As capital of the province, Soria gives you the opportunity to enjoy every corner of the region. If you want advice about what to eat in Soria we recommend you start with an appetizer like torrenillos or torreznos –marinated bacon strips similar to pork rinds-that have become classic tapas.
Among the most traditional recipes is lamb stew- a stew with onion, garlic and tomato- or roast. The migas del pastor, once a staple food in the region, is currently the most popular Sorian dish, with butter, garlic and paprika with the option to add sausage or torrenillos. However, the authentic Sorian migas are served with grapes.
