Vegetarian and vegan food in Ronda (Gluten free as well)

Are there vegan, vegetarian and gluten free eating out options in Ronda?

Over the last few months, I have had quite a few emails from people asking where vegetarian and vegan food can be found eating out in Ronda. So, last Thursday (20/02/2020) I visited 25 or so bars and restaurants in Ronda to find out. (I didn’t eat in all of them but it sure was a wonderfull morning, afternoon evening!)

The answer is of course YES! Almost all the places I visited have some options available (but many don’t have it printed on their menus.) The key of course is to ask the waiter before you sit down. You’ll find them very accomodating and quite eager to help.
Key words in Spanish

Vegetarian = Vegeteriano (male) – Vegeteriana (female)
Vegan = Vegano (male) – Vegana (female)
Gluten free = Sin gluten
Celiac = Celiaco (Male) – Celiaca (female)

Wine tasting tours and visiting a winery in Ronda.

Where to find a wine tour in Ronda?

Over the last few years the wineries (“bodegas” in Spanish) of Ronda have greatly increased their production and are going through what can only be described as a “boom time”. There are over 20 excellent vineyards producing Red, Rosé and white wines with the denomination of origin “Wines of Malaga” (Malaga being the province that Ronda belongs to.) Many of the wineries are open to the public for wine tasting tours and some even provide full lunches and dinners with matched wines to the food courses.

Bodegas la Sangre de Ronda.

If you are in Ronda then this is probably the best place to start as they have there own wine museum and interpretation centre located on the street called Gonzalez Campos (number 2.) This wine company obviously has a great passion for  wine and their philosophy as a winery  is to investigate and share viticulture and oenology practices.

Traditional Antequera Porra (Southern Spain)

In the South of Spain in the summer people make delicious cold soups, the most famous being gazpacho. Another is porra, and this recipe for traditional Antequera porra is super simple to make.

This soup is softer in taste than the gazpacho and offers a thicker substance. Ask for it in restaurants and be pleasantly surprised, unless you accidentally ask for “Porro Porra”, in which case you might receive a rather incredulous stare and the comment that in Spain joints (ahem, a soft smokable drug) aren’t normally served… Continue reading Traditional Antequera Porra (Southern Spain)
