OUT ON THE CANARY ISLANDS
The variety and quality
of places to eat are second to none on the Canary Islands. With
a diversity of food to satisfy the hungriest appetite, or the
most discerning palates, from the humble Fish and Chips to a gourmet
banquet prepared by top chefs from around the world. You will
also find that most restaurants have excellent wines, including
the locally produced, as well as a selection of beers and spirits.
Caught fresh every
day, fish is a speciality on the Canary Islands having always
been one of the staples of these seafaring people. Why not treat
yourself to one of the many fish dishes cooked in the traditional
Canarian style, usually served with a Mojo sauce, either hot and
spicy or garlic, this is accompanied by fresh local vegetables
and fruit, a pleasure not to be missed during your stay.
Don't forget to try
the world famous Paella made with different kinds of fish, shellfish,
chicken or pork, served with saffron rice and bowls of delicious
salads and fresh baked rolls.
Maybe the hot fiery
curries from India are more to your taste or the delicate flavours
of the Orient are your passion, which ever it is to be, you will
find them in abundance, either to eat in or to take away, the
choice is yours.
During your holiday
in the Canary Islands, why not try a Tapas, an ideal quick snack
or light meal with a difference, consisting of small portions
of main meals such as meat balls, fried squid or cured ham, the
best way to try them is to choose two or three different ones,
a good idea if there is a group of you, that way you will have
maybe a dozen different dishes to share. A great way to sample
the local food.
Last, but by no means
least, there are the good old standards that we all know, like
Fish and Chips, Sausages, Chops, Steaks or delicious home made
pies. Don't forget The Big Breakfast a traditional full English
breakfast with tea or coffee served all day from early to late.
