Malaga Local Food and Drinks
El Pimpi is a gorgeous traditional Spanish restaurant heavily decorated through the use of wine barrels. The indoor and outdoor seating options allow to enjoy the sun or hide from the rain (on the rare occasion that it would rain!). El Pimpi has a great family atmosphere and thanks to the low prices is very popular with locals and tourists alike.
Must Try Dishes: Trying a Spanish Omlette (Tortilla de patatas), a dish central to the Spanish cuisine is vital. The Tortilla is much like a regular omlette, only thicker and includes big chunks of potatoes. It’s simple, but more delicious than you can imagine!

Must Try Dishes: Another simple yet delicious Spanish delicacy is Patatas Bravas, which is essentially roasted potatoes. However, the Spaniards pair these with different sauces. Here at Oleo the chiefs have created an incredible spicy foam.
