Puerto del Carmen

Cuisine of Puerto del Carmen for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

The cuisine of Puerto del Carmen is a synthesis of the Spanish culinary traditions that the colonists brought here, and the dishes of the guachas – the indigenous inhabitants of the island. Guachas lived a wealthy life, tilled the soil, fished, and ate without any frills. However, their food was quite satisfying. The Spaniards, who liked to eat a lot and a variety of food, brought to the island a lot of vegetables and fruits, cows and rabbits. Something peculiar, not similar to either Spanish or African cuisine appeared as a result of this mix. For example, the tapas culture is not widespread at all here. There are tapas bars everywhere in the cities of continental Spain. A multi-plate tapas dinner is absolutely normal there. But you can only find this type of snack in places designed for tourists in Puerto del Carmen.
The resort offers a choice of more than a hundred inns and hotels, including the ones located near the coast, which are especially popular among travelers. In a vast tropical garden is one … Open

If you do not want to change your usual diet, you should look for those dishes that you like to eat at home. Just keep in mind that it's not easy to find sushi here. If you decide to plunge into the world of Canarian cuisine but do not imagine your life without snacks, then you should look for enyesques. This is a local version of tapas. Note that the portions are quite large here. Even a very hungry tourist may not be able to eat alone some dishes.
You should start the day with coffee. You can taste not only the standard variation but also Barraquito here. It is prepared only in the archipelago. If you order Barraquito then you will clarify exactly how to prepare it. "Con Todo" is the easiest option. It is a layer of condensed milk on the bottom, coffee with liqueur and ginger slices, and a layer of milk foam. Sugar and cinnamon are added depending on your preferences. Ginger can be replaced with grated lemon zest. You can also opt-out of the liquor altogether. Barraquito served in a high glass beaker with a small saucer. Copyright

You can order Conejo en Salmorejo for lunch. Pieces of a young rabbit are marinated in salmorejo sauce, fried and stewed. This dish is served on a large platter. Potatoes boiled in seawater are ideal as a side dish. It is also called papas arrugadas or patatas Canarias. It is usually eaten directly with the peel, pouring Moho sauce on top. It is worth noting that the most delicious variation of this dish is cooked from local small potatoes with dark peels. You may not find it in "tourist" restaurants. This is due to the fact that regular potatoes are cheaper and look better. So it is better to specify in advance what kind of variety you are offered.
Lanzarote Sunset You can find red and green mojo sauces on every table in any restaurant. Red sauce with pepper is better suited to meat and potatoes. Green sauce with parsley is usually added to fish dishes. Chuletas deserves attention from meat dishes. This is roast pork or lamb on a bone. You should also taste the Puchero Canario stew of pork and beef, and Potaje soup with pork ribs and corn.

There are a lot of goat meat dishes here. Goat's milk, cheeses, and yogurts are popular. Traditional Spanish Jamon is also delicious. Local chefs add gofio to many dishes. This is flour made from roasted wheat seeds or several varieties of corn. Gofio is added everywhere - in milk, to fried bananas, and in pastries. It is especially popular in the cold season.
Puerto del Carmen You should definitely taste fish dishes in Puerto del Carmen, even if you are not a big fan of seafood. Sancocho Canario is cooked perfectly here. This is boiled sea bass with Canary potatoes and mojo sauce. Vieja and Dorada are best from fried fish. However, you can also order an assortment of several types of fish. Boquerones made from marinated anchovies is a good snack. Be sure to taste shrimps with garlic and spices, large fried shrimps called langostinos, and assorted seafood – parrillada.

You should taste local bananas, especially in the form of flan pudding with caramel syrup. Canary bananas are much tastier than those that we are used to seeing in European markets. Prickly pear cactus jam is also interesting. Bien mesabe of eggs with lemon, with ice cream or cream, and small cakes stuffed with raisins, almonds, sweet potatoes and pumpkin syrup – Truchas navidenas are also delicious.
You can wash down the dessert with regular tea, fruit juice or sweet soda. Wines are the most popular alcoholic beverages. However, you can also find good beer, cognac, and delicious banana liqueur. You can find drinks from all over the world in the town thanks to the free economic zone.
