I bet that there aren’t too many forum members who have walked the Francés and don’t know about the Pulpería Ezequiel. It was the original “go to” place for pulpo a feira in Melide (recently rivaled by Pulpería Garnacha), founded in 1960 by Mercedes and her husban Ezequiel. Ezequiel died years ago, and now it looks like their children are carrying on the family tradition.

That is so sad. I remember her well from 2006. Her hands looked very arthritic then. Cutting up all that Octopus...very hard work.

Señora Mercedes performed her magic three times for me with her pulpo. It’s sad to see a Camino institution pass but sadder for those who loved her. My thoughts go out to her family who can best celebrate their parents lives by continuing their legacy. I pray you all go well.
