» Traditional Dishes – Cangas
The local cuisine of Cangas do Morrazo is closely linked to the resources available in this area, especially fish and shellfish caught in the coast.
Always true to the Galician cuisine, Cangas offers traditional dishes such as Galician pie, shoulder ham with turnip tops, and tripes with chick peas. Among the favourite desserts, leche frita (fried custard powdered with sugar and cinnamon), filloas (a type of pancakes) and cheesecake must be mentioned.
Seafood is eaten throughout the year, whether mussels, clams, cockles, spider crabs, barnacles, natural oysters, etc. These extraordinary dishes are usually served together with the well-known Donón or Albariño de Hío, typical Galician wines.
Several factors contribute to the success of the cuisine from Vigo: the great tradition of Galician cuisine, which is one of the most varied, tasty and renowned cuisines in Spain; the wide variety of options; and the exceptional port of Vigo, which provides our markets and restaurants with the best raw material.
Vigo’s great diversity of gastronomic products is unique and especially representative of Galician cuisine, combining fresh farm and sea products. Therefore, in the markets and kitchens of Vigo you will find high quality products for all tastes and diets.
The art of oyster tapas was born in Vigo in the historic district. No one knows when, but they were already famous among the French troops of the Reconquest. At Pescadería Street you can enjoy these delicious bivalves at noon, accompanied by a good Albariño, a Ribeiro or a beer. The ostreiras is quite a spectacle opening their very fresh product with incredible skill and speed, much celebrated by the many customers who are barely waiting while hundreds of oysters are dispatched.
The exquisite and renowned fresh seafood and fish, recently arrived in port from all seas, has become a tapas: prepared according to tradition or with the unique knowledge of signature cuisine. It is an exquisite delicacy that can be enjoyed both in the most select restaurants and in modern taperías, in traditional taverns or on the terrace of any bar, at noon or at dusk.
