Granadas más caras en días de mercado

November 30, 2016

On market days, pomegranates are more expensive than on other days.

  • Friday 1-80 euros
  • Saturday 2-40 euros
  • Monday 1-80 euro
  • Wednesday 2-80 euros

This fluctuation may be due to suppliers, but doubtful.

Cappuccino y florentina en Lekkery

A bakery cum coffee shop in Icod de los Vinos.

San Andres 2016

November 29, 2016

A strange festival in Icod de los Vinos, kids hurtling down narrow streest on short planks of wood.

At the bottom of the street, a pile of tyres.

The festival marks the first of this season wine, availble on stalls, together with roast chestnuts.

The kids shooting down the street, dates from the barrels of wine being rolled down the street.

tu tienda ecológica

Aa lovely little wholefood shop in old part of Icod de los Vinos.

Limited stock.

Coffee Fair Trade and ecological, both meaningless in terms of quality and money going to farmers. And no roast date.

El Rastro en El Mercado

Last night heavy rain, still rain this morning.

Only a handful of stalls, few people.

Cena en el bar Magic Corner

November 26, 2016

 

Maybe dinner sometime after midnight not such a good idea.

Not good, chips hard and dried, sirloin steak so so.

A pity as Magic Corner used to do a good steak.

To drink, Dorado Espcial.

Very noisy.

Not pleasant ambience.

Typical unpleasant local bar.

Sopa en El Maná

November 25, 2016

Excelente sopa en El Maná.

Excellent watercress soup.

Excellent real ale from small local brewery.

Too late to eat, and nothing I fancied.

Cena en El Maná

November 23, 2016

Excelente cena en  El Maná restaurante vegetariano en Puerto de la Cruz.

As always excellent dinner in El Maná.

Following excellent flamenco at Teatro Timanfaya, late dinner at El Maná.

Was I too late, they close at 10-30 and I arrived not long before 10-30?

I would have been happy witha bowl of soup. It was ok, and no there was no soup.

Excellent tagalette with stir fried vegetables and chopped tomatoes.

To drink, real ale from a local brewery.

For sweet tiramisú.

And a cappuccino.

Never had before tiramisú of this quality.

A restaurant is not where would expect excellent cappuccino. El Maná that rare exception.

Also a rare exception, the only place in Puerto de la Cruz where can obtain a decent cappuccino.

They need though to replace their coffee cups.

Todos los Sabados.

Comida y todo.

Food and junk.

Ground floor and top floor of Municpal Market.

Mainly junk, but you can find everything: books, clothes, antiques, jewelry, knives, watches, honey, clothes …

First floor is food, fruit and vegetables, fish, little restaurants, a tea and coffee shop.

Most things can be found on this market. A strange cross between a car boot sale, farmers market and craft fair.
