Carretas Review

This casual spot for fresh Galician seafood is around the corner from the Hostal dos Reis Católicos. Fish dishes abound, but the specialty here is shellfish. Start with a plate of melt-in-your-mouth battered mini-scallops, then, for the full experience, order the labor-intensive variado de mariscos, a comprehensive platter of langostinos, king prawns, crab, and "goose" barnacles, a white or gray crustacean found in deep waters. Salpicón de mariscos presents the same creatures shelled. For dessert, there's the tastier-than-it-sounds fried milk pudding.
