Your correspondent has been enjoying a much needed break travelling across the North of Spain, greatly enjoying the local hostelry along the way. And despite some big names, none have impressed me more than Restaurante La Corte de Pelayo, here in Oviedo.
It was recommended by a reliable trencherman and good friend as having a “good list of generosos” and if anything he sold them short – it is a superb list, of generosos (and wines of every kind) and once Hector, co-owner and Jefe de Sala spotted our interest, he revealed that that superb list only scratched the surface.
The restaurant itself is beautifully located and right up this blogger’s alley style-wise – friendly and unfussy but classy and elegant – and the food too was a great balance of hearty Asturian fare with a touch of class. We had two grand prix level dishes – fabada (ranked 4th in the world in 2019) and cachopo (the all Asturias champion) – and with no disrespect to the cider we have been swigging away the wines here were the perfect accompaniment.
Superb stuff and many many thanks for a cracking lunch.
