If you’ve never tried the Califa Tapas bar in Vejer you don’t know what you´re missing. It occupies a prime position on the “corredera” walkway and its wide outside awning provides thankful shading from the hot sun. The bar owners are the same as the renowned Jardin de Califa restaurant who are highly regarded for their quality meals.
We have been to the Califa Tapas bar many times, and it consistently offers first rate food and great value for money. We particularly love the succulent lamb burgers served inside a tasty bun, with a succulent red sauce. This is accompanied with a side dish of “Gajo Potatoes,” and a special sauce.
For starters we can never resist the “Mezze of the Califa” which includes Humus, Tabulé and the very refreshing Babaganoush. They have plenty of other mouth-watering dishes to choose from, and we recommend that you check them out. Here is a brief glossary of the mid-eastern dishes mentioned above.
- Humus: a thick paste made from ground chickpeas, olive oil, lemon and garlic.
- Tabulé: a salad of bulgur, (wheat) mixed with lightly chopped parsley and minced onions and tomatoes.
- Babaganoush: a Levantine dip produced from baked mashed eggplant mixed with lemon, garlic, olive oil and assorted seasonings.
