    From the very pleasant website Roads & Kingdoms, I enjoyed both the text as well as the photos from this article on things one should know about Galicia.

    Of course, and I apologize in advance Hindsy, there is a big emphasis on the food from this part of Spain. From pulpo a la Gallega and barnacles to a tarta de Santiago and a nice glass of Albariño, it’s hard to imagine a better place to satisfy the hungry pilgrim’s palate. The Barlow book that is referenced in the article looks to be a must for anyone interested in better understanding food and culture of northern Spain. The Kindle Edition is only $2.99. On the Roads & Kingdoms site, you’ll also find a city guide to Barcelona that contains some interesting and useful information. Buen Camino!

    More good eats! Check out this article on the restaurant El Racó de l’Agüir in the Sant Antoni neighborhood of Barcelona.

    A number of the Catalon dishes look quite tasty. In particular the sepionets or baby cuttlefish caught my attention. In Galicia, on our Camino Inglés last spring, we had a chance to eat sepia or choco as it’s referred to there, on a couple of occasions. The first time was in Ferrol at the restaurant O’Galo (highly recommended). The choco a la plancha was one of our dinner highlights along with pulpo, calamares, and pimientos de Padron.

    A few days later in Presedo at the only restaurant in town, were treated to a most delicious estofado de choco or cuttlefish stew. So, when in Spain, eat like the Spaniards and enjoy dishes that one may not typically find at home. Buen provecho!
