Fiestas Feira do Queixo / Festival of Cheese 3 March. Restaurante Carballeira on Rúa de Ramón Franco does traditional home cooking. The restaurant of Hostal Teodora, on Rúa Lugo, has been recommended.
Arzúa is the centre of a major cheese producing region with its own Certificate of Origin, Arzúa Ulloa. The type of cheese you'll see for sale everywhere is a simple, soft cheese made from cow's milk and known as queixo tetilla. It's sold in round blobs starting at about 500g (just enough to get you to Santiago!) Cafés around the town sometimes do cheese platters made up of local cheese. It's often eaten as a dessert with membrillo (quince). You'll also see this cheese for sale in Santiago, if you want to bring some home and you don't fancy carrying it.
