[ May 2014 ] Bermeo in Spain is a fishing town.
We asked for the information of restaurants at the tourist office.
She recommended Akelorre saying ” grilled fish there is very good”.
The restaurant we finally found seemed like a canteen for laborers.
And a stern woman explained that day’s menu bluntly.
There was not a written menu.
She understood only Spanish (and maybe Basque language), so our communication did not go easy.
When we asked what fish they had, she answered “cod”.
I wanted to ask about the grilled fish, but it was impossible.
So we had the cod, which was fortunately very good.
As for the starter, she served stir-fried green peas and delicious ham.
When she saw that I ate all, she showed her smile first time as if to say “See? It was good, wasn’t it”.
