Restaurants in Tenerife

  
Although Canarian cuisine is derived from Spanish cuisine, it has typical elements that distinguish it from its origins. The main ingredients are potatoes, fish, bananas, legumes, cheese, sauces and spices. The excellent staple food is the gofio a mixture of flour from toasted wheat or corn that can be consumed both as a starter and as a dessert. Gofio escaldado, based on fish stock can be served with fried garlic and onion.
The gofio escaldon is semi-liquid, while paella de gofio is a kind of bread made from gofio, water, oil, salt and sugar. Pella dulce is a dessert with honey, almonds and figs.
The papas arrugadas (wrinkled potatoes) the side dish for excellence, are potatoes that are boiled and pan-fried with a lot of salt, so as to leave a crust on the peel. They are usually served with the mojo, a sauce made of garlic, olive oil, salt and vinegar.

The mojo can be green, mojo verde made with coriander or parsley or red, mojo rojo or mojo picón, made with chili peppers.

Fish is, indeed widely used in Canarian cuisine. The most widely used fish is Vieja which has soft and very tasty white flesh. Among the most popular fish dishes are sancocho (prepared with boiled grouper and accompanied by potatoes, gofio and mojo), pescado encebollado (an oven based fish), embarrado de atún (marinated fresh tuna), and burgaos (Atlantic crustaceans with an extraordinary flavour).

The dish conejo en salmorejo is one of the most common, and it is prepared with pieces of rabbit that are marinated and then fried. Other very popular and appreciated meat dishes are made with meat and vegetables, such as rancho canario or puchero, and dishes with goat (cabra) or suckling goat (cabrito), Chorizo is a cured sausage made from pork and peppers.

The most typical desserts are bienmesable (a cream made with honey and almond), flan (caramel pudding), and miel de palma (pal molasses). The local fruit is that one typical of the Tropics: bananas papayas, melons, mangoes, avocados and pineapples.
