Thursday is pulpo day at this restaurant
This is the sort of place you only stumble apon when you've lived somewhere for a while, or get to read a review like this.
Tucked away on a backstreet and not looking particularly inviting for a foreigner you almost certainly would pass this place by. It is called "The orelles (The ears) bar".
Own of my wife's colleges at the local football association told her about this restaurant. A regular of theirs.
It's a tiny place. Never been renovated. Small tables crammed in. It's run by a family originally from Galicia in NW Spain.
If you are a pulpo connoisseur you have to go on Thursday for lunch like we did. Don't know about other days yet - maybe I never will. It is recommended you book on Thursdays so this is a speciality they do.
Very little choice for first plate.. Either tuna bake or pasta soup. Then the pulpo served with the traditional potatoes. Superb. One of the best renditions I ever had. And I've had a lot over the years. €23 for the whole meal each.
There are some basic choices for desert including yogurt or an orange.. yes that's how they keep so slim. If you looking for something bit more exciting.. there is almond cake from Galicia.. Tarta de Santiago de Compostela or the Marto, a sort of flan thing. if you are two.. get both and share as the tart was delicious but a bit dry.
