Tapas dining along the Rúa do Franco and A Raíña
As this is your first night in Santiago, we suggest that for dinner you choose the typical Galician helpings. This is a good way to enjoy a bit of all the essential dishes of the Galician cuisine, such as octopus cooked feira style, stewed meat ao caldeiro, Galician pie (empanada), thinly sliced seasoned meat (raxo), sausalge filling (zorza),pig’s ear; shellfish from the Galician rias, such as mussels, cockles and clams; or seasonal products such as Padrón green peppers or xoubas (small sardines). You can try all these delicacies in the many taverns and restaurants located in the old quarter. The Rúa do Franco and Raíña streets house the majority of these establishments.
