Introduction

Eating tapas is popular in many parts of Spain, and Vigo is no exception. The streets in the old quarter are packed with restaurants, and most offer a variety of dishes from the most innovative tapas to the most traditional ones.

Tapas are small servings of food which cost a fraction of the price of a full portion. If you’re feeling hungry you can get a full-sized serving (ración) or a media ración (half-portion). In Galicia  it’s common for friends to order a few raciones or media raciones between them and share.

Of course, every area of Spain has regional dishes, and Galicia’s specialties are often things you’ll have never heard of before, with Galician names. 

Food in Galicia is not just food, it’s part of the local culture. It’s not the paella-style food you might have seen at Travel shows. If there is something that sets Galician food apart is the simplicity and the focus on fresh produce.

There is amazing fish and seafood, great meats , tasty cheeses (with three designations of origin: Tetilla, Arzúa and San Simón), all sorts of greens…
