Costa del Sol" in Plaza de la Constitucion. So if you are near there at morning or evening ... try them.
As Fuengirola is a touristic city you can start eating very soon, over 1pm and have diner over 7pm, that is not normal in no touristics cities (spanish people use to eat over 2:30 and diner over 10:00)
I did not take in a bullfight, but many do. It is a personal preference. Tickets can sell out for most events. The more expensive tickets are lower seats in the shade...uppers and seats in the sun, are less expensive. Regardless of your opinion , it is something unique to Spain, for those that are interested.
On Saturdays mornings at Fuengirola, there is this great car boot sale held at the Feria park. You can buy just about anything from Antiques to Arts and Crafts. Some of it is expensive some of it very cheap, it pays to look around and haggle with the vendors.
As long as i could see in my four days, fried fish is the best. Typical of the Costa. I really enjoy the boquerones fritos.
