The local specialties of Vinaros

Vinaros represents one of the enclaves on the shores of the Mediterranean where the sea is very generous. Here, you can enjoy its fish and seafood: we particularly recommend anchovies, eels but also sardines.

In Vinaròs and in the region, everyone knows the famous “Fiesta del langostino” prawns. Have you ever tasted it? Thus, the gamba de Vinaròs, with its unparalleled flavor, texture and quality, is recognized throughout the world. It is the star to taste in the different dishes to enjoy the delicious local cuisine.

The traditional dishes of Vinaros go beyond the gamba: fish suquets, llandetes of red mullet with potatoes, anchovies or sardines in escabèche, octopus sulsit, cuttlefish with brutesca… It makes your mouth water, no  ?

We can also mention the mackerel xapada or the countless recipes based on rice, such as rice with mantis shrimp, arròs a banda, arrossejat or rice with espardenyes (sea cucumbers) are some of the most popular .
