The Great Eel Feast. We are huge funs of eel, especially japanese unagi, so there was no question about heading out to the 12th edition of this sagra in Breme this past weekend. The town is also famous for their sagra of the red onion, but if I had to choose the best one between the two, I’d have to say that they are both fantastic, with plenty of dishes to choose from and they’re also well organized.
The main difference is that this sagra is held just around the corner at S. Pietro’s Abbey, and not at the sports field. This gives visitors the opportunity to tour some parts of the abbey such as the kitchen area used by the friars back then, and also the crypt. We went to Sunday’s lunch seating and it must’ve been around 30°C – maybe that’s why it wasn’t so busy – but fortunately there was a breeze blowing across the cloister and tables were set in the shaded galleries.
