Food and drink
The best quality ingredients fresh from the market. A wide selection of tapas and raciones are served at the bar; try the wonderful prawns from nearby Santapola or the tarta of tuna and prawn carpaccio. The jamon iberico Josellito is superb, if a bit pricey. Piripi is also well known for its tapa de toda la vida, simple classics such as albondigas (meat balls) and mano de cerdo (pigs feet). The choice is pretty overwhelming. The restaurant offers a good menu, but it is mainly rice that visitors come here for, eighteen to choose from, from paella to arroce caldoso, ‘soggy’ rice as it’s sometimes translated, which simply means that all the liquid isn’t cooked off, making it more like a risotto.
Hectic if you go around lunch time. Make a late lunch and you will be more relaxed.
On the road from the main railway station to the sea.
Can work out quite expensive.
