Lugo Tapas Contest

Lugo Tapas Contest

Isn’t it ironic? A city where they offer you a free tapa with each drink anywhere holding a contest in which you have to pay for the tapas. Well, maybe not ironic, but your belly has to be ready for something like that. I’ve visited the city twice while this happened, they still offered you the free tapa even after ordering a paid one. I really wanted to try as many places as possible. It wasn’t possible to try more…

Mijo Minibar Strikes Again

Mijo Minibar Strikes Again

Ooops! I did it again! I went to Mijo Minibar and it was, as expected, delicious. Carlos and I decided to go do some busking in Vigo. We always love spending time there. After a morning playing in Ourense, we head towards Vigo in order to grab something to eat. Carlos suggested Mijo and I couldn’t say no. With our drinks came a glass of complementary olives and pickles, as well as some hummus. I was very glad about the…

Asian Food in Coruña’s new restaurant Koh Lanta

Asian Food in Coruña’s new restaurant Koh Lanta

It’s been a while since I’ve talked about one of my restaurant experiences. This is a good one for two reasons: I went twice and it’s Asian. It was my mum’s birthday a while ago and we all went to celebrate to Koh Lanta, a new restaurant in Coruña. I’ve taken a while to write about this because I’ve been busy with other stuff I had in mind, but I think it’s about time because their food is worth taking the…

Medieval Fair: Don’t break character and eat like they did back in the Middle Ages

Medieval Fair: Don’t break character and eat like they did back in the Middle Ages

I love Medieval fairs, Renaissance fairs or any other themed fair that is supposed to be a recreation of another period of time I haven’t been able to live. Of course, I appreciate them more when they are so well done that you feel awful for not being dressed up. That is not the case of the one I’ll be talking about in this post. I am fascinated by how they sell anything that is handmade (not always, though) even…
