Goose-neck barnacles or percebes

Any restaurants in the Philly area which serves percebes, otherwords known as goose-neck barnacles. Also, any restaurants specializing in food from the Galician region of SpaIn? Thanks.

  1. No and no. The Spanish restaurants in Philly don't stay close enough to tradition to really reflect any regional identity in the food. Tinto, for example takes it's inspiration from Basque pintxo bars but it's not really recognizable as one. Amada does have pulpo gallego, though.

    1. Have not seen them in USA, let alone Philadelphia. Had them a month ago in San Sebastian, and they were wonderful, better by far than those sampled in Gallicia. Guess l was lucky.
