Casa Zaca Restaurant – La Granja (Segovia)

on Jan 3, 2013 in Eat and Drink | 1 comment

 Located in the center of La Granja or the Royal site of San Ildefonso you can eat at Casa Zaca. Hundreds of years ago the building was used as a Coaching Inn (or Mail Coach-House) and also offered meals to travelers. However, in the 40´s Mr. Zacarias Peinador opened its doors to a restaurant; cooking for us the traditional dishes of the local cuisine.

Before coming to this beautiful town, I asked a friend that lives there where was the best place to eat at La Granja. Without hesitation, my friend recommended as his number one choice: Casa Zaca. Therefore, a couple of weeks ago (dec-2012) I went and tried for the first time Casa Zaca’s delicious dishes. They have many dishes that are based on local foods, such as: lamb (cordero), piglet (cochinillo), local beans (judiones de la granja) and others. However, I am a soup-like dishes lover, therefore, I tried the local beans called Judiones. The Judion is a pretty big bean, about one and a half inch long by one inch thick. These beans are cooked in a stew with spanish brown sauce and different types of pork sausages; it’s simply delicious!

Overall a great culinary experience and it was not that expensive. I recall we paid about 40 euros per person including a decent wine. I was enjoying so much eating that I forgot to shoot many pictures…
