Eating & drinkingEating & drinking


In La Palma you eat potatoes, meat and vegetables. But not the way we do at home. Fruit and vegetables in most restaurants are grown on the island. They may not look up to much but the flavour is excellent! In addition, pork in particular is an important part of the daily menu, but goat, lamb, rabbit and chicken are also eaten. And, of course, fish, from tuna and octopus to swordfish and sardines. With these you then eat yams, generally with a mojo (sauce made from paprika, garlic and herbs amongst other things). La Palma offers many home-produced wines, including the sweet Malvasia, internationally regarded as a leading wine.

Try:
  • Gofio: a dough made from barley, maize and wheat, used in soups, sauces, ice-cream and a kind of bread.
  • Papas Arrugadas: potatoes boiled in the skins in seawater, generally with mojos.
  • Goats' cheese (from Guía): not to be missed!
  • Potaje de berros: a watercress soup
  • Bienmesabe (literally: 'I like the taste'): a mix of honey, almond cream, eggs and rum
  • Platanos fritos: fried bananas
