The Asturian capital is an important gastronomic and cultural center, full of monuments. Here we can find a great variety in the gastronomy, which is a combination of traditional cuisine with innovative touches. Quality products, with D.O.P and very tasty. Also, there are many restaurats and bars, reason why you will be able to choose the ones that attract you the most. Tapas or a la carte, eating in Oviedo is an unforgettable experience!

Oviedo, the capital of Asturias, combines tradition and modernity in all aspects, and gastronomy couldn’t be different. You will find many delicious things to eat in Oviedo, where all of the specialties of the region are found. Take a walk around the Fontán Market and discover its meat, fish and earth products. Don’t loose the opportunity to enjoy the gastronomic journeys, such as La Ascención, forty days after Easter, when the inhabitants of Oviedo eat a menu that includes a vegetable stew. As a main dish, the gobernada meat that the chefs cook in front of the visitants.

The Day of the Desarme, in October, has as a main tradition to eat a simple menu Isabelino style with chickpea, spinach and tripes, and enjoy a siesta after. Another celebration of this region if the Desfile de América, in September.

But this cosmopolitan town doesn’t forget its origin, reason why the traditional fabes with chorizo, blood sasage and ham, and their famous hake a la sidra (cider) are always present. Regarding the desserts, try their cheese: the Casín with D.O.P is produced in the region as it’s great. Some traditional sweets are the carbayones (small puff pastries made of almond, egg, sugar and some sherry drops), which are offered in the ancient bakeries of the town.

The centric Gascona street, a tapas region, has become the Cider Bulevard. Here you will find many places to try natural cider, such as La Pumarada and Tierra Astur – which also has an autoservice system. In Tierra Astur, we recommend you to try the mushrooms with cabrales cheese.

If you are looking for a charming place, the restaurant Casa Amparo offers the perfect tapas to share with your couple. Even though the prices are kind of high, it is worth it to pay a little bit more here. The bocartes with Iberic ham will be a good starter option. The cidery La Manzana has a menu that is great to taste the specialties of the region.

Another option to eat gourmet tapas is the Taberna del Zurdo. A less formal tapeo where you could try the snails filled with lujo. High prices, but the innovative recipes are worth it.

Between the many places where you could eat in Oviedo, we are going to mention some. The Asturian chef Nacho Manzano, who owns two Michelin stars, oppened in Oviedo the Restaurante-casa de Comidas Gloria, in the Cervantes street. Interesting, traditional cuisine with a vanguard touch. Perfect to have lunch or dinner, and their ham croquetas are one of our favorite dishes. The rice is the specialty of the restaurant.

If you want to try the cachopo (two calf steaks stuffed with ham and cheese) at a small price we suggest the restaurant Monte Naranco, at the Menéndez Pelayo street, where you will also find portions. Acceptable results, but not estraordinary.

If you are looking for a daily menu, go to the Tabernilla de Oviedo. They have more elaborated dishes that scape from tradition. You also have a lot of options in their menu, and their portions are generous without being too bid. Ideal to have a vermouth, wine or beer. If you like to try new things, they have Australian (not Asturian!) dishes. They also serve a delicious calamari in their ink stew.
