We thoroughly enjoyed our time and meal at Pulpeira de melide de Lola, a restaurant enjoyed primarily by locals. Arriving there late in the afternoon for lunch, we got a good table in the corner, and were taken aback by the atmosphere - lots of people were still there and all having lively conversations. It was national literacy day (May 17), an important day. We received a gift of two books from the restaurant owners - very generous and much appreciated.
We spoke with a patron sitting next to us, who helped us understand the significance of the day, and with whom we exchanged a good conversation on our common experiences. As we were on our way to Haro next, and going to wineries where he knew owners, he offered to call ahead saying we had met - a wonderful example of the generosity of the Spanish people.
The meal was very good - we ordered Octopus, asparagus and tuna tartar. Each was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable. The octopus was first up - it was tender, flavourful and got eaten rather quickly! Next was the tuna tartar and toasts - excellent flavours, and oh so succulent. The white asparagus came last ... very creative and terrific flavours.
This was an excellent experience. If you want to enjoy a traditional Galician meal, this is the place to go.
