GUADEC’s core days finished on Sunday. Some people departed then but still quite a lot of hackers have stayed for the three days of BoF, workshops and hacking.
If you are one of those, you may have already taken a good taste of what Galicia and Coruña can offer.
Therefore, I’m posting this entry to suggest a new option for the ones wanting to try new things from the vast offer os Spanish products.
Coruña is holding these days one of its most important annual festivals and because of that other regions of Spain have set a small town representing them and their typical food and products in the city center. This town has been placed in the “Jardines de Méndez Núñez” (Méndez Núñez’s gardens):
Castilla y León, Asturias, Castilla la Mancha, Cantabria, Andalucía y Aragón are the Spanish regions that have an own “house” in this town, although there are several other regions missing.
In their houses you will be able to find good food, usually as tapas, and good drinks. The price rates are a little bit higher than in the local “tapas” places but quite cheap nevertheless.
You are welcome to visit them and try some products, like morcilla (black pudding), from my own region: León.
