Pilgrim is a Spanish regional restaurant (opening in April, 2018) that takes its inspiration from the routes of the Camino de Santiago. Before launching their permanent site there is a series of pop-ups designed to showcase their food and drink - with a menu inspired to take you on a culinary journey through northern Spain.
Each incarnation of the pop up is dedicated to a different route. Their first menu “The French Way” reflects the 796km journey between St Jean Pied de Port and Santiago de Compostela. With a heavy focus on meat and seafood, Pilgrims priority is to serve interpretations of regional dishes with a contemporary twist. Key dishes on the menu include a charcoal talo with Iberico pork short rib and a play on Galicia’s famous dish “Pulpo al feria” (pictured), the menu culminates in a reimagined “Torta de Santiago” a desert rooted into the history of the Camino.
Tickets are for a 6-course tasting menu, each course named after a town or city along the Camino de Santiago and represent the regional style of cooking and produce of its namesake. Priced at £45.
