Eat and Drink Tips
Horchata (called 'Orxata' in Valencian language) is a popular soft drink from Valencia and fartons is a kind of bread, together are so good. Horchata is made from 'chufa' (it's a root). Arabs brought chufa from Egipt (700 BC). Note horchata from Valencia is not the same as in Mexico (made from rice). There are a number of 'horchaterias' in Valencia, the most famous of which is opposite the Iglesia y Torre de Santa Catalina in the corner of Plaza de la Reina.
If you are very fond of Starbucks coffee-shops you can find one close to Plaza del Ayuntamiento (City Hall Square), at Calle San Vicente Martir 44, next door to Olimpia Theater. There is another on the same street San Vicente Martir between the squares Ayuntamiento and Reina. And you have another one at the end of the street La Paz, near the Parterre Gardens.
