Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

I, too, often ate in San Juan Ortega at the simple Bar Marcela and had good hearty food. Unfortunately the Bar Marcela which is located after the monastery complex could be quickly walked past by unobservant hurrying pilgrims. The bar is part of a local casa rural complex ; here is their web http://sanjuandeortega.com/

Hi Scott,
7 of us had dinner at the bar in San Juan a couple of nights ago and the food was delicious.

Many, various, and continuing.
... and if you read "The Great Westward Walk," you'll see the locals gather round the finest morcilla at a little bar in Quintanilla, a four-house town near Cardenuela de Riopico (a little off the marked camino after Sto. Domingo.)

...on a freezing cold and rainy day, the bar warm and steamy, at San Juan. Unforgettable. I agree, best morcilla.
