A wide variety of inland products
The year-round orange colour and smell of orange blossom in spring provide the ideal setting to try a wide variety of products (Iberian cured meats, cheese, fish and mainly excellent stews) served in almost all the bars and restaurants in the city, washed down with a large glass of wine, which has a special taste in Cordoba.
The old quarter and districts like San Andrés, San Lorenzo and Santa Marina are full of traditional taverns where you can enjoy delicious tapas: go from one bar to another and enjoy delicious wine from Cordoba (the best is the Montilla-Moriles Designation of Origin) and small and varied portions of typical dishes which are often free with your drink. You can try pickled anchovies or the typical flamenquín (fried serrano ham roll). Tipping is not obligatory, although it is common practice.
If you are looking for elaborate cuisine, you will find magnificent restaurants in the historic quarter and in the city centre. When ordering, bear in mind that some of the most typical dishes of the area are salmorejo (a type of cold tomato soup with bread, garlic and olive oil), bull's tail or pastel cordobés (puff pastry filled with candied pumpkin).
