Mijo Minibar (Vigo)

Mijo Minibar (Vigo)

The other day I told you about Ruxe Ruxe in Vigo. Today, I want to talk about another restaurant in the same city, Mijo Minibar. The night before an amazing gig in Vigo, I couldn’t sleep. You can blame it on stress if you want, but I have the nicest type of insomnia, the one that comes in the morning. Sometimes, I simply wake up because I hear a noise at 5am and I can’t sleep again. It doesn’t bother…

Beef cheek stew (Superquick prep, long cooking)

On books, flowers and friendship

On books, flowers and friendship

It’s been a while since I’ve been complaining about St. Jordi’s tradition. For those of you who don’t know what it is about, St. Jordi is celebrated on April, 23rd. Tradition says women will get a flower as a present, while men will get a book. Ha! Yeah, sure, whatever. I know flowers are beautiful, and appart from being a bit allergic to some of them, I love getting flowers and plants as a gift. But, come on! Men get…

Ruxe Ruxe (Vigo)

Ruxe Ruxe (Vigo)

On Friday we had a great gig at La Fábrica de Chocolate in Vigo. Well, I say great, but appart from that it was kind of mental. Two people fainted at the beginning, and it was kind of difficult to stay concentrated. After the gig I could talk to Ana, one of them, and she was feeling better. I hope Dani, the other guy, feels OK now because I couldn’t talk to him after the show. Some made jokes comparing…

Forum Gastronòmic 2017

Forum Gastronòmic 2017

Two years ago, I saw some adverts announcing Forum Gastronòmic in Coruña. I had’t been there the previous month because I had to work, so when I saw the dates, my heart broke. I couldn’t go. So I waited for two long years hoping they bring it back to my city (with some thoughts of going to Girona or Barcelona where it is celebrated as well, but always work got in the middle). Finally it was February 2017 and I…

Murcia: CaféLab, KEKI, and other things on my mind.

Murcia: CaféLab, KEKI, and other things on my mind.

I remember the first time I went to Murcia was after a gig in Cabo Roig with Paddy Casey. We went there for one night and stayed a whole week. I’d like to blame Paddy’s charm. I don’t know how he does it but we keep postponing life whenever we’re near him. Of course, I’d like to make clear i’m saying this in a very good way. I had some friends there, in Murcia, and I remember one of them…

Buffet breakfast

Buffet breakfast

Although I’ve never been a fan of all-you-can-eat restaurants, I’ve always found a great comfort in buffet breakfast at hotels. I think it reminds me about my childhood when I used to travel to exotic countries with my parents. That moment of the day was my favourite part, no matter where in the world.   I remember a hotel in Tunisia, where I discovered the difference between soft and hard boiled eggs could be a matter of minutes. They labeled…

To my father

To my father

This breakfast goes to my father. The food itself is a pun on us both (papa-ya has his name on it and we are both kind of nuts 🤗) Because now that I have breakfast alone almost every day, I miss those mornings in which both of us had that warm glass of milk before we left for school. Those days before I had to stop having a glass of milk because I sing. Those days when I woke up…

Chicken Noodle Soup: Winter countdown

Chicken Noodle Soup: Winter countdown

A Winter wouldn’t be complete without chicken noodle soup. This basic recipe has everything you need to get cosy and warm in the last days of winter. It is pretty simple if you use premade noodles, a little bit more complicated if you make them yourself (but much better and rewarding) Ingredients: 1 chicken carcass (remove the meat and use for other recipes, except for some that you will need to add on top of the soup) 3 garlic cloves…
