It seems as though it was planned for these dates intentionally. On these days when we are with a cold wave, wind and rain we are keen on having something piping hot for a meal.
Benidorm offers its antidote: the II Days of the Spoon, which is one of the 5 events that the ‘Gastonomic Benidorm’ program comprises.
During the II Days of the Spoon, which are being celebrated from 4th to 10th March, 19 restaurants of the city are offering especial menus of traditional dishes with an innovative touch at a fixed price of 20 Euros, such as Lentils, stews, Asturian fabada, cous-cous, beef stew, rice stew, ‘gazpacho manchego’, soup of fish and shellfish, hotpots…
The participating establishments are Barranco, Bar Angelillo, Casa Carmen, Condal, Esturión, Jardín Mediterráneo, Brasería Aurrera, La Cava Aragonesa, La Cuina de Ponent, La Ermita, La Familia, La Marina, La Sidrería Aurrera, La Taberna Andaluza, La Taberna del Colón, La Tapería Aurrera, Le Sol, Rías Baixas and Villa Venecia Hotel Boutique Gourmet A la Carta ‘Llum de mar’.
Below you may find a map with the location of the restaurants.
The full menus of each day can be found in the II Days of the Spoon’s leaflet, available for free at the Tourism Offices.
