That is how I was feeling during my last trip to Caceres. It was a last-minute day trip and I had not had the time to check local restaurants. Therefore, we just decided to head to the main square for lunch and ended up at Restaurante La Minerva.
•I have NOT being paid for writing it.
•I have NOT received any other form of compensation (free products or services) in exchange.
The place turned out to be excellent and was full shortly after we arrived. We went for the daily menu (starter + main + dessert for €12), but I may try the tapas next time I go. They looked yummy. Although there is nothing better than eating outside enjoying the autumn sun, the restaurant has a stylish and modern décor, so you may want to eat or have an evening drink inside in winter.
The only downside I found was that not only the English translation of the menu was poor, but also two mains (two of the best Iberian pork cuts) were missing in the English version. Was that on purpose or what?
Anyway, here are the courses we ordered:
Ensalada de hojas tiernas y queso de cabra
Mixed leaf salad with goat’s cheese, roasted peppers, crunchy fried onion and a delicious dressing with paprika.
Pasta casera con torta del Casar y boletus
Homemade pasta with wild mushrooms and torta del Casar (a PDO cheese made from raw sheep’s milk with a spreadable and creamy texture and very intense flavour)
