    Salsa Mojo: Canarian Gastronomy

    by Birsen Written Apr 26, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    mojo

    "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.

    El Gofio: Canarian Gastronomy

    by Birsen Updated May 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    gofio

    "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.

    M W Buffet Chino Restaurant.: Excellent Chinese Buffet in the Las Cantaras area.

    The restaurant.
    4 more images

    This Chinese buffet was so good that we went there 3 times and most of the times it was packed with customers. The ambience was lovely, soft Chinese music, lovely Chinese interior and a sea view of Playa de las Canteras. I would definitely go there again. Their motto is "Mas comida de la que te gustaria" but they have put up signs all over saying that by all means eat as much as you can - but ... do not waste! Which is a good reminder to people. Although you could eat as much as you wanted for only 6 euros, we saw incidence of people trying to find ways around not paying the bill. One man left his glasses on the table, apparantly to go out to smoke - and never returned :(

    There is a restaurant by the same name on Shaftesbury avenue in London, so this might be a chain??

    Favorite Dish: Everything was up to par.

    Sakura I and II: Sushi

    by Maria_75 Written Dec 4, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    La Garriga is a delicatessen shop who makes wonderful tortilla sandwiches and many other styles as well . They have different style and a secret recipe for this tortilla sandwich it is so smooth and surprisingly not made from potatoe. The hours are really weird they open after 5 pm. There are few stores in the city one in Mesa y Lopez area, another is very closed to Parque San Telmo, another one closed to Las Arenas Shopping center in Las Canteras area.

    Favorite Dish: Tortilla de la Garriga
    Pata sandwich (Canarian style pig leg)
