You will find the Menu del día both at lunchtime and in the evening. It is usually very nutricious - apart from the invariable portion of chips (fine once in a while, but after more than 30 days of the same thing, it's awful). Try an à la carte menu once in a while. They are more often local specialities and make a change from the Pilgrim Menu. AnneSabineP said:Or do the local restaurateurs on the camino serve menu del dia too in the evening?
Anniesantiago said:Buy an onion, some garlic, a tomato, and a filet of fish.
Heat some olive oil.
Put in the onion and fry until transparent.
Put in the garlic and fry just until heated.
Add the chopped tomato and a few pinches of salt.
Bring to a boil, then simmer until the veggies are soft.
Put your fish in this sauce, and poach for 5 minutes.
Serve with green salad and fresh bread.
I didn't have a can opener, but I found that most of the cans I wanted to use had the kind of pull-tab on them that made a can-opener unnecessary. The trouble with anything 'small' like a can opener, is that all those 'small' things add up, and before you know it, you are carrying an extra kilogram or two that you would prefer to do without when you are on the trail.squeezefrog said:Is it worthwhile to pack a small can opener?
