local specialities in Galicia

Galacian Bread

Why not sample some of the delicious local cuisine from the Galicia region?

They're not pretty to look at, but goose barnacles are a speciality of the region. If a barnacle isn't for you, Galicia's fish markets groan beneath the wealth of other fish and seafood: the fishing tradition here goes back centuries, and Vigo is the largest fishing port in Europe (in the world, only Japan has bigger).

Empanadas are pastry parcels that can contain fish, meat or even cheese. They're often thought of as an Argentine food - this is because many Gallegos emigrated to Buenos Aires. Wash them down with a glass or two of the local Albariño or Ribeiro wine.

The town of Padrón is famous for its peppers. They may look small, green and innocuous but beware: while some are flavoursome and sweet, others pack a fearsome punch.
