When we hit Ribadasella there was a market going on, which made us very hungry.
These ‘bollos’ were some sort of unfamiliar squash or melon.
These round (redonda) empanadas looked good enough for a picnic but the weather was threatening rain.
Blue cheese from the region came highly recommended.
More cheeses (quesos), mostly goat (cabra) or sheep (oveja) cheese, and some of it smoked (ahumado).
More rolls and tasty empanadas.
The hard sausages from the region. Of course we were starving after seeing all this food that we were easily enticed into this little café…
…where we had some sandwiches (bocadillos) and a beer (cerveza). Even this light lunch came with free tapas, two little sausages on bread and an onion ring each.The road trip from Ribadeo to Luarca to Aviles to here, ending up in Canga de Onis. More on our October 2014 trip to Spain.
The futuro melons *piel de sapo* (toad-skin) are quite common in our supermarkets. Bollo must be a brandname?
Good to know – are they tasty?
Yes, they are. Very refreshing.
