Galicia Deli, Norwalk CT

  • s

Has anyone tried this place yet? It's about a block away from Valencia Luncheria.

  1. Sheri,
    I'm curious about Galicia Deli, too. When I saw the "Galicia," I thought, oh, maybe they have cider, but I suppose that with the "Deli" in there, chances for Spanish cider may be slim. I also remember a very good kind of chicken that's Galician in origin; I wonder if the restaurant has that. Quien sabe?

    I hope someone will chime in with some information. If you go, do report back.

      Cider, Galician chicken, what was I thinking? This place isn't Spain Spanish, and if I'd read the rest of the sign, I would have seen that it's Mexican and Peruvian food. I swung by there today. I hope some of you CT hounds will check this out, too, and tell us what you think.

      Pleasant store-front little place, with about five or six tables inside and a large one on the sidewalk.

      I ordered two items from the Cocina Mexicana part of the menu: a tamal verde and a taco al pastor. There wasn't any verde in the tamal verde, though masa itself (wrapped in corn husk) was moist and comfort-food-ish. Chicken inside was tender but nothing special; the thing really needed some salsa or something, which I didn't have. I'll try the rojo next time.

      But the taco al pastor was quite tasty. It came in a tortilla with sliced cucumbers, spring onion, white onions, and radishes on top of the pastor. The pastor part (I could taste cider vinegar...a marinade?) was flavorful.

      This place has potential. I need to try more things here. All the tables, except the one outside, were full today at noon.

        Gallegos are all around the world. Of course, they are often several generations away from the food of Galicia.
