Ourense concentrates the essence of the different gastronomic cultures of Galicia: from the coast it adopted a fondness for octopus, and from the interior the taste for meat and vegetables from the garden. Many of the most recognized products of Galician gastronomy are produced here, several of them protected with Denomination of Origin. Bread, meat, potatoes or (of course) wine are just a small sample of the base ingredients that are present in our dishes with great variety and quality.
