Ribadesella celebrates the third of the 15 to the 17 of February the third Oricon Gastronomic Days. February thus becomes the month of the oricios in the Eastern region of Asturias.
The riosellanos call them "arcinos" and nine establishments - seven restaurants and two wine bars - prepare special dishes on those days to delight lovers of marine flavors.
The restaurants Sidrería La Portiella, Fifteen Knots, Breakwater, Casa Antón, Casa Basilio, Casa Pacho and Sibariz will offer different menus with a price of 18 euros, not including drinks. The wineries La Mar Salada and La Taberna del Escribano also offer toast and tapas.
The first edition was a success and they sold 320 kilos of holes, this year they want to improve and try to reach half a ton; the oricios will be offered from classic dishes to very innovative proposals.
