Fuerteventura - Tapas Guide
We focus here on some typical dishes and products that we think are worthwhile trying during your holiday on Fuerteventura. You will find these dishes in many typical Spanish restaurants and in Tapas bars.
- Tomatoes from Fuerteventura are considered to be among the most flavoursome in Europe and are used in many renowned restaurants on the continent.
- Queso Majorero: soft goat cheese. This Fuerteventura cheese is completely different from what you are used at home. This is an absolute must to try. There are 3 major classifications: “Tierno” (soft), “Semi-curado” (medium-aged) and “Curado” (aged). There are also variations with peppers, Gofio, oil, etc. Please try first the fresh one (Queso fresco).
- Aloe Vera from Fuerteventura is one of the best of its kind. Fuerteventura offers the best conditions for the cultivation of Aloe Vera. Look for local products with a high concentration and vending places that offer you information about the plants. Don’t go for the cheap stuff.
- Local fish from Fuerteventura is a great opportunity to enjoy absolutely fresh and tasty fish. The ultimate dish is a “Pescado a la Sal” for min 2 people.
- Papas arrugadas are wrinkled potatoes to accompany fish or meat dishes. You eat them with the skin.
- Salsa Mojo is a mixture of olive oil, parsley, dried peppers and a lot of garlic. If it is too strong for you, then scoop of the oil and spread the oil onto your bread.
