GASTRONOMY
Fideuà de Gandia - Hotel Tres Anclas

We want to conquer our guests through the palate. That’s the reason to love the restoration and the cuisine the way we do it. We also want to add the best service.

 

Gandia´s cuisine is typically Mediterranean, so it mix the best ingredients from both the land and the sea. Vegetables, rice, fish and shellfish are its basic products.

 

The most typical recipe from Gandia is the Fideua. It’s similar to the paella, though with noodles instead of rice. In addition the fideua is also cooked with fish, shellfish and Mediterranean vegetables.
The fideua was invented by some sailors who realized that they had forgotten the rice to cook a paella when they were sailing on the open sea. As they had noodles in the ship, they used them instead creating a delicious recipe which became very popular among all Gandia citizens. Nowadays the Fideua has its own international contest every year in Gandia to recognize the best chefs.
Gandia´s restaurants are also famous because of the fish they cooked. Most of it is daily fish and sold in Gandia´s lonja, the fish market next to the port, offering their customers seasonable products.
