For eating in Leon, how can we not talk about the tapas in the local bars and restaurants! The Húmedo neighborhood, as well as others like el Romántico or Eras de Renueva, are all known for their tapas. The Cervecería Odín, on the path that connects Ordoño II and Burgo Nuevo, is a small establishment with spectacular pinchos served with drinks. An obligatory stop after visiting the Catedral de Leon. Another option for eating in León is the Cervecería Las Tapas, with every possible drink you could think of, where you can order a ‘sartenuca’ (as they call it) with french fries, egg and bacon, blood sausage or picadillo (your choice) and a bit of bread.
In the Barrio Romántico we highlight Camarote Madrid, with great tapas of paella, salmorejo, and patatas caseras. In this area you can also try Bar la Trébede and try their tapas with chorizo a la sidra, cheeses, picadillos…
In the Barrio Húmdeo, Bar El Infierno, you can have high-quality embutido (a kind of sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), octopus and squid. Another place for a good blood sausage in this neighborhood is Bar la Bicha. And very close to these two places is Bacanal, where you can have a typical cecina de Leon.
Another interesting place for more contemporary tapas is Becook, a restaurant with a short menu that fuses local products and exotic flavors.
