    Making a pig's ear of it

    As the León region is famous for 'cocido maragato' we checked our guide book for a recommended restaurant. 'La Peseta' was top of the list, so even though another restaurant in the square looked pretty good, we decided to pay a tiny bit more. We weren't disappointed as the food was excellent, the dining room was posher than we're used to and staff were lovely!
    Cocido in Astorga is a three stage course...a meat stew basically, but the meat (chicken and pig meat) are served first, then the potatoes, veg and chickpeas and finally a clear broth with vermicelli.
    It was delicious BUT... be warned... some of the meat was difficult to identify!! My other half encouraged me to eat some that he later revealed was the snout. Yuk... I wasn't tempted by the ear either but he was braver! Great wine too!
    Also a small pension if you fancy a night in Astorga.

    Restaurante Paris: Local food, affordable prices

    If you are looking for a stylish restaurant, this will not be your choice.
    Seen from the street it just looks like one of this small-village-bar, with some local (old) people playing cards or watching tv, but at the back of the cafeteria there is a tiny dinner-room, with 6 tables where around 15 people can seat.

    It is just some meters down the street from the cathedral square, but day menu (2-courses+dessert+water/wine) is much cheaper than in the expensive restaurants opposite the cathedral.

    Favorite Dish: All the dishes in the menu sounded OK. I had soup and meat. Others, salads and fish.
