Casa Conrado: Upscale Asturian
We enjoyed Casa Conrado for lunch. It is a bit on the formal side, but the food was good, the service was attentive, and the atmosphere was nice. They served traditional Asturian cuisine, upscale style, beautifully presented. The vegetables in the sole vegetarian were overcooked. They did a lot better on their meat dishes. So many Spanish restaurants are still challenged by vegetarian cuisine, unless it is Andalusian gazpacho....Casa Conrado was no different.
Favorite Dish: Although this might have been their most simple dish on the menu, the rice pudding was to die for.

Calle Cascona: The Sidrerias
Asturias is Cider country and has its traditional ways of serving it. There are serveral typical Sidrerias in Calle Cascona, a road frequented by tourists and locals alike, for lunch or dinner, or just to share a bottle with friends (or drink it on your own...to have a chat with your bar neighburs). My Spanish improves enormously after a bottle....
Favorite Dish: I only remember the cider, but Asturias has lots of local dishes and delicacies.
Punta y Coma: Love the name, the food.....eh!
Punta y coma can mean either:
Period and comma
Period and eat
Point and eat
I love the play on words here. A period is a stop, stop and eat is a logical deduction of this name.
Favorite Dish: Unfortunately, I wasn't as impressed by the food. I ordered lomo de cerdo (pork loin) and it was dry and covered in a gravy. It reminded me of cafeteria style turkey and gravy which is something I would never eat unless I had to due to extreme hunger and a lack of any other choices.
