Anyone who knows the area will know that it’s very touristy. At this time of the year, we join the other North European swallows and have a three week stay in Playa de las Americas (and have just returned). We’ve given up cooking in the apartment - you havnt got the kit, you havnt got the ingredients, etc, that you have at home. And we certainly can’t be arsed to put the effort in, when we can eat a number of cheap touristy restaurants in less than five minutes walk from the apartment.
As always, a bit of restaurant research before going on holiday will work wonders. And, in amongst the bog standard tourist places with their pizzas and steak & chips, there are some very decent places, mainly cooking straightforward Spanish grills, etc. The following posts review the better ones, in the hope that other folk visiting the area might find them useful.
