    Is it possible to pay for a meal at an albergue you're not staying at?

    Being a vegetarian I like to plan ahead a little bit where my next meal is concerned. I notice that Albergue El Palo de Avellano in Zubiri is meant to do a nice vegetarian pilgrim's meal but I've booked a room in a different albergue for the night that doesn't do evening meals. Do albergues only...

    Percebes is what you really want!!!

    Mar 11, 2019...especially with a nice saline Godello or Albariño. As a winemaker looking for typicity I really appreciate how much these taste like everything that is lovely in the ocean. Having eaten these here and there over the last 20 yrs I'm always grateful to enjoy a few of these!

    OS Albergue in Boente

    Warning - this Albergue is ok for 11 euros, but don’t eat the offered dinner for 10 euros. Bad, bad, and bad, or else simply choose the vegetarian option, which looked better. I came off of the Norte-Primitivo today, and perhaps I was spoiled by some of the excellent food and great Albergues on...

    Food on the Norte

    So I have a few questions around the topic of food. For all you vegetarians, what kind of options were available as far as pilgrim meals go? I don't necessarily mind eating seafood here and there. It is coastal Spain after all, I would say if at any point in my life I should allow myself to...

    We arrive in Porto on the morning of July 13 and will walk to Vila Do Conde. 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...

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 £££££££

    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...
