In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria you can try a large variety of traditional dishes that make up the Canary Islands gastronomy, from sancocho, made with a fish called “cherne”, to several meat dishes, including carajacas (a liver dish) accompanied by papas arrugadas con mojo (wrinkled potatoes with “mojo” sauce), suckling pig, marinated rabbit, leg of pork, ropa vieja (meat with chick peas and vegetables) or goat.

Don’t leave the city without trying one of these traditional dishes or tasting the pastries and confectionery that come from the villages in the interior of the island, such as the suspiros de Moya, bienmesabe de Tejeda or the delicious cakes made by the Cistercian nuns in Teror.

In Las Palmas de Gran Canaria ‘taperío’, trying different tapas or aperitifs, is also very popular. The areas of Vegueta, Triana, el Puerto and Tafira are the usual places for trying some of these tapas at small terrace bars.
