Most travelers will be told to explore the Plaza Nueva area if they are in the mood to attempt tapas Granada-style. While this may be the most popular spot (including Calle Elvira to the north), we suggest also taking your tapas cravings northwest of central Granada to a street that borders the University of Granada's Fuentenueva Campus: Calle Gonzalo Gallas. A short street that parallels the busier Camino de Ronda, there's one reason alone for being here and it's the tapas. And the lack of tourists, that part can be pretty nice.
Most of the establishments on the street, of which there are a good dozen, are pretty no-frills, letting the snacks speak for themselves in quantity while providing plenty of beer with which to wash them down. El Peruano leads the list, but there are plenty of places to choose from that are of good quality. Stop this way if you're wandering north of the city and want to lose yourself in the local buzz; you can also head further north into the bundle of streets near the Plaza de Toros for another great collection of tapas joints.
