Food on the Camino de Santiago

The question was:

There are lots of special opportunities to try new foods or regional specialties on the Camino, and wouldn’t it be nice to hear other people’s special food memories and have some tips on food favorites to look out for when you’re hungry and in need of calories after walking?

The Pilgrim Menu

Pilgrim Breakfast
If you are going to walk so many days, you need to find some good food along the way to keep you going. Spain has a lot of good food and wine, and even food especially for pilgrims.

The Pilgrim Menu is a menu, prepared for pilgrims, usually at a good price. The image above is one example. The way it works is that you choose one course from the ones listed under 1) and then one course from the list under 2). Bread+drink+desert included. In this example, the price is 9 euros.

The pilgrim menu is usually served during lunch only (14.00 to 16.00).
