Best Bite – Tixola de Berberechos o Limon

Yesterday we found O Curro Da Parra in the old part of Santiago.

We had a great meal sampling almost everything on their interesting and compact menu, include the tapa designed specifically for Forum Santiago/Forum Ciudad.

Everything we had was very good and the dishes were smart and innovative. But the best thing was the most simple –  tixola de berberechos o limón– cockles with lemon.

It was simple, flavourful and perfectly prepared a wonderful homage to market-fresh galician seafood purchased at the market around the corner.

We closed the place and had a fantastic conversation with one of the owners.
