Welcome to the Food Trip Series, where you can tour a certain corner of Spanish gastronomy in one day, going south, east, west, and north, visiting towns, regions, and local pubs, and having a meal that reflects the particularities of that specific location, all without leaving Dallas.
Our first stop is a Sidreria (Cider House) in the Basque Country. Eating at a Sidrera – or Sagardotegi in Basque – is a very special Basque ritual. It dates back to the days when people would travel long distances to buy cider from a baserri, a typical farmhouse that produced cider. The idea of visiting these baserris and eating there grew linked, either because hosts would serve food after a long journey or because guests would bring their own food. Nowadays, the Basque countryside is peppered with these Sidreras, which provide a very specialized menu based on traditional Basque cuisine: codfish, meat, and vegetables.
Codfish is traditionally served at the start of a Sidrera meal, first in an omelette, then with fried green peppers. Txuleta follows, a thick steak on a bone often grilled rare.
Join us for our own tribute to these beautiful Spanish restaurants and enjoy a genuine Sidreria cuisine with us. Get your ticket and join us anytime between 6p and 8p. Our menu features the following items per person:
