The best octopus on Ons
Palmira Acuña (Ons Island, 1947) is, since 26 February, the best pulpeira of Galicia. She runs the restaurant Casa Acuña, which was opened by her parents on Ons Island way back in 1945 and where her children now work. At the Fórum Gastronómico held in Santiago de Compostela, she went head to head with six other pulpeiros to see who could cook up the best polbo á feira (a traditional way of preparing octopus that Galicia is famous for). And she won.
