Eating in Briviesca

Anyone who goes out to eat in Briviesca should keep in mind that it is an area of pure, authentic products. With the Burgos blood sausage being a prominent dish, eating in Briviesca is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. You can try pralines and visit local restaurants serving traditional cuisine. With less than 7,000 inhabitants, the locals offer a variety of options for eating in Briviesca.

The food of Briviesca, capital of the Burgos region of la Bureba, is predominated by the Burgos blood sausage—served with rice, pig’s blood, onion, salt, pepper and butter—as well as pork products in general, such as jamón, chorizo, and picadillo. Other products also exist. If you’re looking for advice regarding what to eat in Briviesca, you can’t skip the lechazo (lamb), roasted in a firewood oven, a star dish of the region.

In this ancient roman town, you can find many manufacturers of pralines, some of which are from the 19th century, although curiously it isn’t almond-growing land. In Briviesca almonds are washed—after coming from La Rioja, Ebro Basin, or the Mediterranean—with sugar and water and it is perhaps the limestone water of the region that gives the pralines that special texture that’s made them famous. If you have the opportunity to visit the Briviesca in mid-April, you can enjoy the Fin de Semana del Pincho de Primavera, where they offer an endless abundance of products and dishes typical to the region to eat at the establishments in the city. To finish any meal, we recommend the cuajada elaborada with sheep’s milk.

For eating tapas in Briviesca, we recommend that you go to the Bar Donosti, situated close to la calle Mayor. It’s right in the center of the city, and the meat-stuffed peppers are a great option.

If you like sweets and want to sample smaller portions—or take a great memory home—visit the Pastelería Sarralde in the Plaza Mayor. At this famous food store, in addition to their famous pralines, you will find other excellent products to take with you such as yemas de Santa Casilda, tartas de hojaldre, torta de manteca, etc.

Here we highlight some of the local places to eat in Briviesca. In the restaurant of the hotel Vallés the chef, Miguel Cobo, serves a fusion of traditional Castilian and new modern cuisine. The restaurant is specialized to serve celebrations and other events. El Concejo offers traditional cuisine with innovative touches.
