For the moment I am going to tantalize the tastebuds with a recommendation for lunch. Be warned, this is not the place to go if you don't eat meat! There is nothing but meat on the menu. It's called Bodegon Campestre and can be found in La Esperanza in the north of Tenerife, just north of Santa Cruz, the capital.
From the outside it looks the same as many other restaurants that can be found along the winding roads that run from village to village. But inside the decoration is typically rustic. The walls are wood panelled and all types of farming and kitchen utensils hang from the beams. The tables and wooden and the seats are stools or long wooden benches. The plates are blocks of wood!
And hubby had the T-bone steak....
And these were accompanied by a salad and 'papas arrugadas' (wrinkled potatoes) which are typical in the Canary Islands. They are whole boiled potatoes which are cooked with their skins and plenty of salt. They are cooked until the water evaporates leaving salt on the skins and a wrinkled effect.
