A must while in the Asturias (in my case Gijon) is to try out a local Sideria.
A Sideria is a bar that serves a local cider. There are many to choose from. You order by the bottle which is the same size everywhere.
I enjoyed checking out one of the more popular ones called La Galana.
The cider is good but what is also fun is watching the cider men pouring. They place the bottle up above their head and the glass close to their knees and pour. Most do not look while they are pouring.
I did not get a video but this is what it looks like.
It wasn’t all cider…..
I also tried local dishes.
