The photo on the left is my first meal in Murcia! I was so lucky! El Rincon de Las Anas is still one of my very favorite places to eat. This is a prawn surrounding a scallop on a bed of lettuce with sprouts and salsa and chili pepper on top. 4 euros and phenomenal. There is also a beer bar next-door with Belgians on tap.
Beer spot: La Porcha is well-stocked with both local micros and European brews.
La Tapa (you MUST try their croquettes w goat cheese, rosemary and honey- photo above) It’s in my favorite plaza. The photo above on the right is of their mushroom gazpacho. It’s got foam on top and it’s only 3 euros- what?!
I walked by El Jardín de los Dragones one afternoon and happened to be so hungry that I ran right in. I’m sure glad I did! This is now one of my favorites! I go for tapas + beers or a menu del dia (multi course lunch). P.s. it’s vegan!
Urban Burrito Bar = saving Murcia from an American-Mexican food shortage. I’m so glad this place exists! It’s a staple for me now.
Mano a mano has fantastic pizza. I love to take a slice to go and eat on a bench in the sunshine while people watching.

Coffee spots: Cafe Lab, El Gallinero & Socolá are all amazing.
