If you are in Oviedo and fancy a nice dinner, please visit El Fondín at Pza Trascorrales. It houses only a few tables so make sure to either book a table or be early - you do not want to miss out this. We had the ravioli with foie, it was magnificent. Dessert was deep fried milk (never had before)... More
