Food Spots #11 – Valencia
If you’re a fan of Spanish food, Valencia is one of the best places to visit. It’s not as touristy as Barcelona, and you can easily find authentic food in this beautiful city.
On our first night in Valencia, we had dinner at la Rentaora, a typical Spanish tapas restaurant. They served very simple but super tasty food including salads, roasted goat cheese, and toasts. We paid around 30 euros for two and had an amazing night, with wine and good music included.

If you’re curious about Spanish food and you want to try different dishes, Mercado Central is the place to be. It closes quite early but you can taste all kinds of Spanish typical types of food there including drinks, pastries, fruits, croquetas, etc.
Everything is, of course, fresh, tasty and homemade, everything I’m looking for.

Almalibre Acai Bar
When I find a good breakfast place in a city, I can eat there every single day. Almalibre is a vegan breakfast and brunch place located in the Old Town of Valencia and the food there is just delicious. We tried their gazpacho, vegan burger, vegan wraps and acai bowls and everything was super cheap and tasty.

Jamon Jamon is another delicious tapas bar in Valencia. It’s a bit more expensive that the average tapas bars in Spain but the food is a bit fancier as well. I had their patatas bravas, squid, and cheese plate that included some roasted goat cheese with tomato jam. Omg it was delicious!

Ristorante Le Favole
After eating Spanish food for three days in a row, we have decided to eat Italian for dinner. My boyfriend found Le Favole on Google so we ate there. I ordered some gnocchi served with a four-cheese sauce, while my man opted for a pizza. And honestly, it was really good!

Brunch Corner is another really tasty breakfast place in Valencia. Almalibre is more of a lunch place with a few breakfast ideas while Brunch Corner serves food such as bagels, pancakes and yoghurts.

I’m going to end this article by saying that I have the best boyfriend in the world. A few months back I told him I would love to try a Michelin starred restaurant, so for our fifth year anniversary, he took me to La Salita.
La Salita is not a Michelin starred restaurant because all of these do not have vegetarian options. But honestly, it was as good, and I’m so grateful that he took me there.
The food and the service were incredible, and I won’t even mention the wine. We got 13 dishes and 13 glasses of paired wine. It was just amazing!
