Pop into a Panaderia for Coffee and a Chat

It’s been fascinating to observe the changes over 28 years living in the Canary Islands. None have been more interesting than the changes in the food and restaurant sector. 

In Tenerife, the changes came in waves. In the early 90s fast food arrived. McDonalds and Burger King opened in Playa de las Americas and in Santa Cruz; mid 90s it was Chinese restaurants popping up all over the place. There followed Thai, chill-out bars, Lebanese, et al. We’ve come a long way from the family restaurants and steak houses which predominated back in the day.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
