Here I go...

Finding magic under the stars of the Camino Santiago de Compostela

May 9, 2013 - Cenar en Zafra

In looking for an affordable dinner, I stumbled across two restaurants that were serving dinner at 5:30. As you who have walked in Spain know, it's neatly impossible to find food between 4 and 8 pm.

The first restaurant I found served dinner for 9 euros. It was in the Plaza Grande. But I didn't care for the menu

I continued to walk down toward one of the two remaining gates of the city and I found this sweet restaurant, la Marquesa. It is an old olive mill and the floor is glass so you can see where the olives have been ground, pressed, and bottled.

The food was excellent. El Menu del Dia for 8 euros. I had ensalada mixta, lomo plancha, batatas, vino and a chocolate pie with molasses to die for. And I was hoping to lose weight on the Camino!
