Alicante, Spain Cuisine | Where to Eat

Popular Local Cuisine: Rice is the basis for many typically Valencian dishes. Paella, made with saffron, rice, green vegetables, beans and featuring chicken, duck, rabbit or seafood is a Valencian invention, so this is the one meal everyone ought to have when visiting the Alicante area. While rice is the most important staple in the entire Valencia region, in Alicante one of the specialties is fideua - cooked much like paella, but with pasta instead of rice. Like paella, fideua has a wide range of ingredients and combinations. Perhaps the most iconic rice dish is Arroz con Costra, cooked in the same manner as paella, but with pork, chicken, sausage, chick peas, tomatoes, and eggs, blended with rice and spiced with garlic and turmeric. The most famous dessert of the area is of Moorish origin and is called turron, a candy with almonds and honey.

Fondillon dessert wine is the most famous from the Alicante region, though there are other drier wines produced locally that are appreciated as well.
