We have hotel reservations in VDC but have been looking at YouTube videos about Portuguese food and our mouths have been watering. Any recommendations of restaurants or menu del dia in VDC or on the Portugues Central in...

    Bread Cheese and Meat, Oh my!

    Hello Pilgrims! We are a month out from our month long journey and I am finally feeling those butterflies. Our family of four (two kids ages 4 and 2, and ourselves) have decided to take a 27 day journey and start in San Sebastian and end in Llandes. It is clear the Pilgirms are well taken care...

    Hello, I'll be walking the Camino Frances from the beginning of December this year until somewhere in January '18, by myself. I plan on cooking as much as possible, since I'll be travelling on a tight budget. So I have some questions regarding cooking, that I haven't been able to find...

    Packed lunches, people!

    I have read a few threads and had some conversations recently where people walking routes off the French Way for the first time were genuinely surprised that you can't get breakfast, second breakfast, lunch (and presumably afternoon tea with scones and crumpets) and frequent ice cold water...

    Cooking your own food

    Hi there! I'm planning on walking the Camino Frances in 2-3 months and have a pretty tight budget. So I was wondering whether it is possible to buy cheap ingredients (rice, lentils etc) in most villages along the way and cook them in most hostels instead of paying for the pilgrim meal ? Thanks...

    If the food in the fridge is not yours...

    Because of an injured knee, I am staying two night at Casa Elena's. As today is Sunday, ipon arrival in the village yesterday, I hobbled to the shop to buy food for today: yogourt, 2 oranges, a zucchini, a small onion, a pepper and a clara. Other pilgrims had kindly left me pasta and cheese as...

    Hey Coleen, when you walk the Camino Portuguese don't miss..

    In August I'll begin in Lisbon and walk the Camino Portuguese. I've been reading with zeal all the posts about that Way, and have noted in my Brierley's guide a few place mentioned by you that I will make an effort to see or stay in. What was a high point for you? Where was your best meal? Where...

    Santiago Airport Catering £££££££

    Just had a thought to share - the only food available at Santiago airport is horrendously expensive. At London Gatwick airside I usually spend £3 on a sandwich, drink and fruit to take on the plane (thanks Boots Meal Deal!), last time I was at Santiago it was EUR17 for the same in the...

    Pining for Galician cooking in London?

    In the spirit of positive business-as-usual upon which we pride ourselves in London, I wanted to give a big-up to a local restaurant in my barrio of Londres - run by two lovely ladies - Ana from Galicia and local Teresa: L'Oculto Wine Tapas Shop. They started out as a tiny import business...

    Notes to self after my Camino

    Background: I walked the Camino Portugues in September/October of 2016. It was dry all the way. In Pedron the doctor stopped me ("Please, do come back next year -- with better shoes!"). So I bought new shoes and broke them in by going by train to Coimbra and seeing that city. No success. So...

    Eating on the Camino de Madrid

    My apologies if this has been beaten to death but my search didn't turn up anything specific. How difficult is it to find bars/tiendas/mercados on the CdM that are reliably open? On the Frances as everyone knows most every little pueblo has a bar or three. From what I'm gathering, not so on...

    Having spent most of the last two weeks walking along the Camino Frances I have noticed a disturbing trend. The further west we go the quality of tortilla seems to be decreasing. Right through Navarra the tortilla was absolutely fantastic. In the province of Rioja while still good the tortilla...
