But Lourenza doesn’t just live off of fabas. There you can also try other typical Galician dishes with products like their grilled meats or delicious embutidos (a kind of sausage), which are typically prepared or served with fabas. Finally, very characteristic of Lourenza are the mazapanes (marzipan cookies) that are made in various establishments in a completely artisanal way, following a traditional recipe. And there’s nothing better for washing down these dishes than some Galician wine or brandy.

If you want to eat some tapas in Lourenza, we recommend Cervecería O Recanto. Our community of travelers specifically highlights the tapa de callos as a star recipe.

In this case it is better to order some dishes “a la carte”, as there are not many options of places to eat in Lourenza. On the “A la carte” section you will find some of our recommendations.

The options for eating in Lourenza aren’t excessive, but they are certainly sufficient for tasting the area’s typical gastronomy. An example is the restaurant at the hostel Baos, where they create menus with in-season products. Their customer service is also very good.

Another good alternative is Mesón O Pipote, whose specialties are callos, lamb, and Fabas de Lourenzá. A very pleasant location.
