La Manga Del Mar Menor- A Gastronomic Experience .....
La Manga offers a wealth of different styles of cuisine although it is fair to say that the typically Mediterranean style of cooking is available in all good restaurants. This includes paellas,
fresh fish, freshly grilled meats and succulent salads, normally
using locally grown produce.
One of the local delicacies is a whole fish (usually locally caught mujol or dorada) cooked in a jacket of salt, which, although when served is quite
often considered to lack a little in terms of presentation, is a very delicate
and filling dish. Lobster is also available, as are oysters when in season,
and a great variety of shellfish brought in each day by the fishermen
from Cabo de Palos.
At nearby Cabo de Palos the Sunday market offers a great variety of goods for sale, from fresh fruit and vegetables or why not drift down to the harbor to take a tapa (Drink/Snack), stay for lunch or just stroll along the quayside
The Tomas Maestre Marina comes alive at night with its many bars and restaurants and you must sample the local fish and shellfish fresh from the sea, or the locally famous Paella, a typical rice dish of the fishermani or Spanish, Greek, Indian, Chinese or Mexican...... There is something for everyone here,
