If you have never heard of Vigo it is a city that has always been associated with the Sea and the fruits that come from it! Vigo is the 2nd largest fishing port in the world just behind Tokyo, Japan. A city that faces the bay of Vigo on the Atlantic coast of North-western Spain. It is a hub for people wanting to taste the best seafood in the world!
On this food tour of Vigo our foodie guide will take you on a food walk thru the street of the new and old parts of the city centre. There is no better way to discover vigo than walking and eating as the local Vigueses do. Instead of sitting down in one restaurant to have a 3-course meal, we will visit three different spots offering some of the best food in vigo.
A visit to Vigo is not complete with taking a look in a local market, in fact, this will be the first stop on our food tour of vigo. The market of Progreso is local in the upper new part of the city, although a newly restored building now it has over 100 years of history offering some of the freshest produce in the city. Daily the fish and seafood; Hake fish, squid, octopus, scallops, etc... are brought up from the fishing port. Not forgetting about the amazing meats, Galician cheeses, vegetables, etc... It is a small but very well-stocked market for the locals of this part of Vigo to get their groceries.
Walking down the Calle Principe (Price Street) the street lined with designer clothing stores like; Zara, Blanco, Roberto Verino, etc... Arriving at the Plaza del Sol (Sun Square) which connects us to the old fishing quarter of Vigo city. This square is a meeting point in the city with an iconic statue of El Sireno (The Merman) sculpted by the artist Fransico Leiro.
Making our way deeper into the old part of town we arrive at the Plaza de La Constitución (Constitution Square), a square that celebrates every year on the 28th of March the Reconquista de Vigo (Reconquest of Vigo). One of the most important dates in the history of Vigo, as on this date in 1809, the honest farmers, fishermen, workers, etc.. with their pitch-forks, were able to win back their city and repel Napoleon´s troops out of Vigo city. A year later, Fernando VII granted Vigo the title of faithful, loyal, and courageous city.
After walking the streets of this urban coastal city, it is now time to sit and share some food and wines in a quaint Galician tavern located on the oldest street of the old part of town Calle de Cestieros (Wicker-basket maker street). Carmen always has quite a spread of local Galician cheeses prepared us, like the famous Tetilla cheese! We also taste the gourmet canned spider-crab pate with local crakers. All this alongside the Galician wines of the different Appellations of origin; D.O. Ribeira Sacra, D.O. Ribeiro, etc... We will try both white and red young wines made of local grapes... Mencia, Treixadura, etc... All products are locally sourced from small wine cellars, farms, fishermen, etc... keeping to the Slow Food movement of eating the products as close to home as possible.
The second stop is a fishy one! A must stop street in the city is the Calle de las Ostras (Oyster Street) or A Pedra Market (Stone Market). The name of this street is a dead give-away, it is the spot to eat seafood, especially Oysters. Here the Oyster men and women come in from the neighbouring village of Arcade where they farm the Oysters in the bay. They are lined-up on stone benches with crates of fresh oysters! For those who like raw oysters, you can get some and then sit down in the restaurant where Maria will have more seafood for us to savour. You will be treated to a Galician specialty, Arroz de Marisco (Seafood Fisherman´s rice dish). This Galician dish could be confused with the Spanish Paella, even called by some a Galician-Style Paella, but it is quite different since seafood is the flagship including various types of shellfish; Mussels, Prawns, shrimp, clams, etc... with more broth made of fish-stock and, other ingredients like paprika which is used quite a bit in the Galician cuisine. This dish has to be accompanied by the wine of the Sea, D.O. Rias Baixas Albariño wine.
Starting to get full... but not over yet... we will take a stroll along the promenade and nautical port where sits a bronze statue of Jules Verne, made by Jose Molares. Jules was a famous French writer who wrote the book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in which he dedicated a chapter to Vigo Bay and the sunken treasures from the Battle of Rande.
Our last stop on our vigo food tour is a sweet one! Sitting on the terrace of a cafe admiring the views of the nautical port we will end of tasting tour with the Tarta de Santiago cake, made of almond-meal accompanied by an expresso, coffee or tea.
