Pizzería La Competencia on the Ruta del Vino

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Here’s a tip for all you young entrepreneurs! Want to make sure your new bar is massively popular? Offer free slices of pizza with every drink. And make the drinks crazy-cheap.

Pizzeria-La-Competencia

It works for Pizzería La Competencia, on Calle de Manuel Pedregal, a street otherwise known as Oviedo’s “Wine Route”. I couldn’t believe my ears when the waitress said “€2.20″, after setting down two large glasses of wine and two pieces of pizza. Just to make sure, we ordered another round. Yep, that was the price!

But, we wanted to make extra-extra-sure, so we ordered another round. All in the service of providing accurate information to our loyal readers.

As you might expect, this place gets really crowded in the evenings, and patience is required to find a seat. The perfect spot to start out a long night.

Restaurante Punto y Coma

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

On the recommendation of one of our new Asturian Twitter friends (@taxioviedo), we chose Punto y Coma for our first big lunch in Oviedo. When we arrived at 14:30, the place was already packed and we were lucky to get a table.

The reason for the restaurant’s popularity was apparent as soon the food was brought out: our first plates were tri-color pasta salad with tuna, and a massive helping of paella. In Spain, lunches are the day’s big meal and we were used to large portions, but this exceeded expectations. Spanish lunch menus always consist of two plates, but I was already full by the time I finished the first!

Still, when my fillet of virrey arrived, served with his eye socket on the side as a macabre decoration, my hunger returned. Juergen had ordered beef, which was slow-cooked and extremely tender. If groans of pleasure are anything to go by, it must have been delicious.

Wine and bread came with the meal, and both dessert and coffee were served afterwards. All for €10 per person. That’s an incredible deal, even without taking into consideration the high quality of the food.

The menú del día changes daily, and we’ll probably be back frequently. We’d like to discover other great spots in Oviedo. If you know some, make sure to share with us, in the comments, Twitter or Facebook!
