With the vegetable garden products many different dishes are prepared, such as the menestra, the potatoes a la riojana, stuffed peppers (with I.G.P Pimiento Riojano), stews made of bud or other legumes… These vegetables are also cooked by themselves, with potatoes and oil D.O.P. Rioja, produced in the city. The cow meat, lamb or pork is usually roasted, grilled or eaten as the traditional embutidos (sausage). Logroño has many different wineries where the wine D.O.Ca Rioja is made, and other types that are the base to the wine local tourism, apart from the Cava with D.O.. One of the main attractions of Logroño are its bars and tapas. The streets of Laurel and San Juan (that together form the “Senda de los Elefantes”) are the places with the biggest concentration of tapas bars. This city is a national reference, and it is especially alive during the celebrations of San Mateo. Eating in Logroño will be a pleasure!

Eating in Logroño is a complete celebration, specially speaking of tapas. As we have said before, the main region to enjoy some tapas is located between the streets Laurel and San Juan, both full of great bars. The Bar Soriano is a great place to eat in Logroño. If you like mushrooms, this is a mandatory stop. Attention! This place is always packed, so we recommend you not to go during their busiest hours.

El 19 is a good restaurant if you are looking for tapas and also from something a la carte. The great variety of pinchos will make you have a hard time when choosing what to eat. The one of elver with ham is our favorite.

Torres Gastrobar is another excellent place. Without a doubt, their best tapa is the pincho de cobe, but the stuffed eggplant and the cod are also delicious.

From Blanco y Negro we recommend the famous goat cheese pie with ham and raspberry; from Juan y Pínchame the popular brochette with shrimp and pineapple. Tastavin has one of the most attractive counters in San Juan. Finally, we must not forget about Los Rotos, one of the classics of the town.
