A Curuxa

When asked for a restaurant recommendations, a local would, without hesitation, most likely single out A Curuxa. The stone-wall tavern is another safe bet when it comes to dining on Galician specialities and seafood, with stand-outs such as pulpo (octopus), empanada pies, meats, and more - all paired with native Albariño wines.


As one might well-expect from the world's largest fishing port, seafood reigns supreme in Vigo, and is best enjoyed as part of traditional Galician offerings such as "polbo á feira" (or "pulpo a la gallega", octopus dusted with red paprika and sprinkled with oil). There is plenty beyond fine seafood, however - "lacón con grelos", for example, is traditional pork leg with greens, and Galician "empanadas" (or meat pies).
