Galicia Spain food
Some of the very best Spanish food I have tasted has been served to me in Galicia. They know how to cook up here, in so called green Spain. It rains often here. The upside to that is it means you will want to be indoors. Eating.
The best seafood soup I have eaten anywhere was prepared for me by a restaurant in Galicia. Galicia is heaven for those who like their fish and seafood. The locally caught fayre is varied and plentiful. Octopus, Mussels, Langoustines, Scallops and Oysters are readily available. A particular favourite of mine is Pulpo a la Gallega (Galician octopus). A very spicy dish where the octopus is cooked with paprika. Caldeirada (Galician fish stew) is also a dish you should try your hand at. Made with potatoes and a white fish of your choice.
It can be cold and very wet in Galicia. That’s when your mind turns to making the traditional Caldo Gallego (Galician soup) that contains local vegetables, a ham knuckle, chorizo and white beans. And then there is the Empanada. Another Galician treat. It is a tasty snack that Galicians have eaten for centuries, to see of hunger. The fillings nowadays can be made of almost anything. Meat, sardines, clams.
If you find yourself in location such as the religious capital of Santiago de Compostela, or the smashing town of Pontevedra, be sure to try one. They are sold everywhere in Spain these days. But, like so much other Spanish food; it tastes best in gorgeous Galicia.
