The gastronomy in Vera is characterised for its flavour, food with a typical Mediterranean essence with an Arab influence, whom after a reign of over 700 years in the region have left us their influence in typical dishes of the region and that we recommend to try.
Dishes like the stew of balls or the ‘gurullos’ with rabbit are typical of Almeria, and we must also mention the local confectionery with sweets that will most certainly delight the taste buds of those ‘sweet tooth’ tourists, and with a flavour marked by the influence of the many different cultures that have passed through Vera and Almeria.
In Vera they have recovered dishes that have almost been forgotten in time, a legacy of generations that have passed their traditional recipes that combine the different elements that are available in Vera and its surroundings. We recommend a visit to one of the restaurants or bars in Vera and try out the “tapa” that are small rations with which you’ll be able to try many of the different typical dishes at a lower price.
Some of the typical dishes in Vera and Almeria:
‘Tortas de Avio’
’Gurullos’ with rabbit
Red Garlic (‘Ajo Colorao’)
Stew of balls (‘Guiso de pelotas’)
