Oviedo, a Gastronomic City


The cuisine of Oviedo, like that of all of Asturias, is rooted in Asturian culinary tradition, which is characterized by the use of fresh, high-quality ingredients, especially seafood and produce from the land. Cider also plays an important role in the region's gastronomic culture.

Some emblematic dishes of Oviedo include:

  1. Fabada Asturiana: A traditional stew made with fabes (white beans), chorizo, black pudding, and bacon, slowly cooked until the ingredients meld into a flavorful broth.

  2. Cachopo: A hearty and delicious dish consisting of two large beef fillets stuffed with ham and cheese, breaded, and fried.

  3. Bacalao a la sidra: Fresh cod cooked in Asturian cider sauce, with onion, garlic, and other spices, giving it a unique and delicious flavor.

  4. Asturian cheeses: Asturias is known for its excellent cheeses, such as the famous Cabrales, Gamoneu, and Casín, which are perfect for pairing with good cider.

  5. Traditional desserts: You can't miss trying Asturian rice pudding or casadiella, a sweet pastry filled with walnuts and sugar.

These are just a few examples of the rich gastronomic offerings you can find in Oviedo. The city is full of restaurants, cider houses, and bars where you can enjoy these delights and more. Enjoy your meal!
