How sad, my last night in A Coruna and there is still so much left to see and eat!
Just came back to A Taberna de Cunqueiro where I came for a drink a couple of nights ago. Lots of people were drinking vermouth with orange from the barrel. Obviously had to try it and I quite like it. Also it comes with half a meal for free of Galician soup, cheese and a square bit that I thought was bread but when I picked it up was some ham hock/terrine thing. Tasty!!
Also goes down pretty well with a plate of scallops!!
Thought they were glued at first, however realised they weren’t when I knocked one off (whhops), it seems people balance their cents in the wall of this place, figure it must be for luck:
Do I have to go home??
Clearly my last sunset is begging me to stay….
Yes they have a ‘baps out’ beach!! Forgot how liberal the Spanish are.
Spent the afternoon sunbathing in Riazor beach. Perfect weather and a massive beach with mostly Spanish women sunbathing and no kids. Suspect it may be slightly different tomorrow as it’s the weekend and it seems I’m here when the surfing competition is on. That should be great. Really looking forward to it. Saw them setting up today…
Caught a bit of sunset before dinner:
And this is what I plan to do at sunset tomorrow….maybe??!!
Love this place. They have a street named after beer (Estrella) and there are loads of bars down there:
There is a long pedestrianised area with stacks of tapas bars and restaurants that run between the main roads. It’s buzzing. Just stopped at O Sampaio for dinner round one. Went for croquettes and the most beautiful pork with melted cheese on. Mmmmmm. Accompabied by a glass of wine and water was only 8 euros (cost of just the wine at home!)
Also called into a place on Estrella Street – Taberna de Cunqueiro. Ordered a glass of wine and got a mini soup (no idea of what variety but tastes good), cured meat and cheese with bread. Brilliant. Coming back here!! Ordered a second glass and got the same again. Perhaps if they adopted this delicious food with wine approach in the bars in the UK perhaps people wouldn’t end up so battered (including me!!).
Topped off the evening with a limon crepe and beer down the food festival I found this afternoon and came back tonight:
Watched some dudes rock out in Spanish. I think I was the only person that didn’t know the words!!
They even gave me a spin of English in the form of Bob Marley:
They were surprisingly good and finished off with Maroon 5.
Food/music festival, surfing competion – couldn’t have timed it better. But will i hit the block party tomorrow, that is the question???
