Flag of GaliciaGalicia - Dining

The recommendation to try the fish and seafood in Galicia is entirely superfluous advice. At any point on the coast, the traveller will find a highly varied and tempting offering which cannot be covered in just one paragraph. We will merely limit ourselves to mentioning the oysters from Arcade, the almeja clams from Carril, the goose barnacles for the Costa de la Muerte, the lobsters from O Grove, the sea spiders from Malpica or Mugardos, the cockles of Noya and a long etcetera of well known seafood delicacies. But there are some specialities on the traditional and popular menu which should not be overlooked: the octopus, cooked and seasoned with paprika and oil, the empanada turnover, stuffed with pork lion, anchovies, tuna, vieira clams, mussels and the cheeses.

We can simplify the wines by saying that they have the common characteristic of a slight acidic, refreshing, fruity and light base. Connoisseur should try the Albariño wine. We will conclude (and we will do so without mentioning the tasty "inland" cooking), with the orujo eau-de-vie and the queimada punch, which we highly recommend to those who like stiff drinks.
