Valladolid is the old capital of Spain and is a real hidden gem for the traveller. This restaurant was recommended to us by locals.
La Parrilla de San Lorenzo
Tucked away in an isolated part of Valladolid, deep in the catacombs of a medieval nuns monastery is the modern restaurant La Parrilla de San Lorenzo. If you don’t like meat, don’t go there. If you love meat then this place is a MUST VISIT. The waiter took us down to our table. The size of the place is vast. As are the size of their steaks. I had my rare. Cooked over an authentic medieval charcoal grill the damn thing was the best tasting steak I’ve ever had in my life. Well-cooked outer layer sprinkled with salt sealing in the pink, almost bleeding interior. Carnivorous delight. And where would an evening such as this be without the devilish gifts of Bacchus…
We got there a little early, as the Spanish tend not to eat until much later than we do in England. Amazingly, by time we departed this place was rammed full!
