A two star Michelin experience in Arzua? This is certainly a worthy detour and reward while on the camino trail.
I'd give you one perfect reason to go back here. Arzúa cheese slathered over Stuffed Pimientos. I know I'd hanker for this for a long time to come. Just the perfect appetizers before your caldo (soup).
Two soups were served, both equally good. The macaroni soup and the Caldo de Gallego or Galician broth made up of spinach, beans, potatoes and cabbage. Naturally, we tried BOTH!
For our main dish, we chose pollo (chicken), Galician cordero (lamb) and lengua (ox tongue). All local products sourced for this 2* Michelin resto which we all enjoyed with the local Galician wine claimed to be Julius Caesar's favorite!
This is truly one meal that makes for happy memories. Topping off the gastronomic experience were our 2 desserts: Tarta de Quezo and Tarta de Santiago (almond cake). Served with tea and coffee in lovely coffee and tea sets, of course.
New place, new tastes, new friends. And yes, we so love the rustic ambience of Casa Brandariz. Thank you, Maria for bringing us here!
From Arzua, hail a cab to bring you to Calle Dombodan, s/n, 15810 Arzua, A Coruña.
