Why do we recommend Tapería A Avoa?

Santiago de Compostela (the name means field of stars) has been a crossroad for centuries. Although it is rather easy to identify dishes that are typical to eat in Santiago, it is not so easy to determine which ones originated in the city. Examples of Galician dishes worth-trying in Santiago de Compostela are the following:
The first dish in the list is with pulpo a feira .octopus- (which is a typical dish nearly everywhere in Galicia -probably above all in Lugo). The second dish is empanada (the filling can consist of scallops, tuna, cod, chorizo or tuna, to name but a few). The third dish is Padron peppers (from the village of Padron in Galicia). We will end our short list with the famous Santiago cake.

Style of this restaurant

Tapas: What started as a solution to keep flies out of drinks (namely wine) has become a type of food and a fantastic informal way to sample high quality ingredients and dishes, eat adventurously and in an affordable way. Some important things to bear in mind: do not get intimidated by a crowd at the bar. On the contrary, when you search for tapas bars or restaurants the first thing you do is to look for people: high turn-over implies you will not get dried-out food. Some bars offer raciones (dinner plate-sized) but also medi raciones smaller tapas (saucer-sized). The good thing about the small versions is you can try more things.Prices may vary if you stand or enjoy a table. This specially applies to the terraces. Tapas are also referred to as pintxos (in basque country) or pinchos.
