Buzio ‚ 

Yet another stew but this one consists of shellfish and soy sauce.


Served as a snack or appetizer and made with octopus, buzio or lapas and cooked with tomato, onion, and peppers.

Perceves (Sea Fingers)

The preparation and eating of this one may sound a bit strange; you crack off the end and then peel the skin to reveal the meat.

Bol de Cus-Cus‚ 

If you have a sweet tooth you‚re well catered for too. This sugary cake is made with corn and comes served alongside butter and cabra cheese.
