Heading to the land of pulpo & Alabrino for my honeymoon in early June. Any must have's or rec'd. We are thinking of Pontevedra and maybe Orense.
Congratulations. One website I found of immense use in Pontevedra is:
Written by a guy who lives there... unfortunately, he now says his favorite bar may have changed hands, which is a bummer because I was going to recommend it to you. While not gourmet, we had great fried calamari and pimientos de padron there. The bar is O Cortello and it would be worth writing to Mr. Davies to see if the owner actually retired.
Definitely print out his food glossary, it is a great resource.
It is a lot of fun to tapas hop in Pontevedra, but don't go out too early...
