Malaga’s gastronomy: evolution or revolution?

Up until recently the city of Malaga was somewhere you had to look up on the map to get an idea of where it even was. It was merely a pit-stop on the way to the lazy Costa del Sol beaches. And to be perfectly fair, it was not exactly?known as a Michelin-star destination.

Today, Malaga is unrecognizable from its former self. People from all over the world flock to the city to experience first-hand this revolutionary change in culture, music and gastronomy, which are turning the city into what some would consider the Barcelona of the south. The evolution has taken the Malaga food scene from a few fried anchovies and room-temperature potato salad found on each corner bar?to trendy and chic gastronomical treasures. An example of how gastronomy can be used as a barometer to gauge changes in a city’s identity.
