All kinds of meat cooked over a wood fire to take away: chicken, rabbit, lamb shoulder, pork ribs...

The history of La Cresta is an easy one to remember. In a small establishment in Bescanó, built in 1991 and situated close to the road that crosses the village between Anglès and Girona, Narcís (a butcher by trade) decided to open a take-away rotisserie selling meat cooked over a wood fire, with chicken as the star product. Now it's become so well-known it pulls clients from across the south of Girona and other nearby towns, such as Banyoles, Olot and Figueres. You can find all kinds of grilled meat, including chicken, rabbit, lamb shoulder, pork ribs, pig head and cheek, and kid, as well as typical home-made dishes such as Catalan cannelloni ('canelons') and macaroni ('macarrons'), different kinds of salads and a variety of side dishes including potatoes, aubergine, courgette, croquettes and squid rings. Just take a look at the long glass counter showing off all the wares; you won't know where to start!
