Two hidden treasures in Zamora: its best restaurants


Reading time 2 minutes


The Hermit (Ctra. N-630 Benavente-León, km 1.2 tel. 980 63 22 13) $$$

Óscar Manuel and Pedro Mario Pérez are an example of Spanish tenacity. The Zamora forcefulness combined with the creative effort to give it the perfect twist.

The proof is in its cod with stewed baby lamb, crunchy bacon and chervil oil, a sea and mountain in the manner of land.
Or in his great work with fish beyond carnivorous temptation. Or in the winking traveler with chili peppers, peppers and rocotos.

A house that always deserves a second round. Nino Martínez and Marcelino Calvo direct room and cellar, which pays special attention to the wines of the region .

Lera (Conquistadores Zamoranos, s / n tel. 980 66 46 53) $$$

Undisputed temple of hunting and cooking in Tierra de Campos. They have a small and cozy hotel because it is worth (much) worth the visit.

Since Luis Alberto Lera took the reins of the Labrador Inn founded by his parents, Cecilio and MInica - he, genius and figure; she always on the stove - her fame does not stop growing. And the reason is none other than his effort and ability to continue surprising from hunting, legumes and stews. From the kitchen leave the always superlative marinades, the pigeons, the mushrooms - those trumpets with jowls and truffles - the rib of wild boar with curry, the rice with hare or the turtle dove with egg and pigeon consommé.

Ramón attends room and cellar effectively and the love of who is part of this key family to understand the best traditional cuisine of our country.

The feast continues at dinner, when Minica prepares her glorious french fries and Luis Alberto takes some other ace out of his sleeve .
