Not so much a case of ‘eat me’ but ‘meat me’ at this wonderfully quirky shrine to Asturian cuisine outside of Oviedo. After you’ve seen one of the platu de carnes na parilla (mixed grill with steak, pork, ribs and chicken) specialities at Tierra Astur, you’ll marvel that there are any animals left in the area.
Don’t eat for a week before plonking yourself down in a seat inside a barrel booth as portions are huge and hearty… and ridiculously good value. A four course slap-up feast that includes the mixed grill with wine or Asturian cider and coffee can cost around €18.
I cried when I had to leave Tierra Astur – because I couldn’t manage all the food and had to leave a sinful amount of it behind.
