Pulpo a la Gallega

Pulpo a la gallega” is a dish popular in Asturias but eaten all over Spain. The dish generally consists of octopus, potatoes, smoked paprika, olive oil and garlic where the octopus is blanched and cooked in copper

We had this at El Aparcamiento in Valdes, just on the side of the A8. This under-spoken place was so good, we argued over what the best dish was. The natilla, the roasted lamb, the Fabada Asturiana or the Pulpo. But ultimately the Pulpo claimed the throne.

Note: Pulpo a la Gallega is also known as: polbo á feira, pulpo gallega, and pulpo á galega
