Since 2009, a distinguished selection of Valencia’s best restaurants offers attractive menus, at a more than affordable price, thanks to a new initiative funded by Turismo Valencia. The Valencia Cuina Oberta- Restaurant Week, under which name this popular initiative is known, will this year take place between 20 and 29 June. By making reservation on its website, users will be able to access a wide selection of taster menus for 20 euros (lunch) and 30 euros (dinner).
The city of A Coruña is bursting with a wide range of popular, authentic, traditional and up and coming restaurants, and there is certainly no shortage of delicious eateries in town. But the one that tops all the polls consistently and never fails to disappoint is the renowned Alborada, which has been awarded a much-coveted Michelin star for the fourth year running.
We’ve heard a lot about the bounty of the Basque kitchen in recent years, but Galicia is every bit as blessed with a veritable cornucopia of gorgeous ingredients that form the basis of an honest but delicious culinary tradition. From the deep blue waters off its coast comes some of the finest fish in Europe, from the rocky cliffs and coastal lagoons delicious shellfish, and from the lush green pastures, forests and fields a range of produce that includes first class dairy products, meat, vegetables, bread and mushrooms.
Anyone who has not tried these delicious delicacies before, would be forgiven for giving them a wide berth should you innocently stumble across them in a Galician fish market. But although percebes are often described as slightly odd looking, they are known to reduce seafood fans to a bunch of salivating shipwrecks. Those in the know say that they have a sweet lobster taste and are usually boiled and served piping hot – washed down with a glass or two of the local Galician Albariño wine, of course.
Dublin has its Guinness, Granada boasts Alhambra beer, Sevilla Cruzcampo and in Málaga they brew Victoria beer. But here in Galicia, walk into any watering hole and you will come across a rather tasty beverage called Estrella Galicia (Galician Star). This pale lager is drunk in bars across Spain, with plenty more exported to markets including Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico and the United States. In fact, annual production now tops more than 100 million litres!
