You don’t want to mess with a traveler’s first meal in the town they’re visiting. We landed in Malaga from New York via Paris in the afternoon, and after a couple of hours to unwind and a brief nap, we headed to town for our first bite. We wanted to get our trip off to a great start.
The first order of business was sangria, which reversed our evening of jetlag and travel malaise into one ready for adventure. We ordered some appetizers and toasted to our destination and all its possibilities.
The decor at El Pimpi is photographer-friendly, and invites guests to sit and overstay. Unfortunately they didn’t serve paella in the evenings, and we needed to get our fix. So we headed to El Patio Bodega and were not disappointed.
The staff at El Pimpi was warm and friendly, even if it did have the reputation as a tourist trap. We felt that other places were much more touristy. It was a great welcome to Malaga and our magical week in Andalusia.
