    Los gambones

    We had a lovely seafood lunch here. I especially loved it because I had a favorite Spanish dish of mine: Shrimp cooked "ala plancha," and giant ones at that! The restaurant's right by the pier so we had a great view of the water while eating.

    So... good view, great food and even better company!

    "Picos de Europa" is a cafe with middle prices. Here you can eat "platos cobinados" - complex of food. Usualy sousage, potatos, chicken etc. are in this complex. Nothing luxurious, but the best way how to have a meal.

    Favorite Dish: In "Picos de Europa" you'll find "churros" - traditional cookies. The best time for "churros" is breakfast.

    The "sidrerías" (or cider restaurants): Do you really want to eat good food????

    by Jansa Updated Feb 22, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A "sidrería" is a typical restaurant/bar here in Asturias. There, you can taste our great cider, delicious fish or even seafood, "tapas" (little portions of food, very cheap), lots of different cheeses, sweet desserts and many things more.
    Here, we have a real cider culture, and you can realize if you get into one of these places.
    It´s really worthy....I promise!.

    Favorite Dish: Well, it´s almost imposible to say...maybe "pastel de cabracho" (it´s a cake made with a kind of fish), or the chesses (specially one of them called "Cabrales", famous all over the country because of its awful smell), or the octopus (though it´s better cooked in Galicia), or the "arroz con leche" (or rice with milk. It´s a delicious sweet dessert)....

    You have also to try the cheeses of the region becauser are superb.

    Favorite Dish: Not matter what restaurant you choose. All Asturias have a great gastronomic art!!!.

    The natural (hard) cider is famous, as is the unique manner of serving it, descanting (escanciar) it from on high so that it foams up as it splashes into the glass held low in the other hand.

    Favorite Dish: QUESO CABRALES

    En los postres hay que destacar sin duda los quesos, ya que Asturias tiene una
    gran variedad que ofrecer. Destaca el queso de cabrales que está elaborado con leche de vaca, cabra y oveja y fermenta en cuevas de piedra caliza en la zona que le da el nombre a este queso.

    Favorite Dish: LA SIDRA

    La bebida que sin duda forma parte de la personalidad de la región es la sidra. Es una bebida de baja graduación (5 - 6 grados de alcohol) que combina la armonía entre el dulce, amargo y el ácido de la manzana asturiana.
    La sidra tiene su propio vocabulario, así por ejemplo, cuando nos la dan a beber es siempre en forma de un 'culín' o 'culete', así es como se llama a la cantidad de sidra que se echa en un vaso y que hay que ingerir de una sola vez.

    La forma de echar el culín es lo que se denomina 'escanciar' y consiste en arrojar la
    sidra desde lo alto para que caiga justo en el borde del vaso.

    'HECHA EN SILENCIO...... TOMADA CON ALEGRIA'

    Favorite Dish: LA FABADA
    El plato más representativo de la gastronomía asturiana es sin duda la fabada. Se puede
    cocinar con distintos ingredientes pero la típica fabada asturiana es la que lleva fabes de La Granja, junto con el 'compangu' que es chorizo, morcilla y tocino. También se puede cocinar en otras 'versiones' más ligeras, por ejemplo, acompañando las fabas con almejas, centollo o liebre.
