The Valencia of flavors: a surprise around every corner
Valencia is one and many. There's the Valencia of the Ciutat Vella, the historical center, where its origins are found; of urban beaches, which seem to have no end; of the City of Arts and Sciences, which is thrust into the future from the present; of municipal markets, with the best farm-to-table products… An experience we highly recommend is enjoying the local cuisine while touring Valencia. We'll tell you where to eat if you find yourself in any of these seven areas: Ciutat Vella; Eixample and Russafa; City of Arts and Sciences and Alameda; seaside districts, the Marina and beaches; Parque de Cabecera, Bioparc and Palacio de los Congresos; l'Horta; and l 'Albufera. Let's begin!
The city center marks the birthplace of Valencia. All the civilizations that made it great are still present: the Romans, the Arabs… And this is still reflected in a gastronomic eclecticism that will surprise you. Because, without a doubt, the culinary offerings in Ciutat Vella are extensive and varied. If you can imagine it, you can find it here. Bon profit!

Eixample is style and modernism. Explore the boundless opportunities, at least for a single visit, and get ready to be challenged. Eat well in a setting of majestic buildings or in the Mercado de Colón, one of Valencia's most beautiful. Russafa is the coolest and most cosmopolitan neighborhood. Proud of its multiracial culture. Driven by its municipal market, you can choose from a wide range of places, from a Michelin-starred restaurant to other options for all budgets.

Finishing up a day at the beach while your meal awaits just a few meters away from the shore is a delight. Fresh rice and fish made to order. And in the seaside neighborhoods, the local products you can find in the Cabanyal market prevail. Be sure to recharge your batteries in one of the nearby pubs and their magnificent assortment of salted fish. And don't forget what the Marina has to offer. Good food is waiting for you here, washed down with the finest cocktails.

BIOPARC, PARQUE DE CABECERA AND PALACIO DE CONGRESOS
The Turia Garden extends its green silhouette westward over 170 thousand square meters in Parque de Cabecera, alongside the Bioparc and its African animals. Another hub is located in the Palacio de Congresos. In this area you will find delicious offerings inspired by market cuisine, where the products of the sea and the l'Horta region reign supreme. Rounding out these suggestions are trusted dishes and some other international combinations here and there.
Once upon a time, it was the largest crop field in Valencia. An almost endless meadow of fresh vegetables, ready to pick up and take home. In this green belt with the smell of tiger nut, tender onion, lettuce and tomato, it is easy to find a great place to enjoy a nice meal. As traditional as l'Horta, with freshly picked products from the field next door and among the typical shacks of the farmers of the area, called barracas. Given all these solid culinary arguments, there's little else to be said. Let's eat!
An inland fresh-water sea just a stone's throw away from downtown Valencia. With a constant in the landscape of great importance to the history of cuisine in Valencia: the rice paddies. Between shacks and piers. This is where the paella was born, as was the eel allipebre. Enjoy these two dishes in any of the several places that serve them with professionalism and know-how. If you choose to go to El Palmar, you have to combine your meal with a boat ride, ideal to whet your appetite, or … to aid in digestion.
Those are our suggestions. Personalizing and improving them with new discoveries only depends on you and your desire. It's your turn.
