Well begin our Vigo food tour with a walk through the city streets to the local market, recently re-built into a modern new-age urban city market. There are stalls with literally everything you could imagine, from fresh produce to meats, and of course all the fish and seafood that is brought in every morning from the local fishermen.
After a quick stop at the market, our first stop will be a quaint bar near the Cathedral of Santa Maria de Vigo, where well try Ribeiro white wine served in typical tazas (ceramic bowls used for drinking). Well pair that with an empanada Gallega (Galician pie), Spanish tortillas, and so much more!
Then were off to a vinoteca (tavern) that specialises in Galician wines. Well try a young, red wine thats made of the Menica grape, and goes well with cured Spanish meats like jamn and chorizo, as well as try some local cheeses like Tetilla and San Simon.
Walking further through the old, cobblestoned streets of the port area of the city, well make our way to our very last stop. Here well try something this area is famous for: seafood! The catch of the day is usually mussels or some type of shellfish, but it all depends on whats available that day. Well accompany that with the famed Albario white wine from the D.O. Rias Baixas.
Its here that our tour will conclude, but be warned, the food and wine coma may linger for hours!
