It’s nice to find a casual and comparatively inexpensive place to eat lunch (or dinner, for that matter) in Salamanca, and Colonial de Goya hits the mark. The closer you stick to Spanish classics, though, the better. Chicken brochettes with sweet and sour sauce, for example, are not half as tasty as the spiced lamb brochettes, which consist of lamb brisket pounded thin and rolled in North African spices. Sea bream with tangerine sauce and sautéed artichokes is a thoroughly successful “light” dish. Even traditionally weighty dishes like foie gras get a little lighter touch. Here it’s served as a terrine with peach jam.
