Mediterranean cuisine is one of the most respected in the world. Their products, the ways they are cooked, have gone beyond geographical borders to become a symbol of diverse and healthy food. Its radius of action is limited mainly to the countries of southern Europe, but you do not have to travel so far to enjoy its ingredients.
The restaurant El Puerto, in the Alicante town of Torrevieja, offers its customers that unique, different experience, which is Mediterranean cuisine. Is it how they claim a way of life rather than a way of feeding? There are good reasons to be sure.
Mediterranean cuisine, a lifestyle
Eating is more than a physiological act. Which means that you get together with friends around a table and calmly enjoy the flavours and smells of a good meal. If we add to this the benefits of the Mediterranean climate, the possibility it gives of enjoying the sun and the sea breeze, we already have the perfect recipe to turn this routine activity into a celebration.
The El Puerto restaurant knows this, and for that, it offers visitors local and seasonal products, and a privileged setting, its terrace overlooking the bay. There we can enjoy a quiet conversation after dinner, another of the basic ingredients of the Mediterranean lifestyle.
El Puerto has a long history behind it, we speak of two generations that have combined their knowledge and experience in ways to offer a better service to the client. They know that one of the essential characteristics of Mediterranean food is the wide variety of its products. We refer to foods of vegetable origin such as fruit, vegetables or rice, and those dishes that should not be missing in a kitchen of these characteristics, fish or seafood. We do not forget the aromatic herbs and that ingredient that has travelled thru half the world, olive oil.
There is much more. To prove it we will only have to put ourselves in the experienced hands of El Puerto personnel.
With these arguments, nobody doubts the beneficial effects of Mediterranean food. Not only helps improve the physical condition, but it also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, decreases cholesterol levels, and above all, increases our life expectancy. We have talked about the things that concern the body, but we can not leave aside those others that are related to the spirit. Because a good meal, in a scenario like Torrevieja and facing the sea, is a pleasure for the senses.
Let us take them and make our visit to the Port something special. Mediterranean cuisine is the cornerstone of our culture. It is one of our hallmarks and another reason to delight with it.
