On our way to Bilbao it wouldn’t cross our minds not to stop in this year’s Spanish Gastronomic Capital – Burgos.
Finding comfort under the shade of an umbrella and the freshness of a very well poured caña, the repast began.
First things first, we were greeted with some delicious Tomato Bread paired with a Pear Panna Cotta and Angulas for amuse-bouche.
Along came the grilled Asparagus with Hazelnut Butter and Boletus Mayonnaise, Splendid!
In the main courses they brought out the cavalry! I went for the Ravioli de Toro with Burgos Mashed Potatoes and my husband for the Pichon with Apricots. I can hardly say which one was the winner but I must say I would gladly go there again for a tiebreak.
We closed the deal with some Yemas de Burgos topped with a Manzanilla infusion, simply not my cup of tea.
What a delightful experience and a very nice way to start our second day on the road to Bilbao.
