Fabada Asturiana

When in Asturias, one must have a bowl of the delicious and filling Fabada Asturiana. Check out the photo below:

Checkout that blood sausage, bacon, beans, and more. All in one dish. When cooked properly, it’s a nearly all-day affair to steep all those elements into an excellent broth with the right flavor. I’ve had this many times in Spain. Always excellent.

Restaurante El Bernadino, 2014

As long as we’re in Segovia, Spain, let’s stop for lunch at El Bernadino, another favorite of mine, where I have dined many times.

Here you’ll find all the traditional foods of Segovia and Spain in general. You can sit inside or out. I like to sit inside.

I started with the fabada Asturiana, a delicious bean soup that could have been the entire meal, as you see in the next photo:

Next I had the roast baby pig, which I did not take a photo of because I was enthusiastically enjoying the meal. Sorry about that. However, here’s a look at dessert:

While this restaurant does serve quite a few tourists, you will not the significant population of locals dining there, too. It’s a busy place, but there are three levels of seating so you’re sure to get a table quickly. Enjoy a bottle of wine from the extensive list. Worth every euro.
