Gastronomic route through United States
What better than to take advantage of the camping getaway to enjoy the rich gastronomy of our country? Prepare your tour through the different regional specialties and enjoy a most tasty trip. Today we bring you some exquisite proposals so that you can enjoy your gastronomic route through the United States to the fullest.
1 # Barcelona and its markets
We start in the city with a somewhat different proposal: discover the foodmarkets. The emblematic Boquería market is a mandatory stop on this visit to the Barcelona markets, but it is certainly not the only one. If you want to escape the bustle of tourists who visit it, you can visit the Sant Antoni market . This unique place and recently reopened after the renovations, will make you fall in love both for its own architecture and for all the fresh and local produce stalls it houses. If what you want is a market where you can sit down to eat, we have two fabulous ideas for you. On the one hand, the Mercado Princesa on Flassaders del Born street is a 14th century palace full of charm, with different stops for you to choose your dishes before going to occupy the table in the corner that you like the most. On the other hand, we recommend a unique place that, although it is a restaurant and not a market, remember its arrangement by spaces: the Nacional , located on Paseo de Gracia. A unique gastronomic space in which to taste traditional recipes of the country without leaving Barcelona.
2 # Seafood in Galicia
A look at Galicia for lovers of fish and shellfish, which acquires international fame and renown in this region. Make your getaway coincide with the dates of the local Fair (for example, San Froilán de Lugo) and delight the palate with a Galician octopus (or pulpo da feira) prepared on the spot and served with cachelos (cooked potatoes). Choose the touch of paprika that you like the most and accompany it with a good wine from the region. To taste the best seafood in Galicia, visit the Atlantic coast, in the Rías Baixas, specifically the town traditionally considered "seafood paradise": O Grove, which celebrates the Seafood Festival every year in October.
3 # Mallorca: a delight for the senses
There are many reasons to discover the island of Mallorca, but without a doubt one of them is to discover the rich local gastronomy and the products of the territory. We challenge you to go in search of the best ensaimada on the island, this traditional sweet dessert from Mallorca. On this Balearic island, you will enjoy beautiful views over the Mediterranean while you taste the typical recipes of the area, such as Mallorcan fried or Mallorcan soup. And of course, you cannot leave without trying a sobrasada from Mallorca, classified as a protected Geographical Indication.
4 # Gastronomic routes of Tarifa
This proposal will interest lovers of good food and quality products, who have also thought about visiting Tarifa, the southernmost city in Europe, for its beautiful beaches or for the internationally famous kitesurfing championship. In Tarifa there are occasions such as the Iberian Route in December and the Tuna Route in May / June, ideal for preparing your gastronomic route through the United States.
Of course you can organize as many gastronomic routes around the peninsula as you like, since you will find in each region of the United States local products, traditional recipes and regional specialties that will make your camping getaway more interesting and tasty. Do not miss, for example, the cachopo and cabrales cheese in Asturias, the pintxos from the Basque country or the incomparable Valencian paella. And above all, do not forget to ask at your campsite for their recommendations regarding dishes to try and restaurants to go to, since it is the local people who will show you the best places.
