LIRESCA_RESTAURANTE_ELCAMINO

With this post we resume the activity in our blog.

It is a different post from the usual ones, and it was born with the aim of providing calmness in the face of the pandemic we are experiencing due to COVID-19.

History can help us put into perspective what is happening with the current pandemic and, although it may seem otherwise, the severity of this outbreak appears to be far from the deadliest outbreaks.

There have always been and there will always be epidemics. It is part and parcel of nature. We need to be aware of it, and learn from past experiences to be able to overcome these outbreaks.

So, from LiresCa we would like to send some calmness and hopeWe would also like to inform you that we are working to provide a safe environment for everyone the day we can open our doors again. We know that training is an asset, and in Liresca we have the privilege to count with highly qualified people among our management in order to face this challenge. We are also working with specialised consultants and we are attending specialised health and safety training that will allow us to be efficient without losing the friendliness and warmth that characterize our work.

There were many people who passed through LiresCa during these mont…

DID YOU KNOW? On the beach of Lires, the fishing of the `lubión´ is carried out using a sickle

On the beach of Lires, in the coldest months of winter, you can fish for a curious small bodied fish (maximum 35 cm), elongated, pointed head and blue-green in colour. It answers to the name of "lubión",  although in other locations it is known as "lanzón, pipión or pixilin". Although its fishing is not usually done for sport, but rather for bait, in Lires it is tradition to fry them in oil and then savour them at the table. The smallest specimens are eaten whole with spine and head. T…
