    Calle Gascona: "Boulevard de la Sidra"

    by elpariente Written Apr 10, 2016

    We're not talking about just one restaurant or bar, but of all who are on the Gascona street
    I usually go to "Tierra Astur" which is very good, but you can go to the street and decide where you take a cider and something to eat, because they are all good.
    Here we must mention the cider, which is made by fermenting the juice of apples and is the typical drink of Asturias
    Cider have to wake up, so do not panic when you have it and see that the waiter puts down the glass and the bottle up and he throws the cider from above .
    The cider etiquette requires that everyone in the group drink from the same glass.
    They serve a little in your glass and you have to take everything as it's served, if a little is left in the glass you throw it and serves to clean the glass
    Before all pulled down in the floor , now there are special containers to collect cider
    Spring is the time of the "espichas", when they open the barrels with the new cider, if you match this time, go to a cellar is a good experience
    Some suggestions for eating with cider: "pixin" tapas, empanada, tortos, cachopo ...
    No vamos a hablar de sólo de un restaurante o de bar, sino que de todos los que están en la calle Gascona
    Suelo ir a "Tierra Astur"que es muy bueno, pero puedes ir al calle y decidir donde te tomas una sidra y algo de comer , pues todos son buenos.
    Aquí hay que hablar de la sidra, que se hace fermentando el jugo de las manzanas y es la bebida típica de Asturias
    La sidra hay que despertarla, así que no te asustes cuando la vayas a tomar y veas que bajan el vaso y levantan la botella para !tirar" desde arriba la sidra .
    La etiqueta de la sidra requiere que todo el mundo beba en el mismo vaso. Te sirven un poco y hay que tomarlo todo en cuanto te lo sirven, lo poco que quede en el vaso lo tiras y sirve para limpiar el vaso
    Antes se tiraba todo al suelo, ahora ya hay recipientes especiales para recoger la sidra
    En primavera es la época de las espichas, cuando abren los barriles con la nueva sidra, si coincides en esta época, vete a una
    Algunas sugerencias para comer con la sidra: pinchos de "pixin", empanada, tortos, cachopo ...

    La Paloma: Vermu - Vermouth - Vermut

    by elpariente Written Apr 9, 2016

    Vermouth may have two meanings, one is an aromatized wine, a type of fortified wine flavoured with roots, seeds, herbs, spices.
    The other "to take the vermú" is used at midday, when you have a vermouth and some tapas with the friends .
    This is the right place to go , you may have a vermouth of 1900 with a tapa of "Prawns with Raincoat"

    Vermut puede tener dos significados, uno es un vino aromatizado, un tipo de vino fortificado con sabor a raíces, semillas, hierbas y especias.
    El otro ",tomar el vermú", se utiliza al mediodía, cuando se toma un vermut y unas tapas con los amigos.
    Este es el lugar adecuado para ir, pues puedes tomar un vermut de Solera 1900, con una tapa de " Gambas con Gabardina" que no olvidarás
    Puedes tomar también otras cosas

    Casa Conrado: Upscale Asturian

    by karenincalifornia Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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

    by Richard.GVA Written Mar 25, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: Calle Cascona

    Directions: 5 mins walk from the Cathedral

    Punta y Coma: Love the name, the food.....eh!

    by garridogal Written Nov 22, 2010

    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.
