La Carpintería - Isla de Tenerife

La Carpintería

Tasca La Carpintería: La Carpintería

This establishment in La Laguna is quite popular among the locals, and I can clearly understand that fact; La Carpintería (the carpentry) is probably one of the best tascas (kind of an old fashioned tapa bar) I've ever been. The rations are huge, and I mean, really really huge, both in quantity and in quality, with prices that are a bit below the already low overall prices of the Canary Islands.

Favorite Dish: They serve a "Pa amb tumaca" with jamón that is absolutely delicious, as well as a huge tortilla de patatas that you cannot miss.

El Monasterio - Isla de Tenerife

El Monasterio

Monasterio: A Temple for the food

The most fascinating fact about El Monasterio is that it is build over the remains of an authentic monastery. Apparently, the owners of the restaurant putted a good pile of money in front of the few monks that lived there, who didn't have to think it twice to make the deal. After being acquired and restored, El Monasterio become one of the most charismatic restaurants of the Island, especially because of its placement, at the top of the Orotava valley (the views from the terrace are quite remarkable).

Nowadays, it includes 5 different restaurants, from a cafetería, a couple of tapa bars and the original top end restaurant, which is the one I'll like to recommend. There, the monastic atmosphere could still be admired.
