We came here for the pulpo. Yet we had many other good stuff in mind. Like the razor clams locally called navajas. But pulpo takes the cake. And this galician restaurant in Calle Victoria just a hop and a skip away from Puerta del Sol promises the freshest pulpo or octopus.
The paprika-sprinkled octopus tastes as good as it looks. Best eaten with another favorite dish from Northern Spain : Pimientos de Padron. How we all love this sweet chilis! I have yet to eat a spicy pimiento de padron. Lucky me 😄
Now, if you've come here to really eat and drink, you'd satisfy your cravings even with just these 3: pulpo, pimientos y navajas. Never fails. Trust me. Have a jarra of sangria to drink or some cerveza o sidra. Buen provecho!
