"Cheaper Meals" Alicante Restaurant Tip by marisa81

Alicante Restaurants: 73 reviews and 114 photos

In most spanish cafeterias (small local restaurants) they serve small appetizers or snacks. If you go up to the counter to order them and eat them at the counter/bar then the price is a lot cheaper. Once you sit down at a table and service is required the price of the food jumps.

Favorite Dish: A great quick and cheap meal is the tortilla espanol. It is an omlette with potatoes served on fresh bread. It is sooooooo good.
Some places serve it with some sort of tomato sauce (which is even better) It is really cheap (less than 3 euros for a big sandwich) and it is super filling. Most local cafeterias and restaurants sell it.

Price Comparison: least expensive
Price: less than US$10
