One Night in Santiago de Compostela -- Food Plan?

Simon | Jul 19, 2014 06:47 AM

hi...we're NYC Hounds who will be in Portugal and Spain for 18 days in August...this is the first of many specific posts which will follow :)

Originally we'd planned on 10 days in Galicia but various reasons conspired to reroute the trip w/ 9 days Portugal followed 2 days at an inn in Ribeira Sacra, and only a single night in SdeC...we'll arrive there late afternoon and are staying in old town, then leave the next day for Madrid in late afternoon...

-- What would you recommend for dinner that first night?...we like rustic traditional food (nothing glossy-modern)...should we get a full dinner or do a tapas crawl?...what's a fun plan for that evening?

-- any lunch recs for the following day?...somewhere near the Cathedral/old-city as this will unfortunately be our only time to wander the city...

Thanks in advance...
