Weekend so time for another foodpicture.
Normally I am careful to post a more negative review of a particular place on this forum seeing the owners are not aware of it , compared with places like Tripeadvisor ( the hilarious but correct name a moderator here gives for that website !).
Anyway I will make an exception for the general foodmarket/ inside hall of la Galiciana in Santiago de Compostela.
Un mercado gastronómico con 8 locales de cocina, 3 barras de bebidas y puestos delicatessen, en el corazón de Santiago de Compostela
You see these foodhalls popping up in every bigger city in Europe the last years ( well except for the last Covidyear) .More " concept" than " restaurant ". So in this case a central hall gives different restaurateurs the possibility to have their own kitchen on the premises. Then there are central tables where you can sit down and eat what you ordered and can go back for a second choice at another stand.
At the time that I visited there was also a beercafé and fancy winebar.
A bit of a sterile environment and for these three meagre croquetas I paid 4€. I believe that when I visited it was not that long open so maybe next time I should visit again.
Don't get me wrong I do not believe I was ripped off being a tourist because the pricelist was there for everyone to view.
I have no clue if it attracts enough customers , although again seeing the open space and the ability of more social distancing than in a small tapasplace it might be a good alternative for those who do no want to enter a busy place in the old centre.
It was just not my thing.And not to compare with the wonderful hawker centres in Singapore.
