The holidays are in full swing and even though the weather is lovely where I live, cool and sunny, many of us dream of warm sandy beaches during the Christmas break. If you are planning on going or are currently in Las Palmas, Canary Islands I want to share one of my latest discoveries with you.
I love it when you go to a restaurant and you find that there is a dream behind the stoves. At Que Leche, near Triana, in Las Palmas there is a young couple who have been working at a number of different restaurants in mainland Spain and who have now come back to the island to recently start up (November 2014) their own place.
The restaurant is small, nicely decorated and located right next to El Gabinete Gastronómico which by the way is one of the best places if not the best to get wine on the island.
We had glazed scallops with miso sauce, wakame and tobiko.
Lightly scrambled eggs with shrimp from Huelva, sweet potato chips and truffle mayonnaise.
Ceviche with carrot air and lime
Gratin octopus with Herreño cheese (cheese from the Hierro Island) and confit potatoes
Cow tail tacos with avocado and pico de gallo
For dessert we had their famous cheesecake which I have to say I didn’t love but it might be because I am an American cheesecake kind of gal.
Their prices are very reasonable, you come out at around 25 -30 euros per head. Definitely a place to check out this holiday season.
