So, yeah, this is very traditional from Galicia. They cut the the octopus thinly, and they put some oil and paprika, also.
Si no preparas bien el pulpo a la gallega, puede estar muy duro. "If you don't prepare the Galician octopus well, it can be very hard."
9. tortilla de patatas "Spanish omelet"
So this is made from eggs basically, potatoes, onion. So you can take them out if you don't like. It's a very simple dish, but I love it. We take it, for example, if we are doing a picnic or something, we might take like sandwiches with Spanish omelette inside. I love it.
Prefiero la tortilla de patatas con cebolla. "I prefer the Spanish omelet with onion."
10. arroz con leche "rice with milk"
Arroz con leche, which can be translated as “rice with milk”. It's a kind of rice pudding, but a bit more soupy, maybe, like, it's not very compact. Basically, it's rice, milk, some cinnamon, sugar; and it's really good. Like, when I was a child, I always order that desert.
Mi abuela solía hacerme arroz con leche. "My grandmother used to prepare rice with milk for me."
