Sakura I and II: Sushi
Sakura is a japanese restaurant with great meals. They have two restaurants in Las Palmas and one in Playa del Ingl?s.
Try one of their menus! You get a lot of different meals for prices from 10-20 euro. Try also the japanese beer; Kirin. It?s not included in the menu (only local beer), but it?s worth the extra price.
The restaurants are very popular so in weekends it?s wise to book ahead so you don?t have to wait for a table.

El Gofio: Canarian Gastronomy
"Gofio" is a flour that can be made from almost any kind of grain. It is toasted and ground to give a fine, wholemeal flour.
There is also a "gofio" made from a mixture of wheat and corn. "Gofio" was the staple diet of the Guanches before the Spanish conquest of the Islands. They used mill stones to make it. Nowadays it is used as an added ingredient to many different dishes, and is now even being used very successfully to create new desserts and ice creams.
It was always a vital staple when food was in short supply and was taken to the Americas by Canary Island emigrants. In 1990, the "Canary Island Gofio Producers Association" was founded, which has successfully promoted gofio and won it its own quality label "Gofio Canario".
Favorite Dish: Try gofio icecream.

Salsa Mojo: Canarian Gastronomy
"Mojo", a word probably of Portuguese origin, is the Canary Island term for their typical sauces or dips. Not all sauces are called "mojos", just the typical ones that are originally from the Islands, so, for example, there are no mayonnaise "mojos", that would be a sauce, but there is a coriander "mojo". The best known "mojos" are coriander - or green - "mojo", although the green colour comes from the parsley it contains, "colorado" - or red - made with lots of paprika, and hot "mojo", made from chilli pepper. These are the main "mojos", but there are others, including ones made with saffron and cheese and almonds.
Favorite Dish: Try papa arrugadas with mojo souce.

La Cueva: don't miss this authentic restaurant!
this place is far but worth visiting. when you come to the place, (though i went there at night) you see that it is a small village but some houses are built inside the rocks, like caves. it is interesting to see a door (generally huge doors) , as if it is sticked on a rock, but as soon as that door is opened, you may see a house, a church or a restaurant inside. very authentic...
Favorite Dish: i advise you to try Chuleton de Novillo. A very big t-bone steak. but for a starter you should try ( i cant remember its name) a food made from potatoes. it has a shape of a big soussage, dark red nearly brown, with a great smell of cinnamon and ginger. and for the desert dont ever miss trying Helado con Bienmesabe. it is the best icecream i have ever tried..
