Fiesta Food

Fiesta Food

No fiesta would be complete without the proliferation of artery clogging, fast foods such as hamburgers and hot dogs, served from the multitude of stalls temporarily lining the square. The pepitos (hot rolls), usually meat or chicken, are a much better choice, I think. And, just to add that Canarian touch, you can get them with crazy potatoes, which here are called papas, not patatas as they are in Spain.

See where this picture was taken. [?]

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
