A local dish and better yet, a local place to get it is the Bocadillos de Calamares at the "El Calamar Bravo", or the other two restaurants that are immediately next door.
El Calamar Bravo is only a walk-in and dine out place, while "La Mejillonera" right next door has some tables for sitting.
Favorite Dish: The dish in question, is a fried calamari sandwich. You have options of regular or spicy. Either way, your waist line might not like you, but your taste buds surely will.
This simply & charming bar offers one of the best well known "spanish tapas".
Between midday and 2.00 p.m you'll be delightful with a extense variety of all sort of tapas.
You won't be able to stop eating until every one has been tasted.
You must put the toothstick where the "tapa" is hooked in a little plate for the final recount of them and so get the bill.
It's a place with a long history. Now renewed, it has lost a bit of its old glamour..but you'll be greatly satisfied about the athmosphere.
Favorite Dish: Most of the "tapas" are fried -long live to the cholesterol- but delicious.
One of my favourite is "pimiento con chistorra rebozado" -sweet red pepper with chorizo".
Also exist a restaurant very special. It locates at 25 km of Zaragoza between 'La Almunia de doña Godina and Cariñena' is name is 'el mesón de los veinte platos, Almonacid de la Sierra'. Over there they prepare a menu with more than 25 plates, very special, for big stomach (it´s very cheap)See my page about Almonacid de la Sierra
Another good site is 'la tasquilla de don Pedro' in the Cinegio street (in the 'tubo'), it´s a good 'bar a tapas'you can find fun 'tapas' like Tortilla made of 12 eggs (nice and good, miam !)
In the 'casco '(next to the pilar square) you´ll find a lot of small restaurants.
My favourite is 'el fuelle' in the Mayor street.
Another good site is 'el peirón de la manduca' a little bar next to'paseo san francisco', they have a lot of good 'tapas' the specialities of the bar are 'los peirones' just one word delicious!
a very very good site
Some dishes that are native to the Aragon region of Spain are candied fruits covered with chocolate,adoguines(caramel-filled,rectangular pastries wrapped up with paper bearing an image of the Virgin of Pilar) and conchi frito(lamb fried with lemon,garlic and paprika.
Do you know what 'tapas' means ? If you don't, you are missing the salt of the life.
You can eat hundreds of different 'tapas' in hundreds of bars in my city. If you prefer restaurants, the best is La Matilde, old and small restaurant but high cuisine and prices.
A little less expensive restaurant with regional dishes (migas,borrajas, ternasco asado) is El Cachirulo, and if you want to taste the old spanish fashion in restaurants test Casa Emilio or El Fuelle.
Favorite Dish: When you are hungry order 'Migas con uva' and 'Ternasco Asado con patatas a lo pobre'
and don't forget a Señorio de Lazan red wine.
But, remember...You have to be very hungry to order that.
If not, order Borrajas (vegetables which only grows in Aragon) and you will experiment the finest vegetables in earth. Follow it with Costillas de Ternasco, and Melocoton con Vino in the dessert.
CASA LAC (It´s the oldest restaurant in Zaragoza and also in Spain (since 1825). On wenesday there are concerts (blues, jazz,..). Very nice place. Is located in 'El tubo' in the old center.
CREPERIE LA FLOR. The best crepes you have never eaten. Also in the town center (San Felipe Square).
LA BODEGUILLA DE LA SANTA CRUZ
Another great site to eat a Tapa and drink a wine. This old candy factory was reconvert in a very nice bar. Don´t miss it !
It´s a good bar where you can find a lot of good and creative tapas. Very good !
Great restaurant where you can eat delicious 'couscous' and another specialities.
